The speed , enthusiasm and efficiency with which his dog , a beautiful specimen of border collie , leads the flock are impressive. So much so that the shepherd , amused and surprised by the scene, decided to film his trusted assistant grappling with about thirty sheep .

The skilled assistant follows them, never losing sight of them. He jumps a fence to overtake them – with surprising agility – and keeps them together so as not to lose one. The scene should be set in England, where this dog is used extensively in pasture work.

The man follows the scene from his motorbike and leaves the reins of the situation to his furry collaborator. This dog breed is also widely used in Italy, especially in Upper Piedmont, where it works in synergy with defense dogs that protect flocks from attack by wolves and other carnivorous predators.
