Canadian Kennel Club - Herding Breeds
Bred to control a variety of livestock, Herding dogs have been developed to be well suited for their special functions. Lowslung Corgis and Swedish Vallhunds work as "heelers," nipping at the heels of cattle to move them. Drovers, such as the Old English Sheepdog and Bouvier des Flandres, were employed to drive livestock to market. Briards and German Shepherd Dogs patrolled the boundaries of pastures to keep their charges contained, while breeds such as the Puli and Bearded Collie went in search of grazing sheep to round them up and bring them in.

Herding Dogs - Dogtime
The dogs in this category were developed to control large flocks of sheep or herds of cattle. They still retain that ability today, even though most of them never lay eyes on a Merino or Longhorn. Energetic, smart, and serious, they're big proponents of family togetherness and like nothing better than to see the whole family in the same room so they can keep an eye on them.
