The Collie, one of the most easily recognizable dog breeds, is a large, agile herding dog. Originating in Scotland and Northern England, the Collie’s popularity quickly spread through Australia and North American for its skill as a livestock herding dog. There are two types of Collie, identifiable by their coat: the “rough” Collie, with a full-bodied, long coat (think: Lassie), and the “smooth” Collie, with a smoother, sleeker coat. While many Collies have remained working, herding dogs, this breed is also popular for showing and dog agility contests due to its innate ability to learn quickly.
