Group One –

Shepherd Dogs / Herding Dogs

Some shepherds / herders fulfilled many jobs, serving as guardians, herders, drovers or even hunting dogs.  Examples of these multi-tasking dogs include the German Shepherd Dogs, Bouviers des Flandres, Briards and Old English Sheepdogs.

This group of dogs was needed all over the world, where people raised livestock.  Many breeds developed separately as a result of the region where they lived.

Small Shetland Sheepdogs were perfect for herding the miniature sheep and horses found in the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland.  Australian Cattle dogs could withstand the heat of the outback and still surviving the long stock drives.

Shepherds depended on the dogs to guard their flocks against predators, keep them together and when the time came, drive them to market.

Each breed has its own way of keeping sheep and other types of livestock in tightly packed herds.  The Border Collie, for example, uses his hypnotic stare.  Others use loud, stern barks.  Almost all use that characteristic nipping at the heels to make their charges obey them.
