Sheep dogs

Sheep dogs

Shepherd dogs are utility dogs for guarding and driving animal herds (cattle, sheep). They are all related to fighting dogs and resemble the lighter Tibetan Great Dane, they are all more or less alike. Their service once consisted of guarding herds of animals and defending themselves against wolves, bears and thieves, possibly to tame aggressive bulls and to help drive animals to the market or slaughterhouse (sometimes over long distances). Rather, they were guard dogs.

Sheep dogs were helpers of the sheepdogs. They guarded the farmland against the pigs or sheep entrusted to them, chased the herds from place to place. They were otherwise perfect, vigilant guardians of the farmyard, as well as keepers of turkey herds and chicken farms against pests - foxes, than me, and even birds of prey hunting chicks.

For hundreds of generations, these dogs have helped humans pasture herds, mainly sheep and under this cooperation they underwent a strict selection. Shepherd was not allowed to use indifferent and disobedient dogs. Sheep dogs captivate with their submissiveness and zealous obeying orders, they are good keepers, as well as brave defenders, though their courage is not as great as that of the fighting dogs. Moreover, they feel more confident in the presence of their guide or their pack companions. They are rather cautious in the face of danger themselves. Thanks to that, that they are easy to train, quick-witted and intelligent, They have gained countless fans and perhaps no type of dog breed is as popular as sheepdogs.
