Getting Started

Yard Dog Trialing is a sport which has classes of competition from Beginner to Championship,  so there is something to suit everyone no matter what your level of knowledge and experience. 

Classes include: Junior (under 17), Beginner, Encourage, Local, Maiden, Novice, Improver and Open as well as Regional, State and Australian Championships.

Most competitors are more than happy to help you along the way, perhaps until you start to beat them!  

Some areas have dog clubs holding training days and schools which cater for all standards of expertise. 

If you are wanting to start training dogs and competing please contact anyone on the committee or executive who is closest to where you live (see the Home Page) and they will assist you. 

There are trials held by Working Dog Clubs and Ag Show Societies all over Australia. NSW Regional Championship Trials must be applied for and are granted by the NSWYDA on their merit, these trial winners gain double points in the Annual Pointscore Competition and the overall winners represent that trial at the NSW Championships each year.

So if you would like to find out more about this sport please contact us soon and start making new friends and having some fun with your dogs.
