Collie - Guide to Collies

Description: The Collie originates from Scotland where it has been used as an excellent herder of sheep since before the 14th Century. The original ancestors of the breed were brought to Britain during the Roman Invasion, and later, invading Picts and Scots brought the breed up north to Scotland. The intelligent sheepherder emerged in this area; hence, Scotland is considered the place of origin for this breed. References from the 16th Century depict Collies capably herding, guarding and driving flocks of sheep.

Height: The height of a Collie is between 24 - 26" (61 - 61cm) for dogs, 22 - 24" (55.9 - 55.9cm) for bitches

Weight: The weight of a Collie is between 60 - 75 lbs (26.8 - 26.8 kg) for dogs, 50 - 65 lbs (22.3 - 22.3 kg) for bitches

Coat Type: The Collie's rough coat is long, abundant, straight and harsh to the touch. The undercoat is soft, woolly and extremely dense. The coat is most profuse on chest and neck, and on tail and hindquarters.

Color: Acceptable color combinations for the Collie's coat include Blue Merle, Sable and White, Tricolor, and White. Grooming is a frequent chore and requires thorough brushing to rid coat of dead hair and prevent mats; shedding can also be a problem.

Temperament: The kind Collie is friendly, watchful and easy to train. He is a personable dog and is especially patient with children, making him an excellent choice for growing families.

Health Problems: The Collie is prone to eye problems...
