The premier league of shepherding talent from England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland must battle it out over two rounds – the singles, where they run one dog, and the notoriously difficult brace, where they must work two dogs at the same time. Whoever gets the highest combined score secures the pride of their nation and the coveted One Man and His Dog title. Who has got what it takes?
