The Border Collie is a medium sized dog breed which was bred in early Britain to help herd sheep. The breed is extremely intelligent and has a strong working drive which makes the breed easy to train and highly skilled in many agility sports.
Border collies have high energy and stamina with a workaholic attitude. They need both mental and physical tasks to keep them occupied, so if you're looking for companion to relax on the couch this is not the breed. Because of this the breed is recommended for active owners and is ideal for anyone interested in agility sports such as frisbee throwing and agility courses.
