Covid-19 - Message from the NZSDTA President

The NZ Government mandated COVID-19 Protection Framework (“CPF”), which is the new 3-level traffic light system come into effect from, Friday, 3rd December 2021, to keep our communities safe.

I understand that there is much discussion and perhaps confusion around just where we as an organisation sit with regard to vaccination requirements.

On December 13th the government are revisiting the traffic light system and percentage of vaccinated people and will likely make further announcements at that time.

This is an ever-evolving situation and given that the majority of our hill trials do not commence until late in January, I believe that it is too early to make any firm decisions at this time.

We ask that all members adhere to government directives and guidelines. For the latest Covid-19 information visit:  Unite against COVID-19 (

Thank you for your understanding and patience through these challenging times.  Please take care, stay safe, respect others and their opinions.

Message from the NZSDTA President  - August 2021 

Regarding 2021 Trans Tasman Test

Regrettably, due to the extreme uncertainty of safe travel with the ongoing Covid-19 situation,  I wish to advise  that the New Zealand Sheep Dog Trial Associations’ test team will not be travelling to Tasmania for the impending Trans Tasman test series in October.

This decision has not been an easy one, but in the end it is apparent that we cannot travel with confidence, due to the airline policies and government isolation rules that are continuously changing thus bringing significant financial risk.


Phasing out of Cheques

Due to our banks phasing out of cheques, competitors are advised to take their bank account numbers and give to club secretaries on entering at each trial.
