The English word "Boder (border)" in "Border Collie" refers to the breed's origins on the borders of England and Scotland. In 1873, the first sheepdog trials were held in Britain to test a variety of sheepdogs with different behavioral and physical characteristics. One participant, Hemp, impressed everyone with his ability to handle sheep through his intense gaze rather than constant barking. Hemp then sired many puppies, becoming the father of the modern Border Collie. In 1906, the first standard for Border Collies was written, which emphasized behavioral abilities rather than appearance. Border Collies were brought to America in the 250th century, where they became popular working dogs and pets. Their speed and endurance make them top competitors in dog sports such as Flyball and Frisbee. Famous Border Collies include the main character from "Nop's Trials" and Rico, a Border Collie trained to identify more than XNUMX objects by name.
The Border Collie has a shoulder height of 46 to 56 cm (18 to 22 in) and weighs 12 to 20 kg (27 to 45 lbs). It is a fast, powerful, medium-sized breed with dark brown or blue eyes (blackbirds only), erect ears and an arched back. Border Collies have low tails, oval feet, and a scissor bite. They have a broad skull and a visible stopper (where the forehead and muzzle meet).
The Border Collie can have any coat color, including plain, two-tone, tricolor, merle (lighter coat with speckled spots) or sable (light undercoat with black-tipped hair), but the white should not predominate. The most common color combination is black with white markings. The undercoat is thick, of medium length and shiny. Border Collies shed moderately.
Intelligent, determined and courageous, the Border Collie forms a close bond with his family and is also eager to work (or play). Border Collies are exceptionally energetic, loving, and personable. They may be our favorite breed (shhh! - we all love puppies the same).
The Border Collie gets along very well with other animals and children, as long as they have plenty of activity to keep them busy. He can get along more easily with dogs of the opposite sex. Border Collies need to be socialized with small, non-canine pets when they are young to overcome the prey instinct. They can bite especially in adolescence.
The Border Collie should have their coat brushed and combed weekly, but more often when molting. Bathe it only when necessary. Border Collies can live outdoors in cool or warm climates, provided they are adequately accompanied. They will become destructive if ignored or under-exercised, especially if left alone for long periods of time. They have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years and litters of 5 to 7 young.
The Border Collie's enormous intelligence and desire to please make training quite straightforward. Border Collies are sensitive and live for the praise of their master. They are very obedient and agile, able to learn a wide variety of tricks. They are eager to learn and play sports and games.
If he doesn't have a job to do, the Border Collie will behave badly. Having started out as a sheepdog and a cattle breeder, the Border Collie is very work-oriented and happiest when tasked with specific tasks on a regular basis. Border Collies especially like active sports such as Frisbee. They are not suitable for apartment living.
