Overview
Originating during the 19th century, the Border Collie was so named due to their home of development on the border of Scotland England. This breed was prized for their outstanding herding abilities of any type of livestock. Today the Border Collie is a popular farm worker, family companion, and talented show dog.
Character
The Border Collie is medium-sized, exceptionally athletic, and possesses great endurance. This breeds obsession is their livestock work. They are high energy, confident, and determined. They are light on their feet, have a flowing movement, and are extremely versatile.
Temperament
This breed is intelligent, responsive, and devoted to their master and work. The Border Collie is extremely sensitive and thrives on human interaction. They are not recommended for the novice, sedentary or apathetic dog owner or for a home with a two-career family. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and will suffer separation anxiety or become destructive. Border Collies do best in a home with older considerate children. They typically get along with dogs they have been raised with but should not be in a home with cats or other small household pets. This breeds inherent work ethic will lead them to attempt to herd anything and everything that moves.
Care
The Border Collie requires weekly brushing. Special attention should be given to the coat during shedding. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when necessary. This breed is prone to PRA, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, deafness, Collie Eye Anomaly, and allergies to fleas.
Coat
The Border Collie comes in two coat varieties: rough or smooth. Both varieties are double coat and weather resistant and are close fitting and thick. The outer coat is either wavy or straight and coarse in texture. The under coat is dense, short, and soft. The rough coat variety has fur of medium length. The chest, forelegs, underside, and haunches are feathered. The coat on the face, front of legs, ears, and feet is smooth and short. The smooth variety has fur of short length over the entire body and there may be slight feathering on the chest, ruff, haunches, and forelegs. The color of the coat comes in all colors or combination of colors and markings. They may be solid, merle, sable, bi-color, or tri-color. Border Collies are average shedders.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Border Collie is easily trained and does best with praise, consistency, fairness, respect, and firmness. Due to their extremely sensitive nature this breed must never be treated in a harsh or heavy-handed manner. They are exceedingly talented in herding, police work, competitive obedience, search and rescue, Frisbee trials, and Flyball. Border Collies are also used successfully as therapy dogs and guide dogs for the blind.
Activity
The Border Collie has an inordinate amount of energy and requires more than physical exercise. They thrive on work, play, mental stimulation, and close contact with their owner and family. They are not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They do best on a working farm or in a rural secluded setting where they are able to romp, run, and roam freely and safely.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Border Collie puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Border Collie I just bought a male Border Collie. He is 2 1/2 months now. I have had him about 1 mo. My problem is he continues to bite everything. I cannot hold him without him biting me, tears up the rugs, shoes. I swat him with a rolled up newspaper tell him No! But it is meaningless. I'm thinking well they are supposed to be very intelligent. What is the problem here? My next issue is he knows where the potty pads in the kitchen are, he will poop & pee there but he still finds a way to pee on the carpet/floor. When he goes on his pads, I praise him. When he goes on the carpet I grab him put him on the pad tell him you go potty here! I dont praise that! What's it going to take to stop these two problems?

First off - NEVER hit your dog. He is a puppy and he has no idea what hitting means. Period. Secondly, you got your Border Collie way too young. Puppies should not be without their mothers until they are at least 8 weeks old. So you got your puppy right at weaning time, which means he never learned bite inhibition from his/her siblings and mother, and he never learned how to be a dog by watching his mother. For the biting and chewing, you need to get him some fun chews to play with. Antler's, nylabones, and raw-frozen beef bones are the best. Set your puppy up for success, do not allow him to be unsupervised, he needs to be on a leash attached to you at all times in the house unless he is in a crate or in a part of the house that he is blocked off from.

As for the potty training you have to use positive reinforcement training methods. Do not yell at your Border Collie, he has no idea and your tone of voice is telling him that it is bad to use the puppy pads, because THAT'S when you are yelling at him. If he makes a mess in the house, use an enzyme cleaner such as Nature's Miracle. This will clean the soiled area and take away the scent on the puppy's level. With normal household cleaner's, he can still smell his pee/poop. Now, have a timer go off every 2 hours during the day and take him outside or to the pad to use the toilet. Praise him and give him treats when he does. He shouldn't have accidents now if he is blocked off in his own space, in a crate or attached to you all day.

I disagree. swatting your puppy is healthy as long as the punishment is appropriate for their size and age. Even the Mother snaps and nips at the pups. Always associate a word with the punishment so they can learn its result is bad! Biting is a stage yes you got it early, but encourage chewing on hard chew bones and punish for things not chewable. Remember puppies are like little children, they only learn what you teach them or they will teach themselves bad habits

I disagree about swatting and shock collars. As long as you are training and not beating/torturing the dogs they are effective training methods to show certain actions aren't acceptable. As you said, the other person said biting is a stage all puppies go through and without brothers and sisters biting her back she won't realize when playing is overdoing it. A small swat on the nose (not hard) or sticking your finger that she's biting slowly to the back of her throat will cause her to gag and they will get the picture that it's not fun or enjoyable to chew fingers. Border Collies are extremely intelligent...for dogs. Potty training can take up to 4-6 months to be consistent and there could be occasional accidents after that. Again they are intelligent so if you leave them in the house all day. Imagine leaving a six year old by themselves all day without television, you're going to come home to a mess and when you are there they will act out to get attention.

The white gene in the border collie causes deafness. If the puppies are hearing tested, then that's good. But they can still go deaf later on in their lives. It is a risk.

