The Collie is a widely recognized breed due to its iconic majestic coat and fame as the dog "Lassie" in the famous TV show bearing the same name. Always light on its feet, the Collie is a graceful and effective herding dog as well as a fantastic family companion when properly trained and socialized.
The Collie was originally bred in Scotland, primarily in the highland regions. Effectively used as a herding partner, the Collie is fast and elegant. Standing around 22-26 inches and weighing between 50-70 pounds, the breed often looks much larger due to its puffy coat, which can be seen in tri-color and blue merle along with others in the "rough" or "smooth" variety. Unsurprisingly, the breed is a top shedder, and regular grooming and frequent brushing are encouraged to keep hair contained around the house.
Fame from the 50s TV show "Lassie" launched this breed into popularity, and though it's lost favor to some smaller, newer breeds, the Collie makes a fantastic all-around companion. These dogs are eager to please and love socializing with everyone in the family, including children. They are considered very easy to train and develop a strong loyalty to their humans, so some early socialization and obedience training will go a long way.
Collies, like many herding dogs, have an abundance of energy and a strong desire for purpose. Unless you live on a farm and provide them with sheep to herd, teaching your Collie some tricks or training them for canine performance sports will provide them the mental stimulation and aerobic exercise they crave. Many herding dogs are prone to act out and become destructive if not given a purpose or adequate exercise, and Collies are no exception. But with shared activities and space to play, Collies will thrive with their families.
How dog-friendly is Wyoming?
Wyoming is an amazing state for pet-friendly travel destinations, though it has some room to grow for dog owners living in the state. Let’s break down some studies to understand why.
Two major studies rank all 50 states by their pet friendliness, analyzing factors like animal welfare laws, pet care and services, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
The first study, by an animal care group called Pawsafe, ranked Wyoming as the 44th most pet-friendly state. The second study, conducted by a consumer safety review site, ranked Wyoming 46th. In both studies, the major factor for this low ranking was Wyoming’s lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
