Playful is an understatement for this breed of dog. With relentless energy and the sharpest mind in the domestic canine family, this dog loves to work and will beg for distractions. It will want to be on the forefront of your day, and unless it is, will a hyperactive and imposing presence in your life. Collies are athletic, versatile and can adapt to any physical challenge, so hopefully you have a large yard to keep them occupied.
Needs: At least an hour of playtime with A LOT of running! Less loving and more playing. Although their beautiful long coats are easy to groom, shedding might be a problem for anyone who is hypoallergenic.
