Border Collie Dog Breed Information

border collie dog breed information

The border collie is one of the most instantly recognisable dog breeds in the UK and one of the most popular dogs in the world. It is also called simply a collie or a Scottish Sheepdog.


The border collie often lives between 10 - 14 years


The border collie tends to cost in the region of £600 (around £400 for a non-KC registered variety), so if you see border collie puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind.


A border collie is usually around 50cm in height and generally weighs in at between 12-20kg.


Border collies are exceptionally easy to train with an exceptional intelligence to match, are good with children but require an enormous amount of exercise to stay satisfied. They can tolerate being alone for morderate periods of time.
