The Texas Hill Country Stock Dog Association (THCSDA) was established to create an interest and understanding in the breeding, working, training & trialing of stock dogs in our immediate area.

Our organization offers training clinics by professional trainers several times a year.

We create a network of relationships among our membership and others who are involved.

We try to offer “playdays or practice days” at a member’s farm. Playday/Practice days are a time for members to bring their dogs for the benefit of having the opportunity to work stock and get tips and pointers from some of the more experienced handlers. Please review requirements for new or prospective members before attending a playday. Contact Karen Trimble at karentrimble1965@gmail.com if you are interested in hosting one or attending one.

Finally, THCSDA sponsors stock dog trials, fun events and clinics each year. Since our inception, we have held playdays twice a month, sponsored several annual clinics, provide stock dog herding demonstrations, and working on more for the future. Be sure to check on the monthly Playday/Practice day calendars.
