Mighty Mix Dog Trials
Show image

Farm dogs are an important part of everyday life on many New Zealand farms. They are purpose-bred dogs that are trained to round up stock and shift animals through gates, into pens or onto trucks. Many farmers take part in dog trial competitions around the country. These are normally stand-alone events in remote areas, so viewing the competition at the Show offers a unique opportunity. Duck Herding (dog trialling with pekin ducks instead of sheep) at lunchtime is not one to be missed.

A Show favourite, the Mighty Mix Dog Trial section has a continuous three-day programme kicking off with Sheep Dog Trials on Wednesday and Thursday followed by Yard Dog Trials on Friday. Find out more about Mighty Mix Dog Food by clicking here.

Where: Mighty Mix Dog Trial Arena, Macfalane Avenue
When: Daily from 7.30am
