Border Collie

Herding Group

Border Collie

Originating in the border country between Scotland and England, the Border Collie was developed by the shepherds’ selection for biddable stock sense and the ability to work long days on rugged terrain. This created a breed with intensity, energy, agility and trainability, features that make an unsurpassed herding dog which also excels in obedience and agility competition. The Border Collie is a breed that desires to please yet may develop unacceptable behavior if not provided with activities that challenge its intelligence and use its energy.
