If you're an animal-lover, and enjoy competition as well, the Wisconsin Working Stock Dog Association's 34th Annual Labor Day Trials are something you'll want to see. Witness some of the best shepherds and sheepdogs in the country compete for the title of "Top Dog" in one of the most beautiful settings anywhere in Minnesota or Wisconsin. You will be amazed at what these dogs can do, how they work using their own talents and in partnership with their handlers to gather sheep and move them with care and precision over hills, around gates and obstacles and into pens. They don't make noise. They don't use teeth. They move their flock with the power of the Border Collie "eye," and the best brain in all of dogdom.

So bring a lawn chair and a picnic and sit on a sun-drenched hillside pasture, or gather under the big tent with a lamb brat or burger and listen to the play-by-play explain what each dog is doing and what the judge is looking for. Bring the entire family and friends and make a day of it. You will be amazed. You'll cheer for your favorite dogs and groan as a wiley sheep escapes at the pen and your favorite needs to give chase and bring her back.

Rain or shine, the event is open to the public.
