Covid-19 - Sheepdog Trial Status

The lack of sheepdog trials and the frustration that some of our members are experiencing is becoming increasingly apparent, and we fully appreciate the reasoning behind this. 

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic the Society's viewpoint has maintained that to ensure the health and well-being of our members we do not condone the hosting of trials. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, and we try to work in a fair manner and take every aspect into consideration to support all our members, and base the decisions we make on the majority rather than the minority.

We continue to work with our insurance company and await their instruction regarding the insurance of our affiliated trials, and as soon as possible we want to allow these to proceed. However we must follow their instruction, and at present we do not have a date that they expect to be able to offer the cover. Conversations take place on a weekly basis with our insurers, and as soon as we are advised that trials can progress we will ensure our members are undated immediately.

We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
