Overview
The Collie is known for his elongated muzzle and coloration. This breed is very intelligent and keen on working as this is a herding breed. Great with children of all ages, providing the dog is well trained and properly socialized.
Character
This gentle breed makes a great household companion. The Collie has an obedient nature, willful, and gentle. Classified as one of the easiest to train breeds in the dog world. This breed is very self-assured, sweet, gentle, and trustworthy.
Temperament
The Collie has a very even and well-mannered temperament. This dog is regularly seen in homes with other animals and children, as they are very gentle and passive. Originally bred for herding, this dog has the tendency to nip at ankles as a pup, however most grow out of this stage. Willing to learn and very loyal, this dog will surely provide you with a lot of love.
Care
The rough variety does not require as much grooming as smooth. Short and stiff coat requires brushing weekly. Smooth variety requires daily brushing to remove any excess hair, and to keep hair from becoming matted. Monthly baths are recommended as their long coat traps dirt. The Collie is a heavy shedder given the season.
Coat
This breed comes in both rough and smooth varieties. Both have same coloration accepted. Most commonly seen in tri-color (black, white and tan), blue merle, and sable and white are also acceptable colors for this breed.
Training
This very intelligent breed is easy to train. This willful dog requires a gentle hand to avoid shyness and refusal to cooperate with his owner. Trained for herding purposes on occasion, this breed has a strong will to work and to please his owner.
Activity
This large breed responds best with a medium sized yard. Will do well in apartment life if given regular exercise. It is not recommended that this dog be left outdoors for long periods of time in hot weather, however if given the proper shade and water, will do okay.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of 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.

Will a collie be alright being left alone for 4-8 hours a day, maximum 20 hours a week? I am a college student but my schedule is very flexible and constant. Some days I'm only gone for school and work a couple hours a day, however there are days where the dog I adopt might be home alone 4-8 hours max. I do live at home with my mom so thankfully there would be someone home when I'm not. I'm just wondering how well Collies do being left alone. I know they're a pretty active breed, which getting the exercise it needs wouldn't be a problem, but are they okay to be alone for that long?

As long as the dog has gotten the exercise he/she needs before you leave him/her or at least some exercise before you go, the dog should be fine no problem. Since there will be someone there to allow the dog to go out to the bathroom, the dog should be fine. The Border Collie breed needs an average of 2 - 3 hours of hard exercise a day to tire him/her out. While the Rough and Smooth Collie need an average of 1 - 2 hours of hard exercise per day. I would suggest adopting an adult dog, as that will give you the maximum amount of wiggle room with leaving the dog at home before you exercise him/her when you get home. Look into puzzle-games and other forms of mental exercise for your dog while you are away.

Which sex of Collie would be the best to get as a companion to my male sheltie? Would 2 males fight Would it be best to get a female collie? Would 2 males fight? Sheltie is only 2 years old. I had a large male collie years ago and he was very mellow which makes me think they would not fight territorial. My Sheltie just loves to meet and play with other dogs and I do miss my large Collie very much and always wanted another one. The Sheltie is neutered.

shelties are fine with male or female but collies are territorial and usually fight with other male dogs so a female dog would be the best

The best combination is male/female. Second best is male/male and third is female/female. All likely would get along though. Spaying/neutering help them get along much better.

what is the best watch dog but good with animals and people wanting to know looking for a new puppy

I have owned a pomapoo, German Shepherd and multiple Keeshonds and I have found the Keeshond to be the best breed out there. The Keeshond is a wonderful family dog...good with people, children and other pets. They bark at every sound but wouldn't actually hurt anyone or anything. I had 3 and they were all wonderful and healthy pets. You have to brush them at least once a week with a wire brush to keep the coat from matting but are otherwise a very easy to maintain pet. I have 1 of mine left( the 2 older ones died last year) but am looking for another to add to my family. I highly recommend if you are willing to spend 30 minutes a week grooming it.

