In Europe during the 1800s, attempts were made to standardize dog breeds. Dog breeds were bred to have characteristics suitable for herding livestock, protecting them from predators. In Germany, this is practiced in many localities, where shepherd dogs are selected and produced for the breeding of puppies that are believed to have good characteristics necessary for herding, such as intelligence. smart, agile, strong, and good-natured. The result is a large number of dogs capable of performing very well, but differing greatly, both in appearance and in ability, from place to place.

To solve that problem, the Phylax Society was founded in 1891 with the criterion of setting standards for dog breeds bred in Germany. The association disbanded after only three years of operation, because of internal infighting over which criteria should be encouraged; with some members advocating to develop the dog breed only for work, while some other members think that the need for formality is also needed. Although it did not achieve its goals, the Phylax Association inspired some to pursue independent dog breed standardization.
