Koroit’s soccer floor is not any peculiar park after being reworked into an impediment course to check a few of Australia’s finest sheepdogs.

Whereas house owners stand on a peg close to the targets, their canine 70 metres away skilfully chases down three sheep following particular instructions right into a eight-metre hall.

It’s the Australian Sheepdog Championships at Koroit, Victoria, and in contrast to in a canine park, there isn’t any mucking round on this area.

Homeowners stand straight because the peg beside them, and usually are not allowed to flap or wave their arms about to get their canine’s consideration.

This 12 months, Australia celebrates 150 years of sheepdog trials.