There is a test called the BAER test (brain stem auditory evoked response) which will test the pup's hearing.

Are unbred, untrained, 2 yr old Border Collie females (healthy-outside dog) of any value? I have a healthy 2.5 year old pure bred female border collie who has never bred and has always been an outside dog; she is trained with basic commands, but no herding; the farm here is not likely to get any sheep, so maybe she would be valuable to someone else?

Your Border Collie will be worth more is she has some kind of verification that she is purebred - for instance, registration with the AKC. Because she is not a puppy, she is no longer worth a breeder's price. This does not mean you should advertise her as free to good home. Free to good home advertisements usually bring out dog fighters and abusers. If you are looking for a new home for your dog, you may want to give her to a no - kill rescue group. Otherwise, you can list her on the classified advertisements for a reasonable adoption fee (about $50-100). Be sure you know she is going to a good home. If you know a friend or relative who may want a dog, suggest your dog to them.

Dog's, unlike wolves or other canine's do not have a 'season' for breeding. An intact female dog will come into heat an average of every 6 months. But unless your dog is of impeccable breeding and has passed all health and temperament tests; and has titles, spaying your dog is the best thing to do for your dog and your bank account.

The best thing to do is to have the dog tethered to you or crated when he is in the house. When he needs to go out, go out WITH him and make sure he uses the bathroom. If he hasn't, do not bring him back in. If he is out for 30 minutes, then bring him back in and either tether him to you or crate him. When he starts to sniff or asks to go back out, take him out and stay with him unless he uses the bathroom. Praise lavishly when he uses the bathroom outside. Use an enzyme cleaner such as 'Nature's Miracle' to clean up all of his messes and where he has messed in the past.

(he's retired and she's his buddy) Unfortunately, she gets violently sick once or twice a month. We thought it was because she was chewing on black walnuts, but when those went away now we're wondering... sticks? fecal matter from animals around the yard? is this normal? she has pretty much free reign to run around the yard and she's super responsive to us when we call. We have tried to keep an eye on her but she's super fast and she likes to play games. She dry heaves, flem & bile come up and it is literally a 5 minute process everytime. I feel awful for the poor girl. She doesn't act sick though and it usually just springs up on us/her. Does anyone have any ideas of what this might be? Could it be contamination/could she be eating something that makes her that sick? Please don't be scared to answer me honestly.. I'll get her checked out myself if this keeps up. ~Worried!~

Are you giving her any treats? If so are they rawhide, or made of hoofs? A lot of times they will eat something that won't digest and will vomit to get rid of it. We have horses and when the horses get their hooves trimmed the dogs love to eat the "trimmings". I can count on cleaning up vomit later on after they eat it. Its because they can't digest it. Rawhide chews are very dangerous and not digestible as well.

Absolutely not! You will destroy the puppy's skeleton if you run him or her too young. Light running on grass is okay at 3-4 months, but actually jogging on the road for 2+ miles needs to wait until he or she is at least 11 months old.

He won't do those things if you give him enough exercise, daily walks and ball retrieving, frisbee, games to keep his brain occupied. He needs plenty of exercise EVERY day of the week. Don't expect him to fulfill his exercise needs by being left roam free. They are usually good at staying near the house once they receive enough exercise and attention from their owners. They're very loyal so not likely to wander off on their own unless bored. They're also very sensitive to any kind of punishment.

I live up in the mountians, and have always had border collies. If you get two Border Collies, the chances of them running away are higher. But we have always let our border collies run free, and have only had a problem when we had two at one time. I dont think that you will have any problem with it running free, and it will satisfy their exercise needs, although they would be much happier playing fetch or finding something to chase. We have never had a problem with digging or destructive Border Collies. They are very trainable and smart, so if you ever did have a problem, it could be easily corrected.

Number one, I would never allow any dog to run free especially in the mountains. Coyotes love to rat pack dogs and lead them off to be killed. Number two: If you are worried about your hardwood floors, I would suggest put a barrier up of some kind to cordon off the parts of your house that you don't want the dog to go. You can also train them not to go in certain areas as well.

It's hard to tell by the description, but she sounds like a Border Collie or a Australian Shepherd! It is likely she could just be a mix of many breeds or a couple breeds. You can also tell by it's character traits sometimes. Maybe you could do reseach on the Australian Shepherd and the Border Collie, and whatever is personallity fits her most might give you a clue. Your vet might be able to tell you what breed or mix she is to!

My Border Collie, jackson, is 6 years old... is he still "young" and does he still have a real long way to go or is his time very soon? :( hes nice and healthy, he's a good weight, loves to run, we dont have money to get his shots but we do bathe him with "skip flea shampoo" and i comb him. He's a very healthy dog so any answers to that would be great. thanks.

Most dogs have a average lifespan of 14 years. You are taking a big risk by not getting your dog vaccinated. If you can't afford the vaccinations, then you should rehome the dog to someone who can take care of him properly.

My last border collie lived to be 15. if they're healthy they have very long life expectancy. I wouldn't skimp on vaccinations. Sometimes vets will have discounted or free vaccinations days. Call around.

Vet care is so important - try to find away to afford it. Have a yard sale anything you can think of - they are apart of your family and need to be properly cared for.

It's not typical, the typical is black and white, but it is definitely possible, BC come in a lot of colors and patterns.
