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.

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.

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

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.

When a dog gets bored, it will start doing undesirable behaviors like this. It means she needs more to do with her time. Try adding more activities. Collies love people and make great therapy animals. There are toys that can have treats put inside to create a challenge. Some collies are more active than others and need more to do.

Not only can giving your Collie more activities help, but if digging persists you can also put gravel where common digging locations are, and that can discourage digging because it's not as pleasant on their feet as dirt is. I've also used sticks for my dog when he was digging for a while (my neighbors had just gotten a horse and he REALLY wanted to check it out).

Giving your Collie more activities can help, dogs, especially smart ones like collies, can get bored easily and need something to do such as going on walks or playing or chewing on toys. Kong toys are great for providing a challenge to your dog. If that doesn't help you can also put gravel in the areas where she digs. I've also put a pile of sticks in an area where my own dog used to dig at.

You may get some ok puppies, you will definetely get some with the lethal double merle gene. Inheriting a merle gene from each parent. It causes blindness, deafness, white colors and fatal birth defects.

Yes it is the same as the roan to roan or dalmatian to dalmatian breedings in guinea pigs. I'm a cavy judge and also have a friend that raises collies. You should not breed two blue merles together unless you are prepared to find pet homes or put to sleep some of the puppies. In this breeding some of the puppies will be blind and or deaf.

I did research on breeding blue merles and I contacted all the experts I could find. Not only is it not okay to breed two blue merles together, apparently a blue headed white and a sable merle also have the merle gene and it is not safe to breed them to another merle. The risk of disabled and deformed puppies is just not worth it.

A male should reach full zize by a year. If your dog has a smooth coat it will be short. If he is a rough, it should be longer and softer and you'll see the "feathers" or long hair on the front legs and tail. Some rough collies tend to have more hair than others, but you should easily be able to tell a smooth collie from a rough.

Male collies shed heavily twice a year, when the season changes. I brush them every day for one week. It is important to get all the loose fur off them then, or they will mat. The females shed heavily at least 6 times a year, if they are not spayed. A female who has been spayed will shed heavily twice a year, like a male. They do not shed much other than that, compared to other breeds. My brother had a jack russell who shed much more than my collies, but it was less noticeable because it was shorter fur. Even when a collie is in between it's heavy shedding times, called "blowing it's coat", it should be brushed to prevent it's coat from tangling and keep it clean.

My collies bark when a stranger approaches the house, when a car pulls in the driveway, or when a strange animal comes into the yard. I can tell from their bark which it is. When I tell them "it's okay", they stop. I call them my furry doorbells. Any collie can be trained to only bark at appropriate times.

I got my collie when she was just a puppy and it was very easy if you want a brand new puppy like i got it is not very hard to potty train them you could start out with puppy pads and have this scent spray you can buy at pet stores to help and also everytime when you think or after he or she eats or drinks just take them right out side or have a timer go off and have a schedual. Soon it will be great cause my collie does many tricks and when it has to go to the bathroom she just barks to when she needs to go out. Hope it Helps! :)

Collies are very easy to house train, since they are so smart. It is easier if the pup is at least 8 weeks when you bring it home. Also, if it has had appropriate kennel space, its mother will already have begun training it to use one corner of the kennel for that purpose. If you can set aside a few days to work with your pup continuously and watch it for signs that it needs to "go potty" and take it outside immediately, your pup will soon catch on.

when you say a double dilute I guess you mean both parents are blue merle, this is a inon desirable breeding because the merle in both parents will produce just what he has. no surgery will help sorry

They are not correctable. If you type blind and deaf dogs into your internet search engine you will find websites that will help you and your collie live happy and healthy.

As an adult, I've had 4 pure bred Collie's. Our female Tri passed at 8.5 yrs old; our male sable passed at 9.2 yrs; our blue merle female just passed at 11yrs. We still have 1 female sable (she was siblings with our only male that passed @9.2 yrs) and she will be 12 yrs old on 7.4.12. As a kid, my family always had collies & none made it past 9-10 yrs old. I personally think dogs of all breeds are being overbred & that leads to a shorter life span. We spare no expense on their food, care, medical, etc.

My friend, Travis Schulz, had his collie, Jim for 27 years. Jim herded sheep right up to the last, albeit a little more slowly. That is an unusually long life span, though.

Almost all older dogs will make an active puppy leave them alone. Occaisionally one will adopt a puppy, if the older dog isn't in a lot of pain. A young but mature dog of the opposite sex with a campatible personality might be a better option as far as how quickly they become friends.

A good quality puppy food which has a meat not a grain for the first ingredient. I feed my growing collies a good large breed puppy formula for the first 18 months of life.

My breeder recommends Canidae all life stages with a tablespoon or so of the similar canned mixed in along with. Also, recommend the Nupro joint supplement mixed in, with a little water makes a kind of gravy your collie pup or collie adolescent will love. Refrain from people food lest they become picky eaters. Remove the dog dish after 30 minutes to discourage picky eating.

are collies scared of everything?

Yes, if the collie is not properly socialized. Unfortunately some puppy mills jumped on the "band wagon" that the Lassie films caused and created some very timid and nervous family lines. Always try to meet the breeder and at least one of the parent dogs. Meeting both parents and other related dogs would be best.

A timid collie is not desirable according to the breed standard. There are many collies that aren't very brave. Responsible breeders will only breed collies that have desirable collie qualities and fear isn't a desirable quality. That is why it is important to support responsible breeders who really care about improving their breeds. I have rescued and trained many collies. A fearful collie can benefit from training and all puppies should be properly socialized when young; but it is so much easier to breed for a correct temperament, than it is to correct a fearful personality.

Any dog that is not exposed, as a puppy, to new things can be timid or fearful. Collies are often "reserved" -- which is different than "scared". The breed as a whole is more SENSITIVE to environmental changes than more rough and tumble breeds (such as Dobies or Labs), but good early exposure to lots of different stimuli promotes puppy confidence.

A collie's nature is one of outgoing friendliness. Most members of the breed exhibit this characteristic. This is reinforced by spending a lot of time with your pup and dog and taking him for exercise and experiences where he will encounter other people and situations.
