College students in Curtis with a livestock dog by their side have more than a companion.

Their canine friend often is a partner in handling livestock such as cattle or sheep.

This weekend, two Kansas dog trainers are featured at a hands-on clinic at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture.

Spectators are invited to attend, to pick up a few tips on stock dogs and meet the NCTA students who comprise the NCTA Stock Dog club and competition team.
