Question My female herds!!

I dont know what that is about. She heards my male dog all the time. Hes 10 and pretty much just sits down and growls at her as she pushes him. Nipping at this heels at times to get him to go into his kennel. She's purebred ckc registered. Im wondering if anyone else's dogs do this.

Her parents looked like this.

I think my boy keeps trying to herd me too, he circles me as I walk etc.....i'm not really an expert on this specific subject, so I'll wait until someone more experienced chips in and heed any advice they might give

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.

Yes, we got that, I think they were just looking for others whose gsds display strong herding behavior, but maybe not, who knows......

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.

Skadi used to be a shoe nipper. I think she was trying to herd us. She recently stopped. Grim circles me on walks.

Our eight-month-old female herded our beagle mix every time we went for a walk together. I found the behavior strongest at three points of the walk: going out the door, the point where we made the turn to head back to the house, and going back in the door. 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.

Yikes, that's why I keep my dog leashed around my horses I know a GSD who had it's jaw broken and a bunch of teeth smashed out from getting kicked by a horse after being allowed to chase them. That was a $3000 vet bill
