Mesmerizing Drone Footage Shows Herding Dogs in Action

Prepare to be hypnotized!

This incredible drone footage of herding dogs moving a flock of sheep from one paddock to another is positively mesmerizing. Not only are the dogs amazing, but the scenery's not so bad either.

It looks almost like one of those annoyingly hypnotic screensavers, except this footage isn't computer-generated. It's as real as it gets. Real dogs doing real work herding sheep.

Watch as these superstar herding dogs, filmed by aerial photographer Tim Whittaker, deftly handle their flock like it's just another day at the office:

Watching a working dog on the job is pretty special, and these talented herders are no exception. Aren't they spectacular?
