Teviotdale sheepdog trial

The annual sheepdog trial, organised by Upper Teviotdale Pastoral Society, takes place again this Sunday (August 31) at Whitchesters Farm, just south of Hawick.

Last year, there were 50 competitors and event organisers are predicting another strong entry this year with enquiries coming in from as far afield as Germany and Switzerland.

The event is once again sponsored by Eric Watson Dog Foods and Royal Bank of Scotland, with grateful thanks to hosts Forest and Mary Irving.

Visitors are welcome to spectate with the first run available at 8am.
