Old English sheepdogs are incredibly playful and rambunctious. Because they were originally bred to herd sheep and cattle, these types of dogs can have a tendency to attempt this behavior with people and objects. This breed of dog is affectionate and can make very good family dogs. They do require regular grooming to keep their long-haired coats from matting and becoming unmanageable.
