Herding tests offer herding breed owners a way to measure a dog's basic instinct and trainability. Competitive herding trials preserve and develop the herding skills inherent in the herding breeds and demonstrate that they can perform the useful functions for which they were originally bred. Herding trials are designed to be simulations of pastoral or farm situations.
