Kevin Miller, Whitty Lennon and Co is holding its second working dog auction at Forbes Showground on Saturday, July 25.

Auctioneer James Litt said they have an experienced lineup of 17 dogs aged from 8 months to four years old.

The dogs come from around NSW, including from Mudgee and all the way down to the Victorian border.

Mr Litt said they expect to see a more experienced lineup based on what the vendors have written about them.

Details about the dogs are up on Kevin Miller, Whitty Lennon and Co's Facebook page.

The sale includes demonstrations which get under way in the yard dog trial area of the Showground at 11am.

Mr Litt said the dogs will be able to show their skills before the sale.

Buyers will have the chance to speak with the vendors before the auction begins at 1pm. There will be canteen services available on the day.

To help with social distancing, Mr Litt said they are asking that people interested in attending the auction to bring their own camp chairs and maintain social distancing regulations.

Along with this, visitors will have to register on the day for the purposes of contact tracing.

For those who can't make it to on the day, the demonstration and auction will be live-streamed on Kevin Miller, Whitty Lennon and Co's Facebook page.

Mr Litt said people who can't make it on the day can pre-register and place phone biddings on the day.
