Border Collie: Characteristic
Border Collie is an energetic dog that is always on the move. She loves walking and is often used as a shepherd. If a breed representative is left alone for a long time, this will have a bad effect on his character: the pet will become irritable, constantly barking and “putting things in order” in the house. Therefore, the dog must constantly do something.
However, you will have no difficulties with training: border collies are phenomenally smart (some consider them the smartest breed of dogs) and are great at training.
Border Collies are famous for their special look: they seem to mesmerize you.
These dogs love attention and communication. They are friendly to children and pets, but tend to graze everything that moves (including birds, cats, children, vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers).
Many owners are confident that border collies can understand almost everything you say. For example, the Border Collie Chayser from South Carolina learned over 1000 item names and accurately distinguished them!
