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.

Does your Olde English Sheepdog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Olde English Sheepdog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

They don't shed at all! Get ready to pay that groomer, $80 every time mine goes in.

Olde English Sheepdogs do shed, especially in the fall.

I own two Olde English Sheepdogs and, believe me, they do shed! They require regular grooming, at least once or twice a week to keep them from matting.

Anonymous

They shed about as much as a person because they have hair not fur like most dogs. Regular brushing will remove any loose hair. They don't shed anywhere near as much as a German Shepherd or Golden Retriever.

If a 1-year-old Olde English Sheepdog is very aggressive with food, 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 others have no effect on them. The best thing to do is to find said breed and hang out with it.
