Star of the North SDT 2021

Star of the North Stockdog Trials

Star of the North SDT started in 2006 and has been running ever since except for two years. It is hosted at Gale Woods, a regional park in the Three Rivers Park District and a working farm.

Gale Woods host a Festival of Working Animals the same weekend as the trial to celebrate the animals that work on the farm and those who supply food for the Gale Woods community. The sheepdog trials are an important part of the festival.

The trial is hosted on a 30 acre hay field in the north end of the farm with an outrun for the Open classes of close to 500 yards and fair bit of roll to the terrain that makes the fetch challenging.

The ProNovice/Nursery  course is to the right of the Open course and features and outrun of 250 yards and is forgiving for younger dogs.

The 2021 trials will be held September 24th - 26th with the Festival of Working Animals on Saturday September 25th. The judge for this year's trials will be Nancy Penley from Colorado.
