Four days of spectacular stock dog trialing, culminating in a Monday show stopper ... a team-to-team double lift with the top handlers and dogs.

The WWSDA trials have been renamed the 34th Annual WWSDA Midwest Championship Stockdog Trials, but it's still the same great "world class" field near Hudson, Wisconsin.   The top 12 Open teams from Friday and Saturday qualify to run the challenging Double Lift Championship on Monday.  The winner of this Double Lift then qualifies for the prestigious 2020 Soldier Hollow Invitational.

At the Spring 2019 WWSDA annual members meeting, members continue to agree that one of the primary directives of the WWSDA is to encourage and support Novice handlers and dogs.  With that in mind, they realized that the Hudson venue, sheep and various draws did not create a healthy and successful situation for our Novice dogs and handlers.  The board is currently exploring other possibilities, and hoping to combine an educational opportunity with a trial later this year.   Stay tuned for more information.   We strongly encourage Novice handlers to come to the Labor Day Weekend trials, volunteer to scribe, work the pens, man the front gate and watch the runs.   We can learn so much from watching the experienced handlers and dogs.
