English Shepherd

This breed is a quick thinker and affectionate companion.


A Farmer’s Best-Kept Secret
He can herd livestock, hunt vermin, guard a flock, then rest languidly at his owner’s feet after a long day of work. An English Shepherd excels in his role as farm dog — a job he takes seriously, says Carmen S., a breeder who works her dogs on her 500-acre farm in Ohio.

“English Shepherds are very intelligent, easy to train, and they’re an all-around working dog,” she says. “They’re called the ‘farmer’s best secret’ because farmers wanted a dog that would play with and watch the children, guard the property, hunt vermin, work the livestock, and have a good on-and-off switch, but be the perfect companion. And they are.”

English Shepherds are very intelligent dogs. They are wonderful to be around. I am trying to convince my mom to let me get on.
