SHEEP HERDING LINKS
The Border Collie, is the most popular herding dog. They run fast and wide to gather large groups, and creep up slowly so as not to "spook" the sheep.

This style of herding is generally referred to as "fetching" or "gathering", because the dogs primary function is to fetch sheep to the shepherd.
