Universally recognised as the smartest dogs in the world, the Border Collie has been helping humans for centuries – and continues to do so, both on and off the farm.
An energetic, active training home, where these dogs can use their brilliant brains. From herding and sniffer dog work, to mastering all the dog sports, this dog is a whiz. If they could hold a pen, they'd probably complete the sudoku for you too!
Those who like to be alone. Collies follow their people everywhere, like enthusiastic shadows.
Big, but will still fit in a small car.
High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Jacket and skinny trousers
Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
