Come watch the country's smartest dogs compete for the coveted Midwest Championship Sheepdog Competition at Badlands Sno-Park outside of Hudson, WI. Watch dogs and handlers compete under time pressure to move sheep through a complicated course. Gather under a big, shady tent, rain or shine, cheering for your favorite dogs and groaning as a recalcitrant sheep escapes at the pen at the last second. Although the action on the course is compelling, besides being a great test of good dogs and handlers, the scenery is flat out gorgeous. This is the 34th year that the competition has entertained families and dog lovers, making it the second longest running "sheepdog trial" in the country.
