Sheepdog & Lamb Nationals

Bob Hogg Sheepdog Display & The Lamb Nationals

Bob Hogg has earned himself an excellent reputation for his professional and highly entertaining displays, in which the dogs work sheep, geese and ducks. The display is informative for the adults, as Bob shares his unique training methods and great fun for the children, as they are invited into the arena whilst the dogs work the ducks around an obstacle course, down a slide and into a pool.

The Lamb Nationals

This event really is one for all the family as you watch the stars of track and field:

The hardy Herdwick sheep are in sheep shape and are a breed known for their agility as they originate from the challenging terrain of the Lake District in Cumbria, UK and need to be able to jump to negotiate natural hazards.

In their individual colours, jumping over fences to complete the race.

The Lamb Nationals provide an amusing commentary from the initial parade where the runners & riders are introduced with names such as ‘Red Ram’ and ‘No Ewe Turns’ and throughout the race describing each sheep’s attempt to bleat the competition.
