A little over a decade ago, the AKC separated herding dogs from the working group. Breeds separated into this group were primarily bred to herd livestock, although protecting their master, his family and livestock has always been a part of their work. In ancient times, these dogs were brave animals that wore spiked collars to protect their throats from the attacks of wild animals. Today’s herding breeds are intelligent performance animals with the endurance to do their job regardless of environmental conditions.
