Bearded Collie - Guide to Bearded Collies

Bearded CollieDescription: The origin of the Bearded Collie may have come from the Magyar Komondor of Central Europe, however, there is also a theory this breed descended from the lowland Polish Sheepdog. To support this theory, documented records indicate that in 1514, Polish traders brought two lowland Polish Sheepdogs to Scotland. But, it is just a theory that suggests these dogs were then bred with local Scottish dogs to produce the Bearded Collie. The first documented description of the Bearded Collie breed was not published until the early 19th Century.

The Bearded Collie is an energetic and devoted herder of sheep and cattle in the rough terrain of Scotland. Known as Highland Sheepdog, the Highland Collie, and the Hairy Mou'ed Collie, it was also nicknamed Beardie and is one of Britain's oldest breeds.

In the early part of the 20th Century, the Bearded Collie just about disappeared. However, after WWII, Mrs. G. 0. Willison, owner of the Bothkennar Kennels was fascinated by the these dogs started breeding them for show purposes. In 1955, she established the Bearded Collie Club in Britain.

It was not until 1967 the first litter of Bearded Collies were bred in the US.

In 1974, The AKC allowed the Bearded Collie to be eligible to be shown in the Miscellaneous Class and in 1977, it was eligible to compete in the Working Group. Once the Herding Group was established in 1983, the Bearded Collie became a breed within this group.

The length of the coat is longer on the lower lip, cheeks and under the chin and lengthens toward the chest. This creates the characteristic beard of the this breed. The Bearded Collie is an average shedder. Daily brushing (not combing) is necessary in order to help prevent matted hair.

Color: The color of the Bearded Collie's coat can be lack, brown, fawn, blue; with or without lighter markings. Tan trim may occur on all colors.

Temperament: The Bearded Collie is an enthusiastic, high-energy, lovable dog. They do very well with children and love to be indoors with family.
