What is it about? This is a specialist book on the Border Collie tracing its origins and background, and including all aspects of caring for this highly versatile breed dog.  There is information on choosing a puppy, preparing your home for a Border Collie, and guidance on feeding and exercise. The Border Collie has a strong work ethic and needs an active, stimulating lifestyle, so there is detailed advice on training and socialisation, as well as overcoming problem behaviour. For those who want to compete, or just have fun, with their Border Collie, there are lots of ideas for activities with Border Collies, plus an interpretation of the Breed Standard for those who want to get involved in showing or breeding. Finally, there is a chapter devoted to health issues.
