Lake District Sheepdog Trial and Hound Show

Sheepdog trials and hound shows in England's Lake District are entertaining for weather-beaten shepherds, gentleman farmers, and curious tourists alike. The fascinating local culture is alive and well and on full display. The main event is the master directing his trusty, intelligent dog to bring in the sheep as quickly as possible.

Be there: You'll enjoy watching sheepdog demonstrations — and meeting the dogs, the sheep, and their humans — on Rick Steves' Best of England, Best of Scotland, and Best of Ireland tours.
