The Border Collie is used as both a herding and a sporting dog. In fact it is considered as the best sheep herding dog breed. It is highly intelligent and needs constant physical and intellectual stimulation. They are most happy when they are working along with their dog owners. When participating in dog sport competitions, they often finish at the top particularly in “flyball” and “disc games”. They are well-known for their ability to learn new tricks quickly and for their obedience, agility and speed.
