What dog breeds are in the herding group?

The Herding Group

The newest of the AKC dog breed classification, created in 1983, denotes dog breeds which have the ability to control or herd other animals, namely cows and sheep.

Dogs of this group are highly intelligent and require much stimulation in a non-working environment. Many people use Herding dogs in agility courses.

At home, these dogs are known to herd their human counterparts, which can be quite amusing. Some breeds included in this group are the Corgi, the Australian Cattle Dog, and the Border Collie.
