If you need an energetic pup to keep up with your active lifestyle, look no further than the Border Collie! Bred centuries ago for herding sheep in the punishing Scottish highlands, the border is a hard-working dog that wants to stay active and please you! One of the most recognizable breeds, this medium dog generally has a low-maintenance coat and comes in many color combinations; the most common, however, is black and white. This breed is known for his herding skills, and he will try to herd everything! You, your children, other animals, even robotic vacuums and lawnmowers! The border has a lot of energy and is incredibly intelligent. This makes it imperative that you plan on a lot of exercise every day. A bored collie is a destructive and unhappy collie.
Training is key for border collies, whether you plan to keep yours as a working dog or not. Any type of training you engage in should be a continuing process throughout the dog’s life; that way he will continue to be challenged and stimulated. Experts suggest agility training for non-working border collies, since it will test their stamina and intelligence in similar ways to herding. At the end of the day, your border will love snuggling up with you, knowing that he’s put in a good day of hard work.
This breed is typically very healthy but can have a few genetic health issues. Hip dysplasia is a common issue, as well as eye and allergy problems. Your puppy can be tested for genetic eye problems as early as 5-8 weeks old. Be sure to double check with your breeder about your puppy’s heritage and any health issues he may have been passed from his parents. Do not hesitate to ask your breeder lots of questions and ask for paperwork to prove all their claims.
