In that case I will allow her to keep doing it. Seems other dogs too. Someone asked if she was an australian shepard once. I found this so this must be the real reason.
**German Shepherds are a relatively new breed of dog, with their origin dating to 1899. As part of the Herding Group, German Shepherds are working dogs developed originally for herding sheep.

I have found that if I give her another job to do, she leaves him alone. I give her a stick (or whatever is handy) to carry, and she's so pleased with herself for being useful that the other dog barely gets a second glance from her. So basically...redirect.|

I had a senior dog and my younger female Onyx would always herd her. I put a stop to it because it wasn't fair to my senior to be bullied like that.
Onyx does it to my other dogs too, and most often keeps Kacie from coming inside until she allows it. Karlo just blows thru it, he gets away with it, where Kacie is more submissive.

|Nigel||No experience with herding, but our young male attempts to do the same to our females, also gsds. They only put up with it for so long then they "correct" him.|