A collie is an excellent watch dog. They are easy to train and can be trained to bark when appropriate. Mine bark when a car, a stranger, or a strange animal come to our house. I can tell the difference between their barks and they stop when I tell them "it is okay". Collies naturally love people and get along well with other animals because they have an instinct to protect/herd other animals.

Some young male collies are hesitant or tentative breeders. Their first experience should probably be with an experienced female. Collies don't have any more trouble producing pups than any other breed -- however, there are inheritable vision and health conditions that at potential breeder should understand. You should avoiding breeding dogs that carry those traits.

do collies have any problems

2 Comments

Collies have several health issues. The greatest one by far is the "Collie Eye Anomaly" Most of our collies out there have this, actually over 90%. What this means is that the pigment in the back of the eye is not as dark as it should be to reflect the light. For a pet it is something you would never notice. The other issue, that most breeders have done away with is bloat. They are a large thoracic dog (deep chested) and if they eat to fast and then drink water and then run around they can bloat. Which is a problem that the intestines turn. Very similar to colic in a horse. It can be life threatening. To avoid this, soak there food in water and let it sit then keep them quiet to digest their meal. Most responsible breeders will have all their litter's eye check completed before they go to their new homes.

The most common problem to any dog is an owner who has not taken the time to consider the needs of the dog. Your collie needs love and attention. He craves petting and playing. He needs exercise, good food, fresh water and shelter from the elements. If you can provide these things, you are ready for a collie. Buy from a reputable breeder who will give you a health guarantee. Keep up to date on shots and workings.

Collies are ok in apartments if exercized regularly. They like to work retrieving ball and catching frisbees.

Many people keep their collie in an apartment. Since the breed is basically rather lazy, it will be fine as long as he gets a good long walk, preferably both morning and night. This is very important for his health and good for yours as well. Consider it a wonderful investment in your health to have a companion to keep you on track with your exercise.

Demodex on our 9month old collie What is the best treatment for a collie with demodex

Please ask your vet. Also note- Collies can have a problem absorbing zinc wich is an important skin mineral. A zinc sulfate deficiency can look exactly like mange, but you won't be able to find any mange mites under the microscope. Supplementing your collie's diet with zinc sulfate vitamins will give you a positive response in 10 days if it is actually a zinc problem. I have a white collie that requires zinc and night time excersise so the sun doesn't burn his face. I buy his zinc sulfate (for people) from the pharmacy $6 for 200 pills and one pill a day- it is cheap to manage. cheap

Most dog websites including this one can give you the AKC standard sizes. There are collies only 21 inches at the shoulder and 50 pounds in weight. There are also collies that are 28 inches tall and almost 100 pounds.

It wouldn't be inside always, but anyway I want a dog inside because, I have had 2 dogs that I loved dearly, but they died for a very odd cause, that I still don't understand. I want maybe my next dog to be inside because I don't want to go through that again..... If you have any advice, I'd love it.

Collies do shed some. It depends on if they stay indoors or outside.If they outside they will need to be brushed alot cause they have a thick undercoat for the winter. And they will shed this coat .I have heard that smooth coat collies are supoose to help with this problem.

Both rough (long coated) and smooth (short coated) collies shed A LOT. Brushing helps control the wild hair, but there will still be a great deal of undercoat lost. I have knitted scarves from my dogs' shedded hair. One breed that people with allergies can often tolerate are poodles.

Hi collie's do shed quite a lot, its like any long haired dog breed, you have to be prepared to put in the time for grooming the coat, maybe once per week is sufficient, they are a beautifully natured dog and look great when looked after well.

They probably shed less than short haired breeds, but the hairs are long, so you might notice some hair on furniture and carpets. This can be cured by frequent dusting and vacuuming. Collies need to be brushed about once a week, to keep their coats looking gorgeously beautiful. If you train them early, it's a simple matter to give them a shower and shampoo as well.
