The Border Collie derives his name from the border between Scotland and England where these dogs first came to prominence, although the breed was very much developed in Australia.
One of the supreme sheepdogs of the world, the agile Border Collie has no peer as a working dog. He can run more than 80 km in a day, doing the work of several men.
Acknowledged star of the sheepdog trials, and a brilliant performer in the obedience ring, the Border Collie is never happier than when he is working. As befits a practical working sheepdog, the Border Collie is a healthy, hardy and active breed. Regular and extensive daily exercise, incorporating activities like ball chasing, is highly recommended. The get-up-and-go enthusiasm of this breed, along with its devotion to duty and desire to serve its master, have won it a loyal following but its energy levels may be too high for many owners. Unless its energy levels are met, it may become destructive and/or noisy. Due to its strong herding instinct, this breed should be supervised with children.
The Border Collie’s medium, weather-resistant coat is usually black and white, but black, white and tan, chocolate and white, blue and white plus red and white are also correct colourings.
