SHEEP DOG TRIALLING: Victorian handler Greg Campbell has 16 dogs in Warwick for this week's Australian Supreme Championships and the perfect answer to why he likes the sport.

"I am too old for footy, too young for bowls and I don't like golf," Campbell said.

"It is a really good sport and the venue in Warwick is terrific.

"The storm a few days ago created a bit of havoc but no damage."

He and his wife, Davina Campbell, are in town with 16 dogs.

"Davina works half of them," he said.

"She's been beating me on the way to Warwick, winning the Australian novice championship at Cobar with Glamorgan Roy."

The Campbells come from Sutherlands Creek, just out of Geelong.

One of his best dogs is O'Kane's Trudy, the dog he is working for Victoria in the interstate competition.
