Herding Dogs Breed Group

Herding Dogs Breed GroupHerding are strong, intelligent and vigilant dogs, good at safeguarding and controlling the movement of groups and crowds, animals or people through jumping and squeezing at their heels. Originally, they were created to protect sheep and other animals, being members of the Working Group. By character, they love gathering all the family in one place, allowing them to have an eye on them easily – making them perfect watchdogs of people and properties.

When dealing with a Herding, people must keep in mind that these dogs are very protective – so there is a great possibility to get a bump or bite from them.

A typical Herding dog is 1 foot tall at the shoulders. Herding dogs are typically household dogs – great companions that easily learn to pay attention to the owner, its family and kids.
