    Dutch Shepherd Dog |Netherlands|

    Dutch Shepherd Dog |Netherlands|

    The Dutch Shepherd is a versatile and intelligent breed whose role has changed in line with changing farming practices. Originally the breed’s primary function was herding all types of farm livestock. They had to keep the large flocks of sheep away from the crop fields, protect the vegetable patches from the hens, and gather the cows at milking time. On market day, they drove the livestock to town, and when the farmer was away, they patrolled the farm, keeping watch. As farming decreased, the breed found new roles with the police, search and rescue, and as an assistance dog. The Dutch Shepherd has a lovely nature and makes a good companion dog.
