The United States Border Collie Handler's Association (aka USBCHA) hold National championships to find the number one sheepdog/owner combo. Trials are held throughout the United States and Canada where man's best friend struts his stuff by having a smooth, authoratative approach that says, “Hey, puffball, I own you.”
To get in the game, you've got to find the right dog – a chiunana won't do. Champions are usually tenth generation prize herders but there's no reason you and fido the friendly neighborhood collie can't give it a go. At worst, you'll lose.
