National Bergamasco Sheepdog Alliance “Flock Together” Photo Challenge

We are never more delighted than when a breed club honors National Purebred Dog Day with a photo challenge sponsorship. Such clubs are the lifeblood for a breed, their sole goal to protect and preserve the legacy of their breed. Please welcome first time sponsors, the National Bergamasco Sheepdog Alliance, provisional with the United Kennel Club. The Bergamasco is a sheepdog with an unusual coat, but do not the mistake of describing it as “corded,” it is, in fact, “flocked.”

The Club’s clever contest theme?  “Flock Together!”

The challenge:

“Flock” describes the coat of an amazing sheepdog breed, of course, but it is also group of sheep (and birds) assembled together. As a verb, it refers to a group moving towards something with excitement. Your job is to creatively interpret the word “flock” into a photograph using your dog(s) to illustrate your interpretation. Our judges love to laugh, be surprised, or get impressed with a different way of seeing a theme, so be thinking “outside the box” with this one;
