A highly active and extremely intelligent dog, the Border Collie was bred to gather and control sheep between Scotland and England. They have limitless stamina and energy and absolutely love to work. These traits can be difficult to handle for someone who doesn’t understand the Border Collie. They are not couch potatoes and prefer to have a job. Their unlimited energy can be overwhelming to a family who wants a laid-back dog. Their extreme intelligence makes them easily trainable. One trait about the Border Collie is that they seem to know what you want from them before you even ask. Early socialization will help with their instinct to herd young children or other pets. The Border Collie will shine in an active family.
