The Truth About Border Collies

BORDERCOLLIES2The Border Collie is a very energetic dog that loves to play with his dog toys and work. It’s body is slightly longer than it’s tail. This dog is very intelligent and very aware of it’s surroundings. This is one of the hardest working dogs who thrives on praise from it’s owners. They are among the leaders in most of the competitive sports that they perform. Farmers love them because they were originally bred as a farm hand. They need ample exercise and long walks on a strong dog leash. The Border Collie will get along with children and other dogs however, they can show some aggression towards other dogs of the same sex if you are not giving them 100% leadership. They should not be trusted with small non – canine pets. Many Border Collies will get along well with family cats. This breed should be very well socialized as a puppy. To keep them totally happy, they need consistent leadership, extensive exercise and some kind of job to occupy their minds. If you allow them to take over without enough socialization and both mental and physical exercise, they can be very reactive and sound sensitive making them a poor choice with families with children. This breed lives for serving you all the time. If you are not going to be dedicated in making sure they get lots of physical and mental exercise then I would not recommend adopting one. They are not your typical “sit at home” dog. Make sure you train him properly…..and don’t forget the dog treats every once in awhile!
