Description

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.

Contributor Notes

David Hancock has studied dogs for more than half a century in more than 20 countries.  He is the author of 12 previous books on dogs, including GundogsSighthounds, and Sporting Terriers, and more than 750 articles publishing in national and international magazines. In 2009 he won the annual award of the Dog Writers' Association of America.

Editorial Review

“... an arresting and valuable mosaic of a historically prominent dog-group corridor that is tackled with an adventurous spirit and tough realism. Hancock’s candidness makes it a must read for any fan of pastoral or herding breeds.”  – Seattledogshow.org
