Overview
A very adaptable breed, this dog is friendly, intelligent, and gentle. Herding instincts are present in this breed, but is a regular couch potato. Making a great family companion, this breed is friendly and his endearing personality will be sure to steal your hearts. Can be protective of their territory and family, but is rarely used as a watchdog, or guard dog as the Old English Sheepdog is very affectionate.
Character
Even-tempered and faithful, the Old English Sheepdog has quite a presence about him. Excellent in a family environment, this breed does regularly bump, or sometimes push trying to herd the family. This trait can be trained out of this breed, however it is usually harmless. Great child's companion, and a wonderful teddy bear like appearance.
Temperament
An intelligent breed displaying no signs of aggression or shyness, the Old English Sheepdog is ideal for the home life. With an even disposition, this breed does very well in a herding or working environment. Natural herding instincts are present and would do exceptionally well in country life. Protective and sweet makes this the perfect household companion, and protector of family.
Care
Coat of this breed must be brushed down to the undercoat to prevent tangles or matting. Brushing and combing regularly will keep the coat soft and tangle free. The Old English Sheepdog is a heavy shedder during warmer seasons which makes clipping this breed ideal if not being used for show. Trimming is necessary.
Coat
The Old English Sheepdog has a rather long double coat. Outer coat should be coarse and harsh, sometimes wiry, while the undercoat should be soft, downy and wavy. Coat should be fluffy, yet not too, giving the dog the appearance of being overweight.
Training
The Old English Sheepdog does wonderfully in herding, and is rather intelligent. This sheepdog requires a firm handler as they can be strong willed and stubborn. A variety of training methods is recommended as this breed tends to do things the way he sees fit. A range of training techniques will keep him interested and alert.
Activity
The Old English Sheepdog does best with a medium sized yard, however if given regular opportunities to exercise, no yard would be fine. This breed loves a long brisk walk, or a nice run as they were originally bred for working. Proper water must always be available as this breed has a long coat and can become heated quickly.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Olde English Sheepdog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

aggressive If a sheep dog is very aggressive with food and over a year slightly, can it change to be a good dog?

Food aggression/possession is learned either by the dogs mother or because of a mistake a human did while handling the food when the dog was young. It can be changed though. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer and he/she will be able to help you.

No. The Olde English Sheepdog is not a 'hypoallergenic' breed of dog. Although, some people are allergic to some breeds of dogs, while other's have no affect on them. The best thing to do is to find said breed and hang out with it.

After the puppy coat has shed

A sheepdogs coat changes gradually. Generally by 9 months old the coat has fully turned to its light gray. I have 2 OES's and the girl's fur has went from a light gray back to a a dark gray. I think it will vary throughout the life of the dog.

The only problem I ever had with my Olde English Sheepdog was she developed hip dysplasia when she was about 10 years old. Other than that, healthy as a horse.

The common health problems are:hip dysplasia and that's it. Make sure the fur is out of their eyes, too.

DO NOT feed your dog commercial dog food! It is absolutely horrible for them and makes them live a shorter life.
