An Airdrie father and son are once again out to make their mark during the World Stock Dog Championships at the Calgary Stampede. 

Dad Milt and son Kier first competed together during the 2017 Stock Dog Competition at the Stampede and each turned in solid performances, making the finals.  Milt ended up taking third place with his dog Josie and sixth with Finn, the dog he won the World Championship at the Stampede in 2016.  Kier wound up in 12th place with his dog Sweep.

Yesterday (July 10), both were well back in the first go-round of the 2018 championships and son go the better of dad.

Kier and Sweep placed 23rd while Milt and Josie came in 28th.  Milt also placed 38th with his world championship dog Finn.

The World Stock Dog Championship is a two-day event that wraps up today.
