A comprehensive guide to all aspects of owning a Border Collie, this highly illustrated book is full of practical information and expert advice for pet owners and breeders.
Border Collies are a working breed and excel in agility and well as obedience training; they are the overachievers of the dog world, eager to please and gluttons for more work or play. If you are considering owning a collie, or are an existing owner who wants to learn more about the care of your dog, then this book will be an invaluable resource.
• History of the breed
• Acquiring a puppy
• Rearing and socializing your puppy
• Training and competition events (obedience, agility, flyball and showing)
