Border Collie Facts

Collies are bred for intelligence, not looks,
so their coats come in many colors Collies are so smart they can: understand
math, understand advanced vocabulary, and perform elaborate tricks
They are built like cats! Their shoulder blades allow them to move swiftly when crouched
A collie uses an intense stare to control herds
Collies are workaholics and can be destructive if not kept busy
“Are Border Collies for me? – They can be aggressive if they don’t have
an outlet for their energy – They do shed but are easy to care for
– They are medium-sized – They are best suited to a rural environment”
“Are Border Collies for me? – They are good with families if trained and
exercised – They can be hyper with lots of energy
– They live to be 10-14 years old”

    Ours has a tendency to go into the Collie stalk walk and tries to "hypnotise" small fluffy breeds of dog (the little ones that look like little sheep), it's quite amusing. 😀

    Collie is not the Scottish Gaelic word for useful and furthermore the breed is from the anglo-scottish borderlands where Gaelic has never been spoken.

  8. Delilah says:

    I have a border-Aussie girl who is tiny – 20lbs and 16” high, the runt of the litter. We got her from a rural farmer and moved her to NYC. She has the border collie brains. We only need to show her a trick once or twice and its done! She is perfectly happy to sit under my feet for half the day, chew bones and play fetch. She attempted to herd our daughter and her friends while she was a puppy but that was easy to break. She is very sensitive and emotional and can tell what you’re thinking by looking at you. I personally dont think she us part Aussie, but probably some type of greyhound. She is literally the greatest dog I’ve ever had. So easy to housebreak, train, crate train and very quiet and sweet.

  19. Grace Ison says:

    That life expectancy range given in this video is rather short. 15 – 18 years is more the norm unless you are adding into consideration bad breeding, a lifetime of a poor diet, diseases, and accidents. I’ve owned 8 Border Collies and have 2 with me now. Only one died young at the age of 13 due to cancer. I have also fostered and rehomed 67 Border Collies.

  55. Gina L.F. says:

    Well, I had no choice on getting my border collie. She was a homeless abandoned pup when I found her on the streets. She is now 7 years old and often times still plays like she did when she was a pup. I love her so much. She is my world and my joy in life 💗

  86. Yuriy Umanskiy says:

    The Border collie breed of dog is very good for those who understand them, but not for old people over 70. My wife and I cannot satisfy Oliver’s instincts (10 months) and provide the necessary level of energy, therefore sometimes he becomes aggressive, barks a lot, not seeing proper response to his demands and energy. In addition, we cannot quickly follow him, although he is really a very smart dog, he understands commands in English and Russian, he can distinguish the shapes of objects, and even colors. Now, he is super hyper ( I don’t know how about future). My dog sometimes can jump, try knock people over or bark. I agree that Border Collies are great family pets to have but you will have to keep up with their energy levels for a long time.

    But still, we want to re-home the place of residence for him in order to meet the necessary requirements that this breed of dog makes and agree to consider any offers.

  95. Grant Bratrud says:

    My Border Collie, Caleb, of blessed memory, when the Soviet Union fell, saw an opportunity. I'd told him, in breaks from working our Clun Forest sheep, about the NaZis (National Socialists) stealing works of art in the lands they'd conquered in WW II, and, when FDR let Soviet troops into Europe by stalling the Allied advance (can you say 'Alger Hiss'?), The Soviets (International Socialists) stole the art from the NaZi thieves. Caleb must've seen this coming, the way a star goalie sees the streaming of the puck coming at the net off the blade of the stick, b/c he'd been pressuring me to teach him Russian since the modern advent of гла́сность. I'd taught him what I could, but I'm not an art historian, so I bought him a Russian grammar in English, and a good Russian-English dictionary, a compendious one, and he did the rest. With the Fall of the Wall (the Berlin Wall kept people enslaved. It did not, keep out a Free People from a Free People), I managed to get him a passport, and then a VISA. I won't tell you how, but, yes, it did involve sexual favors on my part, and some of it was, frankly, unpleasant. (The costs we bear for scholarship.) Caleb wanted that M.F.A. degree, and not a Ph.D., and he'd found the right program (hint: it wasn't at Wesleyan nor Occidental), and he earned it. His dissertation did a sort of "Gravity's Rainbow" treatment of which masterwerks wound up in captivity, and which didn't, and suggested a unifying quality, and moreover a means of discovery a priori. Read it. Srsly one of the best treatments of the Philosophy of Aesthetics, and very understanding of how we humans (and this is the dog talking now) make critical choices despite the inevitable dearth of diagnostic evidence.
    Dog is our copilot.
