If you enquired recently about becoming an English Shepherd owner and haven't heard anything for a while, please get in touch again by contacting jackie.graves@englishshepherd.co.uk as we're rebuilding our mailing list.

We are a passionate, dog-loving community and we’d like to tell you about our fantastic dogs who are English Shepherds.

Have you ever wished for a dog that was a little more mellow in temperament than a Border Collie – one that shared the same intelligence and drive without the obsessive nature? If so, the English Shepherd, a strong and versatile farm dog, renowned for both their loyalty and versatility might just be the dog for you.

Our English Shepherds excel in dog sports such as flyball and agility as well as making superb working dogs, indeed there are English Shepherds in the UK working as search and rescue and police support dogs.
