QWCDTA president and NBPE committee member Adam Sibson says as many as 130 dogs could be competing in the Open trial alone.

"There will be a trophy and up to $1000 cash prize money on offer in each level so the stage is set for a great few days of dog trialling," Mr Sibson said.

The trials commence at 7am on Friday, June 4 at the Equestrian Centre and Dalrymple Saleyards and finishes on Sunday, June 6.

The Open final will be run under lights on Saturday night (June 5) with the top 10 plus dogs battling it out for top honours.
