History of the Dutch Shepherd

The dog is a dog breed being considered by the AKC for inclusion as a registered breed. The following article describes the breed.

have been distinguished from the other varieties of working line shepherds in a relatively short period of time, a little over a hundred years. Originally used by human shepherds to herd, guard and defend flocks of sheep on the flat fields of Holland, they were prized for their workability and guard drive.

The late nineteenth century brought a reduction in the amount of sheep herds in Holland and therefore a loss of work for shepherds and their alike. Interest started to develop in owning and showing these highly intelligent and the ( Dog Club) was formed as a result. Early members included founders of the K.N.P.V.

Attention started to be paid toward creating standards for the breed, including color, coat length, bone density and size. Formal breeding practices evolved to produce dogs that met the criteria. “Undesirable” traits, especially pertaining to coloration, were bred out as much as possible. As a result, became more common in appearance. 

Traits that have always been a part of the Dutch Shepherds' genetic makeup include a high degree of intelligence, adaptability, courage and natural born guard drive. With the proper training foundation, they make excellent protection dogs. In fact, one of my clients insists that her Dutch Shepherds are better protectors than her human bodyguards.  Also great with children, they love to socialize and especially exercise with their handler. 

Versatile, beautiful and most of all protective, Dutch Shepherds have proven themselves to be among the best of the working line shepherds.
