One Man and His Dog

Four National Teams - England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales - compete to be crowned 2011 Champions in the Young Handlers, the Brace and the Singles rounds.

The Young Handlers, all of whom are under the age of 18, take to the field first, setting the pace and the standard for the rest of the competition.

Next up is the Brace, one man has two dogs and ten sheep to control around the demanding Balmoral Castle course.

And finally the Singles round, one man, one dog but with two flocks of sheep. This round decides the ultimate winning team of One Man and His Dog 2011.
