Herding Dogs

The Herding Group was part of the Working Group until 1983. Dogs such as the sheep dogs and cattle dogs comprise, for the most part, the herding dogs group.

All breeds in this group have the ability and inborn drive to control the movement of other animals – even the one-foot-tall Corgi that can drive a herd of cows, many times its size, to pasture by leaping and nipping at their heels. Some herding dogs herd by circling while some others are “heelers”.

These dogs are an intelligent and active breed. Usually, good natured and affectionate, they are attentive, animated, well built, muscular, with stamina to work all day, yet agile. They come with an even disposition and are seldom quarrelsome.

To do their work, these dogs require daily exercise to maintain fitness and good muscle tone. They also require regular brushing to minimize shedding.

Most Herding dogs make excellent companion dogs or family pets who may never have the opportunity to use their instincts to herd farm animals. However, their instincts prompt them to gently herd their owners, especially the children of the family.

They are gentle and patient with young children and relentless in keeping them within the boundaries of their yard. They are tolerant to all the comings and goings of a family of growing children.

The Herding dogs respond beautifully to training. Most make excellent watchdogs because they announce everyone's arrival and are very possessive of their family members.
