|I'm so glad there is a border collie section now!
Border Collies are extremely intelligent dogs. They catch on to things very quickly. If you don't want to be outsmarted by your dog once in a while, don't go for a border collie.
They require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. They thrive in dog sports such as agility, flyball, and obedience. Of course they commonly do stockwork.
They are usually very responsive and connected to their people.
BCs are definitely not for everyone.
They are very diverse. They can have a smooth coat, a long rough coat, or somewhere inbetween. They can have prick ears, semi-prick, drop, rose, or a combination. They can be black and white, liver and white, all white, sable, red merle, blue merle, tri color, and lots more colors and combinations. They can be as little as 25 pounds and as much as 60 pounds.
Border Collies are amazing. I love them.
