The Bearded Collie has a rather naught and mischievous expression at times, and sports a distinctive shaggy coat, which is harsh and flat, and can be wavy on some dogs. The outer coat has a softer, close set undercoat. There are various colorings to choose from with the Bearded Collie, and this includes black, slate, various shades of blue, fawn, or brown. Many have white or tan markings, and the coat shading can change over the life of the dog. The height of the Bearded Collie is around 20-22 inches, and the weight around 40-60 pounds.

The Bearded Collie is a happy-go-lucky, carefree dog with plenty of life and energy, and a good natured disposition. He has an inquisitive nature, and loves getting involved in a range of activities including herding, agility, hiking, and protecting. This is not a dog that you should neglect when it comes to play and attention, as the Bearded Collie can get easily bored and this can lead to destructive behavior. These dogs have a sweet nature, but without proper socialization can become timid. Some Bearded Collies can be very independent and stubborn, so this should be taken into consideration when training, although these dogs are still well suited to both inexperienced and experienced dog owners.

The Bearded Collie is good with children, and is fine in households with older children. However, this breed can be very energetic and boisterous at times, and this could make it a little difficult to have around younger children. The Bearded Collie is also a herder by nature, and may try and ï¿herd' children and other animals by nipping and circling. Friendly and active, the Bearded Collie is a great companion pet that will get along well with other pets, and although he can be reserved around strangers to begin with will soon start to welcome them.

The Bearded Collie originates from Scotland, and was originally bred to herd sheep and drive cattle. Once known as the Highland Collie, the Bearded Collie is thought to have been developed from Polish dogs. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1976.
The Bearded Collie has a life expectancy of around 12-14 years. A range of health problems and issues are associated with this breed, and this includes thyroid problems, autoimmune problems, Addison's Disease, cataracts, epilepsy, HD, SAS, allergies, and skin problems. You should ensure that the parents of your Bearded Collie puppy have OFA and CERF certificates.
