Border Collie Fun Day on Sunday 6th July 2014, 11am to 3pm!
Dr Katrina Warren and Kelly Gill are holding their third Border Collie Fun Day at Castle Hill Showground, Dog Arena (Doran Drive, Castle Hill). It will be a family friendly event, inviting Border Collie owners to bring their dog's for a social afternoon of Border Collie activities. They also expect a lot of spectators as people are welcome without a dog.
‘Dr Katrina and Kelly Gill are delighted to welcome Orchard Hills Veterinary Hospital to our Border Collie Fun Day. Dr Camille Brandt will be our official vet on the day and will also be offering free veterinary checks and answering your Border Collie health questions.’
The Fun Day will be showcasing a wide variety of Border Collie activities, including sheep herding, tricks, flyball, agility, treibball, nose work, heelwork to music, obedience and frisbee.
Treibball (pronounced try-ball) is an awesome new dog sport and is a fun game for dogs of any size or breed. Dogs learn to run around 8 large exercise balls, pushing the balls one at a time with their nose or shoulder straight into the goal as quickly as possible. Treibball promotes better teamwork and communication between dog and handler as they develop skills in distance work and impulse control.
There will be stalls, show bags, fun competitions, photo opportunities and interactive activities.
Dr Katrina and Kelly Gill are also out to find the fastest border collie over a sprint, racing against the clock.
The day will also be raising money for Border Collie Cancer Research, with a huge raffle and lots of other fundraising activities.
