Appearance
The Collie is probably best known for its role as Lassie, and is a graceful, elegant, and attractive dog with a sturdy build and a keen expression. The Collie weighs in at around 50-75 pounds, with weight varying based on the sex of the dog. The coat of the Collie is fairly long with a dense undercoat. The coloring of the coat can vary and includes white, sable and white, tri-colored, and blue merle. The Collie carries himself with real grace and dignity, and for many is considered one of the most handsome and elegant breeds.
 

Temperament
A well balanced, sociable, and intelligent breed, the Collie is a dog that makes an excellent family pet, offering a good natured personality, plenty of affection and devotion, and bags of loyalty for the right owner. The Collie is a breed that tends to get along with everyone, from children and adults to pets and even strangers. These are sensitive dogs, and need plenty of attention and love from owners. The Collie loves to spend time with his family, and will enjoy getting involved in a range of activities from exercise activities to play and recreation.

Dependable, responsive, and intelligent, the Collie is a dog that has a well above average learning rate which makes him easy to train using the right methods (positive reward based training). These dogs are well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as the experienced. The sweet nature of the Collie means that some dogs in this breed may be timid, and this means that early socialization is important in order to build confidence. The Collie will bark in order to raise an alarm if something is amiss, and this means that he can be an effective watchdog. The Collie does not like to live in an environment that is noise and fraught with tension, and a calm household is the ideal environment for this breed.

 
History
The life expectancy of the Collie is around 12-14 years, and there are various health problems linked to this breed. This includes eye problems, PRA, thyroid problems, epilepsy, skin problems, and bloat. The parents of the Collie puppy should have CERF certificates.
 
Health
When it comes to grooming the Collie needs to gave his coat brushed once weekly, and this will need to be stepped up at times when he is shedding more heavily, which occurs for two out of four seasons. The heavy shedding of the Collie during the spring and fall means that he may not be the ideal choice of allergy sufferers. There are two varieties of collie, which includes the rough coated and the smooth coated Collie, and the grooming requirements can vary based upon the type of Collie that you have.
