Dog trials a family affair

When Simon Fowler started trialing dogs a couple of years after leaving college, he was always one of the younger guys at events.

At 29, the Wairau Valley Collie Dog Trial Association president is still a relative young 'un and is keen to attract others to his "work-related sport".

The association trials are on tomorrow and Sunday at Glenmae 11km west of Wairau Valley township on State Highway 63.
A feature of the weekend will be the novice competition with prize money of $500.

In stepping into the president's shoes, Simon is carrying on a long-lasting family tradition. His father Harry is a past president, great-grandfather Jack was among a group of men who started trials in the valley and his great-uncle Gerald is the association's patron. MORE>>

If you have never seen a dog Trial, go and see it... it's really fun to watch. Mesmorizing actually.
