About this Breed

The Old English Sheepdog is a remarkable breed that comes with a lot of energy and a even more hair. These guys originated in western England during the 19th Century. They make great herding dogs and with that comes their boundless energy. Old English Sheepdogs do best in a large space where they can run to their heart’s content. With their fluffy coat, these dogs require a heavy amount of weekly grooming. This is a playful breed that can make wonderful companions, especially in family settings. They must be trained from a young age to respect children and not try to herd or nip them though.
