Border Collie Characteristics
The Border Collie is a medium-sized herding dog, standing between 18-22 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 30-45 pounds. They come in a variety of colors including blue and red merle and are equipped with a thick double coat which helps keep them warm through the Scottish winters. These dogs are heavy shedders, so plan to frequently groom and brush your pup in order to keep stray hair at bay.
As previously mentioned, the Border Collie is a breed with almost unlimited energy and is an excellent match for highly active individuals and families. While they love snuggling on a couch, they need to get their energy out first! These dogs are accustomed to running dozens of miles a day while herding sheep, so they make great companions for runners, hikers, and athletes. Even a big backyard and a ball or stick can help your Border Collie get some of the zoomies out.
With their high intelligence and alertness, Border Collies are always a top contender in canine performance sports. Their excess of energy and extreme trainability are traits that allow them to excel at agility, advanced obedience, flyball, flying disc, tracking, or freestyle obedience.
Training your Border Collie frequently for performance sports is one of the few sure-fire ways to ensure they are having their exercise needs met and are being mentally stimulated. They love having a sense of purpose and a way to make their owners pleased.
