The Belgian Shepherd is a true working dog. Developed in Belgium in the late 1800's, this breed is highly intelligent and excels at activities like obedience, search and rescue, herding and tracking. Belgian Shepherds are strong, sensitive and active, and make great watchdogs as they tend to be protective of their loved ones. They thrive when given plenty of exercise and a job to do.

A working dog through and through, the Belgian Malinois is energetic, intelligent, and very trainable. “Mals,” as they are sometimes known, excel at obedience, herding and tracking, and are often used for police and military work. Mals are very people-oriented, love to be with their owners, and do well with children, too. These proud, loving dogs tend to be protective of their families and make great watchdogs.
The Collie was developed centuries ago to be a herder, watchdog, and companion. Made famous by “Lassie,” a fictional Collie popular in the 1950s, this breed is well-loved as both a working dog and as a pet. Collies come in two varieties – rough coat and smooth coat – but are recognized by their distinctive flopped-over ears, thick hair and long face. These proud dogs are friendly, excellent with children, and are very intelligent and trainable.
