Angel and Flow will battle it out to see who is Tasmania’s hardest working dog in the Cobber Challenge.

The two dogs – Angel from Ross and Flow from Fingal – were selected from Tasmanian entrants in the national trial of endurance and speed over three weeks.

Both dogs will wear a GPS collar, which will track how fast, far and long they run each day for three weeks from August 28.

Their results will be calculated and ranked against 10 other competitors from around Australia to find out the country’s top working dog.

Flow’s owner Bradley McDonald entered the pure-bred black-and-tan kelpie and Alexander Gregory nominated Angel.

Mr McDonald thinks Flow is in “with a good chance” because she is “the fittest she’s ever been” and has been putting in the hard yards at a Fingal Valley farm.
