Sheep dogs

SHEEP dogs are vital to the work of sheep farmers and they won't be forgotten next weekend.

On Saturday Teagasc's dog expert Eamon Egan will be at the shearing championships to conduct a workshop on how to train your sheep dog puppy. Anyone with a pup to train is invited to bring it along and Eamon will give advice and demonstrations on how best to train the animal.

As part of the shearing event, the National Sheepdog Trials will take place on Sunday in a field adjoining the Portlaoise Rugby Club.
