The breed’s name comes from its original home in the English-Scottish border region where the dogs were developed from the 1700s to herd livestock, particularly sheep. With their boundless energy, eagerness to please and ability to quickly learn new tricks, border collie puppies love playing with their owners, especially if it involves a ball or a Frisbee.

A Most Intelligent and Energetic Canine
A tri-colored adult border collie, a member of a highly energetic breed that is often credited with being the most intelligent canine breed in the world. The Border Collie is a dog breed developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region for use on farms to assist with the herding of livestock. Their intelligence has been observed as having an intuitive quality that goes well beyond basic instinct. Such sensitivity calls for an environment that regards their higher faculties and provides tremendous stimulation relative to other dogs; otherwise, they can become distressed. With this understanding, they are excellent companion animals. Border collies are often cited as the most intelligent of all dogs.

 The border collie is descended from droving dog breeds. The name for the breed came from its probable place of origin along the Scottish-English border country. Mention of the "Collie" or "Colley" type first appeared toward the end of the 19th century. Many of the best border collies today can be traced back to a dog known as Old Hemp.

Working border collies can take direction by voice and whistle at long distances when herding. Their great energy and herding instinct are still used to herd all kinds of animals, from the traditional sheep and cattle, to free range poultry, pigs, and ostriches. They are also used to remove unwanted wild birds from airport runways, golf courses, and other public and private areas.

The use of border collies for herding sheep makes good economic sense. In a typical pasture environment each trained sheepdog will do the work of three humans. In vast arid areas like the Australian outback or the Karoo Escarpment, this number increases to five or more. Attempts to replace them with mechanical approaches to herding have only achieved a limited amount of success. Thus, stock handlers find trained dogs more reliable and economical.

Border collies excel at several dog sports in addition to their success in sheepdog trials. Their speed, agility, and stamina have allowed them to dominate in dog activities like flyball and disc dog competitions. Their trainability has also given them a berth in dog dancing competitions. Because of their various skills and intelligence, border collies make excellent search and rescue dogs in lowland, mountain, and urban areas. They have been trained in air-scenting, ground-scenting and as cadaver dogs.
