Welcome to the International Sheep Dog Society



The health and well-being of our members, competitors, volunteers and staff is of paramount importance. Advice from the Government and health officials regarding Covid-19 is changing daily with stronger restrictions being implemented and enforced. Considering this, we have concluded that all National, International and World trials will not take place this year. 

All our staff are now working remotely from their homes and we continue to provide service and support to our members in the normal way, however we are experiencing delays in processing of work of up to two weeks, please do bear with us and we appreciate your patience. Contact with the office can be made in the usual way by telephone 01234 352672 or email 

For the foreseeable future we have unfortunately had to close our online shop. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. However, we are still able to process online membership applications and the purchase of pedigrees. Please click on the images below to be redirected.




The International Sheep Dog Society is a member organisation and registers over 6,000 Border Collie pups every year on behalf of its members. The ISDS Number and Dog Certificate are a guarantee of pedigree that, for most dogs, can be traced back over 100 years.

Since 1906 the Society has been working for Sheep Dogs - find out how you can get involved with whats going on!
