Welcome to the Meeker Classic NCA National Cattledog Finals!
Meeker Classic dog trials intertwine dogs, stock, heritage and trade into a weeklong showcase of volunteerism, sportsmanship and friendship. Even more so significant is the true sense of community it eleicits for all those involved. Meeker is “something!” Meeker is recognized worldwide for its reputation for putting on dog trials and will be a draw as this new event is initiated.
Set in the beautiful White River Valley, the Meeker Classic brings you a showcase of North America’s best cattledogs competing in the World’s Largest Cattledog trial. We partner with the National Cattledog Association in hosting the NCA Finals featuring the top 140 qualifiers competing in 5 different classes running on two fields over five days.
Meeker has a rich tradition of dog trials dating back 30 years with the Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials. The community of Meeker and Rio Blanco County welcome the opportunity to host this annual cattledog trial of North America’s best. We salute these dogs and their handlers who have faced adversity, overcome challenges and invested so much to get to this point.
Those who come are bound by a common thread that pays homage to the dogs – it transcends generations, cultures and livelihoods and brings people together for this celebration of the Meeker Classic National Cattledog Association National Finals.
