sheepandakom Posted December 21, 2008 Report Share Posted December 21, 2008 I have had several people in the last week tell me that their herding breed (Border Collie, Corgi, German Shepherd) has a lot of "herding instinct" because it "herds" cats, kids, other dogs, etc... It really drives me crazy, and so far, I have always kept my mouth shut. The person with the Corgi lives near me and thought it would be a good idea to bring her dog out to see my sheep. I dodged that one by politely telling her that Corgis work a lot differently than Border Collies and my sheep weren't suitable for other kinds of dogs. Are there any semi-nice responses for people that seem to think their dog would be excellent on sheep because it circles and stares at other living things? I want to set them straight but wonder if I should just keep quiet. Emily Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
