Is This The World’s Smartest Dog Breed?

The Border Collie not only has the ability to heard sheep, they are very focused, they love to work hard, and have even been trained to do chores around the house or farm.   This breed of dog is also known for loyalty and a strong desire to please their owner.

The experts say the person best paired with a Border Collie is a clever owner who can keep the dog busy.  They love to be outside playing flying disc games, but when bored they can wreak havoc.   Expecting a Border Collie to spend days in the backyard and evenings keeping you company while you watch TV is a sure way to create a barking, bored destructive dog instead of a calm, well-behaved, loyal companion.

Borders are also very people-oriented and excellent family dogs.  They form tight bonds with their family and want to be with them every second they can.  These dogs are not always good with other dogs or cats.  They average 30 to 40 pounds, are 18 to 22 inches at the shoulder, and live from 12 to 16 years.  And like choosing any bread, please go with a licensed breeder or ever better yet get your dog from a shelter or rescue.
