International Trials

Following the four National Trials the International Trial is held, it usually takes place in early to mid September. The International trial rotates around the four nations year on year.

Qualification for teh Supreme takes place during days one and two of the International trial. The ultimate test in the annual calendar is the Supreme Championship Course. in which the dog has to go and fetch ten sheep, bring them to the middle of the field, and then turn to fetch another ten sheep.

For this reason it is called a 'double fetch'. 

This is used at the International Trials to find the best from the final fifteen dogs.
