Herding Dog Breeds 2
A herding or pastoral dog is one that has either been trained in herding or is part of a breed that has been developed for herding. 
Often extremely intelligent and very active, herding dog breeds are a perfect match for a high energy family. 
And if you're not careful, you just might find yourself being corralled into a corner!
