The Border Collie is a medium to large sized short coated breed of dog that was developed on the Anglo-Scottish Border for herding livestock, especially sheep.
They are known as particularly responsive and intelligent dogs which makes them easy to train. They are often cited as the most intelligent of all domestic dogs. Border Collies continue to be employed in their traditional work of herding livestock throughout the world today, especially in Australia, where they were imported in large numbers during the 19th century for use on sheep stations (ranches). In more recent times they have been used for general farmwork and competitive dog sports; yet today also excel in agility, obedience and similar dog sports. Border Collies also participate successfully in non-competitive pet therapy, along with other dog breeds. Border Collies are often cited as the most intelligent of all domestic dogs.
