Collies are incredibly active working dogs so need to be stimulated (especially as a puppy) to ensure their minds don't wander to more destructive activities around the house and garden. They are often considered one of the smartest dogs in the world so it's no surprise they're happiest when they have something to do. This doesn't mean you need to be planning out their day by the minute as simply listening to commands from their owner and making decisions can be enough. This is why it's imperative that you get your collie / collie mix trained at a young age so they have an understandable line of communication with you.

Typical traits include - Friendly, Loyal, Gentle, Intelligent, Protective and Active
