Border Collie

The Border Collie thrives on company, is devote and dedicated to his master, responds eagerly to training, works instinctively and is undoubtedly a highly intelligent breed.

Capable of thinking for himself, the Border Collie has been employed in mountain rescue, tracking and as a sniffer dog as well as in his more traditional flock working role. He regularly needs considerable amounts of both mental and physical exercise, the Border Collie is not a fireside dog.

Athletic, acrobatic and energetic, Border Collies can become demanding, destructive and difficult without sufficient daily stimulation. Centuries of selective breeding have hard-wired a strong herding instinct into this breed, consequently an under-occupied, un-trained dog may turn his herding attentions to inappropriate subjects, such as young children, other pets and almost anything else that moves.
