Old English Sheepdog
The breed standards describe the ideal Old English Sheepdog as never being nervous or aggressive.
The New Zealand Kennel Club adds that "they are sometimes couch potatoes" and "may even try to
herd children by gently bumping them." This breed's temperament can be described as intelligent,
social and adaptable. The American Kennel Club adds that the breed has "a clownish energy" and
"may try to herd people or other objects."

With wide open spaces being the ideal setting for an Old English Sheepdog, the breed is a natural fit in
a rural setting, such as working on a farm; although they are perfectly comfortable with a suburban or
urban lifestyle (with proper exercise). Their remarkable, inherent herding instincts, sense of duty, and
sense of property boundaries may be nurtured and encouraged accordingly, or subdued by their
owners. Old English Sheepdogs should not be deprived of the company and the warmth of people.
OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG
Sporting a mop of uncombed hair and his
namesake "bobtail," the Old English Sheepdog
ranks high on everyone’s list of most recognizable
and lovable shaggy dogs. Under these famous
strands stands a working droving dog of
exceptional skill and talent, and more than a dollop
of personality. The Old English Sheepdog, prized
as a family dog of boundless affection and energy,
warms the hearts of owners around the world.

Written by breed authority and breeder-judge Ann
Arch, this new book provides an insightful look at
the history and characteristics of the Old English
Sheepdog as well as the breed standard. The
author provides everything an owner needs to
know about puppy selection and care, feeding,
grooming, obedience training and health care and
maintenance. New owners will welcome the author’s
advice about housebreaking, puppy-proofing the
home and preventing puppy problems. In addition
to an authoritative, comprehensive text, this book
presents over 135 photographs in full color, which
prove to be as informative as they are attractive.
