A comprehensive review of the pastoral dog breeds—those farmers' dogs that down the centuries have herded and guarded livestock all around the world

This is a book for all those who admire the most valuable of all the working dogs, the pastoral breeds: sheepdogs, cattle dogs, and flock protection dogs, the indispensable farmer's servants and companion dogs for thousands of proud dog owners across the globe. Painstakingly researched and packed with information, this book is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition, and dog care; it is very much a reflective review of the pastoral dogs' contribution to the working and companion dog scene. It is a searching examination of their past, their performance, and their prospects in an increasingly urban society.
