Isaacson Creek English Shepherds

About Us

Welcome to our website. We live in a very small community in southwest Ohio. After many years of raising our children and other pets, my husband and I decided to get an English Shepherd. We fell in love with this breed when a friend of ours introduced us to her two female black and tans. A few years later this friend got a black and white English Shepherd. We decided to search for an English Shepherd puppy. We are so glad we did. Now we want to share in our experience of these wonderful dogs.

You can find us on Facebook too. Lots of puppy pictures on my Facebook page!

What is an English Shepherd? 


HISTORY 

English Shepherds are descendants of the Shepherds' dogs of England and southern Scotland. This group also gave rise to modern "show" Collies and Border Collies. English Shepherds differ from their cousins in having been bred primarily for an upright, loose-eyed herding style, and by the continuous selection for all-around ability. These abilities include not only herding but also guarding and hunting. The surge in popularity of dog shows and sheepdog trials in the 20th century resulted in increased demand for the Collie types which these venues were designed to showcase. English Shepherds have never been primarily show dogs or trial dogs, but rather practical versatile workers for farmers who were interested in function rather than flash. 

 

HERDING 

English Shepherds are natural low heelers, with strong herding instinct. They exhibit agility, stamina, and stout hearted perseverance and will use the amount of force necessary to accomplish the job. Their natural instincts enable them to work with a minimum of direction, however, and they can be trusted to not bother livestock when help is not needed.

HUNTING 

English Shepherds are also valued for their tracking, hunting and treeing ability. Advertising brochures from the 1950s depict English Shepherds treeing squirrel, coon and possum, and note "English Shepherds will tree anything and everything." This may include, of course, your neighbor's cat! An industrious English Shepherd may not be satisfied with simply treeing critters -- he may decide to climb a tree or two himself! English Shepherd owners need to be aware of and make allowances for the many faceted drives their dogs inherit. 

AGILITY AND MORE 
With their blend of intelligence, athleticism, and trainability, English Shepherds excel at many of the newer dog sports. English Shepherds have succeeded at the highest levels of obedience and agility. They also make outstanding partners in Search and Rescue, and many English Shepherds are certified Therapy Dogs, visiting residents in nursing homes and hospitals. English Shepherds are truly all-purpose dogs, eager to work for their owners in a variety of settings.
