Finding Inspiration At Every Turn

Founded in 1938, the Oregon Sheep Dog Society is the oldest sheep herding club in North America. Steeped in history and tradition, OSDS is proud to carry forward the legacy of handler and their best friend. We are passionate about the relationship between handlers and their dogs and it is the goal of OSDS to provide support and resources not only to our members, but also to our community.  You can find resources for all of your stock dog needs here on our site. The Oregon Sheep Dog Society is excited to offer contacts and listings for our community on our resources page and you can stay up to date on upcoming clinics, trials, and events on our calendar under the OSDS Sanctioned Trials & Events tab.  You can also follow along on our blog, Facebook and Instagram to see what is happening in the stock dog community. Don't forget to stop in our shop and support the club. The Oregon Sheep Dog Society is a non-profit organization and all proceeds go to supporting the club and its community.
