Dog Breeds

  • Border Collie

    Border Collies are medium-sized athletic dogs with hard, muscular bodies, graceful and effortless movements, endless endurance, and an intense stare.

  • Group: Herding
    Lifespan: 12–15 yr
    Height: 18–21 in
    Weight: 31–53 lb

  • Care

    Both rough and smooth-coated Border Collies have waterproof double coats that require regular grooming. Brush them at least once per week to remove dead hair and keep their coats free of tangles, mats, and debris. When these dogs blow their coats, brush them with an undercoat rake several times per week. Keep their ears clean, and their nails trimmed. Like all breeds, Border Collies benefit from a regular dental care routine that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings.

    Border Collies have solid, muscular bodies with straight, strong backs and deep chests. They have oval eyes; medium-sized ears that are set well apart and carried erect or semi-erect. Border Collies carry their already low-set tails when focusing on a task.
