The collie is a distinctive type of herding dog, originated in Scotland and Northern England. They typically display great agility, stamina and trainability and more importantly sagacity. Collies are famously fond of children and make wonderful family pets. With gentle training, they learn happily and rapidly. The Collie is gentle, affectionate and sensitive, but Collie puppies don’t come fully trained and ready to rescue Timmy from the well. They are not a one-person dog and are protective of everyone in the family. They are an excellent choice as a family dog and get along with other pets.
