Coat : The Collie has two coat sorts: Rough (long hair) and Smooth (short hair). The Rough Collie has a rich, straight external coat that is unforgiving to the touch, and a delicate, hairy undercoat that is so thick it's hard to see the skin when you part the hair. The Smooth Collie has a short, thick, level external coat with a thick undercoat. Both assortments shed reasonably.

The head is wedge-formed and the gag is adjusted, decreasing to the dark nose, with a slight stop. The face is etched. The teeth ought to meet in a scissors nibble.

TEMPERAMENT : The Rough Collie is an exceptionally savvy canine.

They are characteristic herders; puppies may attempt and crowd people, and should be taught not. Loyal, energetic, mild and defensive of their relatives and great with kids, Collies have an uncanny ability to read a compass. They are pleasant, well disposed pooches. They are vivacious outside. Mingle them well to keep them from getting to be careful about outsiders. They are not forceful, but rather they do have a tendency to be suspicious of individuals they sense insecure vibes from. Day by day pack strolls are critical. Without a firm, yet quiet, certain and reliable proprietor who sets the tenets and sticks to them, they can get to be unyielding, headstrong and slothful. This breed ought to be prepared delicately, yet with a quality of power or he will decline to participate. A perfect breed, the Collie is moderately simple to housebreak. A few proprietors report that unpleasant Collies don't care for the water because of how overwhelming their jackets get when wet. We have seen cuts on the Internet of unpleasant Collies swimming, on the other hand, so while a great deal may not, it's never a flat out. Some smooth Collies have gotten to be fruitful at water salvage.
CHARACTER :The Rough Collie is typically calm unless she has motivation to bark. Be that as it may, in the event that she is allowed to sit unbothered time after time or in the event that she is exhausted, she will bark unnecessarily. Both assortments need preparing, however the Rough Collie particularly needs standard brushing to keep her jacket spotless and free of tangles. Numerous Collies are delicate to prescriptions including ivermectin, the medication utilized as a part of heartworm preventives. Make sure to chat with your veterinarian before giving your Collie a heartworm preventive or some other medication.
