Transcript of Collies
Original Collies were closer in size and shape to today's Border Collies, and they were predominantly black. Herding ability was more important than appearance, so the dogs varied a great deal in looks.Stone Age nomads brought dogs to what is now Southern England, and from these came a hardy, intelligent dog used to herd sheep, cattle, goats, and pigs.
In this Prezi we are going to talk about a certain type of dog called Collies. The collie dog breed is a native of Scotland, mostly of the Highland regions but also bred in the Scottish Lowlands and northern England.
Weight and Size
The Collie weigths about 50 to 70 pounds. Also if it's a male it can be 24 to 26 inches tall and a female is 22 to 24 inches tall.
Collies are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they're prone to certain health conditions. Not all Collies will get any or all of these diseases, but it's important to be aware of them if you're considering this breed.
Coat, Color and Grooming
The Collie has two coat types: Rough (long hair) and Smooth (short hair). The Rough Collie has an abundant, straight outer coat that is harsh to the touch, and a soft, furry undercoat that is so thick it's difficult to see the skin when you part the hair. The Smooth Collie has a short, dense, flat outer coat with a thick undercoat. Both varieties shed moderately.
The well-bred Collie is sweet, friendly, and gentle. She is a family dog and enjoys being part of all household activities. Especially fond of kids, she enjoys playing with them and protectively watching over them.
The Collie lives comfortably in the city or the country, as long as she has enough exercise. A brisk, daily walk and yard play are sufficient. Mostly, she wants to be with her family, meaning she is not a candidate for a backyard lifestyle
How are collies great protectors?
The Collie’s centuries-old history as the protector of sheep suits it well to be the protector of the family, especially children. Being remarkably intuitive and protective, Collies are “almost human in how extremely intuitive they are to their people.
