Working Sheepdogs is based on Leault Farm, Kincraig which is only 7 miles from Aviemore at the very heart of the Scottish Highlands.

During a 45-minute demonstration amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, you will see up to eight dogs working as a team manoeuvring sheep through various obstacles.

Every dog has its own set of commands enabling visitors to see just how each of them responds to their individual whistles and each move by the dogs is explained by their handler, Neil Ross.

This truly is an experience not to be missed, giving people of all ages the chance to enjoy and participate in the traditional working day of a Highland Shepherd and his dogs.

Meet the collie pups, see the orphan lambs and take part in shearing a sheep. You'll have excellent opportunities to capture some unforgettable memories - so don't forget your camera!

Neil offers dog handling and training advice and is willing to answer any questions interested visitors may have regarding training their own dogs.

We start at 4pm so please arrive 10-15 min ahead of time. Arrivals after 4pm may not have guaranteed entry to farm and will miss some activites. We can not offer discounted admission for late arrivals.

You are very welcome to bring your own dog, we ask that it is kept on a lead at all times and is kept under control so as not to disturb the other visitors or the working dogs!

We DO have hand-washing facilities available for visitors, however, please note that we do NOT have public toilets available!

Please be aware the entire show is OUTDOORS, so dress for the weather and sturdy footwear is recommended!
