Originally bred to herd livestock, herding dogs are intelligent, easily trained companions. Breeds in the American Kennel Club Herding Group may be prompted by pure instinct to gently herd their owners, especially children.
Notable herding breeds are the Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Cardigan and Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Collie, German Shepherd Dog, Old English Sheepdog, and Shetland Sheepdog.
