Border Collie – Jamberoo

We have 3 gorgeous short- haired male puppies ready for their forever homes. They sleep outside at night and are doing really well with their toilet training. They always go down to the grass to toilet and do not make a mess on our verandah. All 3 are doing well on their recall. We go for walks around our farm and they always come when they are called. They have had lots of interaction with children and other adults. These boys are being raised on a farm and are used to sounds from lots of farm machinery - quad bikes, tractors and cars. They have been wormed every 2 weeks, vet checked, microchipped and had two vaccinations. We own both parents and we kept a female pup from the last litter who is almost 19 months old. Mum, dad and big sister all have amazing temperaments and are great family dogs.

Border Collie – Lake Tabourie

10 month old female border collie available. Molly is a great dog who is eager to please and be around her humans. Molly plays well with other dogs. Molly knows only basic commands but would be easily trainable for her new owners. Unfortunately I am travelling a lot for work and uni and unable to provide the daily stimulation & exercise and time molly needs. Molly can be excitable but she is still a pup. Molly needs to go to a home with humans that will include her in their daily lives and will provide her with the love and exercise she needs.

Border Collies are moderate shedders and need weekly brushing.

Origins

The exact origins of Border Collies are still shrouded in mystery. But it’s alleged that this breed developed from various sheep-herding dogs. The latter were used along the border of Scotland and England.

In the 1800s, there were different herding dogs in the Great Britain. Among them were ‘fetching dogs’, skilled at organising cattle. These dogs would also lead livestock back to their herders. They achieved this by barking or nipping at the animals; hence keeping them in line.

In a sheepdog trial conducted in 1873, Old Hemp, who is regarded the progenitor of the Border Collie, emerged triumphant. This pup was able to gather livestock in a calm and skilful manner without even barking at them.

The breed continued to be referred to as a sheepdog until 1915. After this time, their name was changed to Border Collies.

The breed gained massive popularity across the world. This aspect can be attributed to their herding skills. Currently, the Border Collie is admired for its many characteristics. These including the breed’s strong instinct and capacity to reason.

Key Characteristics Of Border Collies

Are Border Collies Family-Friendly?

Yes, they are a gentle and extremely intelligent breed.

They are very trainable but require a consistent handler.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Border Collies may suffer from:

Seizures

Retinal atrophy

Hypothyroidism

Canine Hip Dysplasia

Nature / Temperament

The Border Collie is a lively and active dog breed.

Their playfulness is off the charts. They’re also very tenacious and quick at picking up training commands.

Suitable Environment

Border Collies are best suited for country living. They thrive in outdoor environments that have pastures and farm animals.

Other Considerations

  1. Border Collies are go-getters they are born athletes with focus, stamina and enthusiasm.
  2. As herding dogs, it’s in the Border Collie’s nature to get tasks done.
  3. Border Collie are highly sensitive, they respond to the subtlest command.
  4. They herd anything that is mobile: kids, dogs, sheep and even cats. It’s advisable to keep your Border Collie in a securely fenced yard.

  6. The Border Collie is not the typical couch potato dog.

How can I take good care of my Border Collie?

Nutrition

As Border Collies are high-energy working dogs, they need a diet that is rich in protein and calories. However, each Border Collie will have unique dietary needs. For instance, Collies that spend most of their time working need a higher calorie intake.

Grooming

Like any other breed, Border Collies shed. They have hair of medium length and shed twice every year. But, it’s not unusual to find their hair around your home all-year-round.

The easiest way to reduce their shedding is by brushing them down. Weekly brushing is necessary to reduce loose hair as well as to improve your dog’s coat.

Exercise

By nature, Border Collies are a bundle of energy. These dogs are always waiting for a chance to be unleashed. The best way to exercise them is through walking, playing a game of fetch and running in open fields.

Training

Border Collies are one of the smartest breeds. They are easy to train. Yes, they learn new tricks pretty fast. But they can pick up bad habits as easily as good habits.

To prevent this, adopt from reputable Border Collie registered breeder.

Most Asked Border Collie Questions

Border Collies for sale can usually cost between $600 to $2000.

Yes, they make excellent swimmers if encouraged to do so when they’re young. Swimming is a great way to exercise these high-energy dog breed.

Yes, they are very agile. They can jump as high as 1.5m, especially if they notice something interesting on the other side.

Border Collies were bred to help in herding livestock rather than protecting them. As such, they are not very reliable guard dogs.

Most dogs bark when they are bored, and the Border Collie is no different. But with enough training and exercising, Border Collies are relatively quiet.

They are a low-maintenance dog breed. A 15-minute brushing a couple of times a week is typically enough.
