Within his display Meirion will inform the process from having a pup the skills and tips needed to train your sheepdog, the dogs used by Meirion are Border Collies by the names of Trea, Sam, Jess, Helen & Sian and they will be guided around the sheep using a series of voice and whistle commands.
During the display Meirion will invite a member of the audience in to the ring to have the opportunity of working one of his dogs around a small flock of sheep.
