The goal of this website is to provide an introduction to the English Shepherd breed, to share information on dogs from Shepherd's Way, and to provide resources for people who share my interest in these dogs. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, comments, or your own English Shepherd stories to share!

English Shepherd history is rich and fascinating. Sharing this history as chronicled in magazine articles, stories, and photos can help secure breed traditions and heritage for future generations.
English Shepherds are "old style" dogs, in the tradition of the working farm collies that all but disappeared following WWII:
"...he was a great dog in the old style, calm, eager to work but happy to lie on the front step between times. They were never able to replace him after he died."
- Quote from Library of Congress
To help ensure English Shepherd owners never encounter this predicament, please support the English Shepherd Club!
English Shepherd breeders are themselves a rare breed and in need of support. The information below is one attempt to make their job easier. Let me know if you have links or information I should include!
