Why the Border Collie is one of the best shepherd dogs

19 Aug

First of all, the Border Collie is a very-very clever dog! It is one of the most trainable breeds. It makes a great bomb detection dog (Which for me has no use, but who knows right?):) It also LOVES to play Frisbee, Flyball, or do tricks, and she/he can be well taught to do police work, or searching, but it’s also great for rescuing! That’s a lot of stuff huh?

Well… I’m sorry to say, but these were all positive information, and now it’s time for some negative too: believe it or not, the Border Collie is actually a pretty nervous dog, which was really surprising for me, when I first heard it, but it’s true! It’s not that big, it’s like 46-56 cm tall, and despite of it’s height, it’s really energetic, and needs lots of space, so again I’m gonna have to warn you, that it’s not a wise choice taking it into a small houses.

I suggest, for you to either take it to a professional dog-school, where they make the best shepherd dog out of just a Border Collie, or do playful exercises with it at home like: 1. throwing it balls, and she’ll/he’ll bring it back 2. running 3. swimming…

In my opinion, this is a great dog, and you should definitely get one, of course not into a small house, because that is why it became a nervous dog: It is small, and because of that, people thought that wherever it goes, it can’t be too small for a dog like this, so everyone did that, and it became a nervous dog. (Which most of the people still don’t realize):(

So I guess I told you everything I know about this dog, there is one more thing to do…

Please send me a comment, of your opinion! Thanks! 😀

Here are some pictures of one of the most adorable dog in the world! Enjoy! 😀
