Herding Group Summary

The herding group is the latest addition to the American Kennel Club’s list of breed classifications. Dogs in this group all share traits which allow them to control the movement of other animals. One example of this is the Corgi, which standing at only 12 inches can drive a herd of cows to pasture by leaping and nipping at their heels. A larger sized herding breed is the Australian Shepherd (pictured above) which grow up 20-23 inches and weigh as much as 60 pounds. As household pets, these breeds are known to gently herd their owners, especially the children of the family. These dogs are generally easy to train, intelligent, and make great companions.
