Border Collie

Sheep dog Border Collie

The border collie was originally bred by farmers in England to manage livestock. Border collies are intelligent, obedient, eager to please, and easily trained. Most of them begin to show natural herding instincts from when they are puppies.

Border collies are the most common type of working dog and help muster sheep, cattle, goats, pigs and poultry.

See our sheep dogs in action during our daily sheep dog shows at 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:30pm.
