Stock Dog Competition

Stock dog trials at the EISF have been held in one form or another since the late 1980’s. These trials are “Open to the World” and to any breed of stock dog. The trials are sponsored by the Eastern Idaho State Fair and the Eastern Idaho Stock Dog Association. The trials are held to showcase the skills of good working dogs and to increase the knowledge base of the general public about working dogs in general. Most of the dogs participating come from local breeders and working ranches.
