Default Herding?

I have long wondered this.. because in the FCI the CSV is classified under the Sheepdogs and Cattle Dogs category.. are there herding CSVs? I know that in the FCI they have no working trial, but I'd be interested to know what style of herding the CSV employs when compared to the specified herding techniques of, say, ACDs or Aussies? I'd say based on some CSV pictures I've seen, that they'd be pretty good at giving sheep "the eye"!

An Aussie giving sheep the famous Aussie 'eye':

Hi Jing,

mind you, they're definitely giving sheep their famous Czechoslovakian teeth...

Cheers,
Michael

Really nice video, but unfortunately this is in no way herding as a proper sheepdog would do it.
I would like to see a wolfdog herding scattered sheep on an open pasture without that extremely tight controlling as seen in this clip.
And the sheep seen here are not controlled by the dog they're paying attention to what the people do, most of the time the dog doesn't seem to know what he's supposed to do.
But nevertheless a nice clip.

Michael

Thanks for the videos! I agree with Michael, though.. it seems that these dogs are taking 'herding' as a obedience (OB) test! Good to know they don't find sheep very yummy, though.
