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.

Full size is usually reached about 18 months to 2 years. Full rough coat about 3 years old. You can tell a rough from a smooth by the age of 3 weeks.

A collie may look full size at one year old, but they don't fully finish growing until about 2 years old. Both males and females are considered puppies until then.
