Favorite Herding Dogs


Herding Breeds have been working and living with man for centuries. Most of these breeds are of superior intelligence and endurance. These breeds are somewhat different in their temperament and purpose, but all have made good family pets as well as working dogs on the farm. A tendency to guard the family is seen in these breeds when kept as a family pet, and can be attributed to their inbred herding and guarding instincts. Each of these breeds has a standard kept by the American Kennel Club, where breeds can be registered in the United States. Please click on the links to your left to find out more about each breed.
