Dogs of the Shepherds
Available in Stock
'Shepherds have used dogs for well over 2,000 years. Man has conducted dog shows for less than 200.' David Hancock's history and worldwide survey of the pastoral breeds makes the strongest case for respecting the functional origins of these dogs rather than exaggerating features for the show ring. He describes the form and function of the various types - flock guardians, herding dogs, heelers and drovers' dogs - along with photographs and prints of the dogs as they were and how they are today.
