Pros & Cons of a Collie | Dog Breeds


I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “Living with Dogs” columnist for dogster.com. I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. Lassie is like the ultimate Collie. Lassie is probably still the most popular,
famous, dog star in the dog star constellation. The first Lassie movie was 1943, Lassie Come
Home, everybody knows this movie with Ronnie McDowell and Elizabeth Taylor. You know, it’s of course such a heartwarming
storing. The reality is that Lassies really are like
that. They’re incredibly hard working, they’re great
family dogs, they’re wonderful companions. It is a case of Hollywood glamorizing something,
but it’s not that far from the truth. Lassie was so famous that she had her own
star on the Hollywood walk of fame, it’s still there, and uh, and nobody really deserves
it more because the collie really is a showstopper and a dog with a lot of star quality. They’re very sensitive like all dogs are,
and, and they have lots of lifestyle needs; they want to be with you, and they want to
serve you, they want to have a job. Frequently around airports there have been
kind of a problem to do with geese flying, and so they become a menace to the pilots
and to air traffic control. What people very ingeniously have done, is
use their dogs to chase the geese away, and a lot of dogs have that phrase in which they
run after birds. So, that’s a perfect combination, and it’s
a perfect job for a dog who loves to chase after birds. It’s a win-win situation, the dog gets a job
and is tired out at the end of the day and doesn’t do destructive behaviors and there
aren’t any geese to endanger flights, so, it’s a wonderful thing.

  13. Jacqueline says:

    This whole thing makes NO sense. This is about Collies yet she starts and ends with other dogs. She only touches on the good things about Collies, and there are many, but there are drawbacks too, as with any dog. I've had Collies all my adult life and I am no spring chicken! Their tendency to heard people, especially children, annoys some people. They can suffer from genetic hip dysplasia–rare, seizures–becoming less rare, and blindness. Their coat takes a lot of time and money to maintain. But they are SO smart, sweet, and loving.

  14. kt1pl2 says:

    Everybody watching this is going to think collies look like pit bulls!

  15. Logicfrom Logic says:

    Lassie was actually a laddie.

  16. SuperWAZZZZZZUP says:

    I'm sure a rough collie doesn't look like a pitbull… It would've been nice to have shown some in the video, not just a picture or two.

  17. Graham Szewczyk says:

    there are no cons too having a collie…….period!!!!!

  18. Angry Applesauce says:

    This video is incompetent, and should be replaced with a video about the pros and cons or collies, or renamed "Video vaguely about collies"

  19. Mom Chaney says:

    Lassie has always been my favorite part of my Life Watching her in Action on TV Shows I Just Love her

  20. strawberryseason says:

    She's right about this — Collies DO have star quality compared to other dogs.

  21. Gabrielle Ash says:

    I’m 99.9% sure my collie looks NOTHING like a pit bull. I wonder why?
