Herding dog breeds developed in response to local situations and needs. In many cases, the work required versatility, while in other cases there were particular conditions that led to some specialization. Conditions could change over time. The Way They Work provides a view of many 

of the tasks of stock-working dogs.

Some of the herding breeds have pages galore, others have at most a mention in passing on a general list of dogs breeds. I have tried to include pages that provide information or the most direct links to pages with such information. If you know of a page which should be included on this list, or come across any broken links with regard to any of links set out below, please let me know.
