INFORMATION ON THE BREED:
The rough collie is intelligent, affectionate, and intensely devoted to their humans. They love kids. They love playing with them, and protecting them. Keep in mind, however, herding instincts can kick into overdrive during outdoor playtime, and a collie may nip at a child’s heels. They won’t do much damage, but this could be frightening to little ones and irritating to other pets as well.
Nothing makes a rough collie happier than being close to his family. If you’re away at the office all day, it could lead to a depressed and bored dog. A bored dog can quickly become a destructive dog. If you prefer to keep your sneakers and furniture intact, it's suggested to give your rough collie loads of attention. Rough collies aren’t usually well-suited for apartment life because of their tendency to bark when bored.
Owners should plan to provide at least 30-45 minutes of outdoor activity per day. If a rough collie is given the opportunity to burn off his pent-up energy, he’ll be happy to chill out with the family once he returns inside.
Because they’re a rather sensitive breed, they will not do well in a household where there is constant screaming and strife.
Rough collies can be very stubborn. As herding dogs, collies needed to be able to think on their feet and make decisions independently. So, you need to work with their independence and not against it.
Collie's need a thorough weekly brushing to prevent mats and to maintain the coat’s healthy sheen. Twice a year, a rough collie will “blow coat" and hair will be flying during this seasonal shedding, so be prepared to break out the hairbrush every day during this time.
