Max's Sheep Worrying Sign

As part of its continued work to highlight the serious and devastating issue of sheep worrying by dogs NSA held a children’s competition to help raise awareness to dog walkers and others enjoying the countryside.

NSA challenged children in three age groups, under eight, eight to 12 and 13-16 to design a new sign that asks dog walkers to keep their pet on a lead when walking in areas where sheep may be present. Max, aged 9 from Kent won the competition and his sign has now been made into a digital download which farmers are encouraged to print off and use on their farms.

There were many excellent entries to the competition. Thank you to all who entered.
