Information on the Border Collie Dog Breed

 

Border Collie

Because of his strong drive to work and his high intelligent level, the Border Collie dog breed can be a very high maintenance dog.  If he does not have a job to do and doesn’t have a way to exert his energy, he can be extremely destructive.  If you are considering getting a Border Collie dog breed as a pet, be sure that you have an active lifestyle and that you can fit your dog into this lifestyle.  A Border Collie dog breed needs lots of vigorous exercise as well as mental stimulation.  Many owners of the Border Collie dog breed enter into dog agility clubs.  At a dog agility club, the dog has access to an obstacle course and mental stimulation is provided by the owner who teaches him to navigate the course. Some areas even have a herding club.  Other forms of exercise and/or mental stimulation include jogging, fetch, flying disc, and more.
