About this Group

The Herding GroupPLEASE READ THE RULES BEFORE ENTERING YOUR WORK, CHECK THE BREED (refer to the list below) DOGS ONLY:

The Herding Group, created in 1983, is the newest AKC classification; its members were formerly members of the Working Group. All breeds share the fabulous ability to control the movement of other animals. A remarkable example is the low-set Corgi, perhaps one foot tall at the shoulders, that can drive a herd of cows many times its size to pasture by leaping and nipping at their heels. The vast majority of Herding dogs, as household pets, never cross paths with a farm animal. Nevertheless, pure instinct prompts many of these dogs to gently herd their owners, especially the children of the family. In general, these intelligent dogs make excellent companions and respond beautifully to training exercises.

The ACCEPTABLE breeds are as follows:
Australian Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd, Bearded Collie, Beauceron, Belgian Malinois, Belgian Sheepdog, Belgian Tervuren, Border Collie, Bouvier des Flandres, Briard, Canaan Dog, Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Collie, German Shepherd Dog, Icelandic Sheepdog, Norwegian Buhund, Old English Sheepdog, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Polish Lowland, Puli, Pyrenean Shepherd, Shetland Sheepdog and the Swedish Vallhund.

All mediums welcome. I will no longer accept doubles, triples of the same 'art'.. choose your best and submit JUST one. All 'copies' will be deleted. And if the breed does not fit the guidelines, it will be deleted without further notice.
