Some sites and people place the German Shepherd breed in the herding group, others place the German Shepherd breed in the working group. So which one is it Herding or Working?
GSD's are one of the herding breeds. And some of them at least are fanatical about herding even though many of them may not have even seen a sheep or other herd animal for some generations.Working
Herding is hard work but it is not all they can do. They aren't as fanatical herders as the herding breeds, they are simply well-rounded and intelligent and capable of many types of work ....... like herding f'rinstance.
