If you've ever seen a dog in a television commercial, there's a pretty good chance it was a Border Collie. Or, if you've watched herding competitions, you've probably seen a Border Collie controlling the herd. First and foremost, Border Collies are sheep herders. But when they're not on the clock, they can make excellent companions. They're energetic, playful, and extremely intelligent. They're also sensitive, affectionate, and adorable. Even though this breed is still vital to livestock owners, we will focus on the Border Collie as a pet in this book.

Intelligence is perhaps the most prominent trait of the Border Collie. In the pasture, this dog can understand specific commands and respond accordingly. They also excel at obedience competitions and agility runs because they can pick up new skills quickly and respond to challenging commands.

This book will give you the information you need to jump-start your ownership journey, including: Border Collie HistoryChoosing a Border ColliePreparing your Home for your Border CollieBringing Home your Border CollieBeing a Puppy ParentHousetrainingSocializing with People and AnimalsBorder Collies and Your Other PetsPhysical and Mental ExerciseTraining your Border CollieBasic CommandsDealing With Unwanted BehaviorsTraveling with Border ColliesNutritionGrooming your Border CollieBasic Health CareAdvanced Border Collie Health and Aging Dog Care

This book will become your go-to guide throughout your BC's life, as it has helpful hints and reminders that will prove to be practical far into their adulthood.

Border Collies are an absolute joy to have as pets. These dogs are beautiful, intelligent, and silly. They love to test their owners and call the shots, but at the end of the day, they're capable of following orders. You'll never find another dog quite like them, as they're capable of running around one minute and snuggling up beside you the next.

All your Border Collie wants is a purpose. While they may drive you nuts when they're bored, it's amazing to watch them work. Whether your Border Collie's "job" is to tend livestock, chase the rabbits and birds from your garden, or just be a loving companion, you'll find that your Border Collie will do anything for the love and affection with which you pay them.
