The Shepherd class's best skill is Whistle, which induces a battle any time the party is on the field. This is great for quickly leveling up class tiers and regular levels. The Wool Guard skill also protects the party from cold damage, good against monsters who use cold breath attacks like Gracos. Stampede works like Ruff's Howl attack
In terms of evolution, the Shepherd, when combined with the mastered Thief class, becomes a Tamer and learns all sorts of breath attacks. However, its main advantage is to tame monsters for the Monster Park. For battles, a Tamer is essential but for those just going through the game, there are better classes to become than a Tamer.
