Croatian Sheepdogs originated in Croatian, they were first documented in the year 1374 by a veterinarian named Stjepan Romic'. In Croatia the winters are cool and rainy and the summers are hot and dry. In the earliest time Croatian Sheepdogs were first mentioned for being good for keeping flocks of all animals. In the beginning, Croatian Sheepdogs were used to herd sheep and cattle dogs. Croatian Sheepdogs have combined habits so they were used for herding livestock and used for guard dogs and companion dogs as well. Because, Croatian Sheepdogs are sensibly suspicious dogs they would make excellent watch dogs. Croatian Sheepdogs are medium sized dogs. They are compact, strong and agile which made them a great fit for the role of herding sheep and cattle for the humans.

Since Croatian Sheepdogs have been around since the 1300's, they probably ate what they hunted or whatever people would feed them such as table scraps in order to survive. Today, Croatian Sheepdogs are known to make great family companions. Croatian Sheepdogs are loyal to their masters. Croatian Sheepdogs are calm and relaxed when they are inside a home but as soon as they get outside they love to run and play. Croatian Sheepdogs are still very energetic dogs today. They are also quite extraordinary at jumping. Croatian Sheepdogs may not have to hunt for food like they had to in the past because their owners are able to feed them dog food. In modern culture, Croatian Sheepdogs may not require the same amount of food as they once did because they were more active when they were hunting then they are now as family pets.
