Talk about four-legged focus! Celebrating 26 years, the World Stock Dog Championship is one of the most exciting events of the Calgary Stampede with these startlingly agile and intelligent dogs moving three sheep through a challenging course and into a pen in less than four minutes.

Our 2023 event is sanctioned by the Alberta Stock Dog Association. The competition will start with 60 entries Tuesday, July 11, continuing with the second round Wednesday, July 12, but only the top 12 dogs will advance to the championship final round on Wednesday afternoon July 12 at 3:30p.m. in the Nutrien Western Events Centre.

Proudly presented by the Calgary Stampede Livestock Competitions Committee
