Home of the Most Freckled
Faced Border Collie on the Web!
Welcome! Thank you for visiting Newt's Page. I 'm glad you're
interested in learning more about Border Collies. They are the world's
most intelligent breed of dog. Found in almost every canine activity devised
by mankind. The Border Collie is the premier herding dog with a working
style unique to the breed. No other herding breed uses the low crouch plus
precise movements combined with the famous "eye" or stare to move a flock
For owners unable to engage their Border Collies in herding other
activities are available such as:
search & rescue
gundog sports (although rare)
...of course, there is always "Hamster watching"!!
Those activities are excellent for providing a wonderful outlet for
this breed's limitless energy. Border Collies can also make loving and
sympathetic, emotional therapy dogs for visiting nursing homes, hospital
and treatment centers. Newt is very sensitive to "who" he is visiting.
He is very gentle with the elderly and disabled children. No one would
guess that he is also personal protection trained.
Possibly, because of all the wonderful qualities inherent in the
Border Collie you might be inclined to think this is the breed for
you. Please take the time to evaluate your lifestyle and all your interior
valuables! Why? The answer is simple. A Border Collie left to it's wn devises
can drive you insane and become a one dog demolition crew. This is one
reason many Border Collies find their way into breed rescue groups who
must find appopriate foster parents before rehoming them. You can help
reduce this ever growing situation by educating yourself regarding whether
the Border Collie is the best breed for you.
Through the images and stories about my Border Collie Newt, I hope
you will gain an idea of what living with this breed is all about. U-AG1
U-CDX Newt CDX, CGC, HT, STDs, HRD-1, has proven himself a very versatile
dog. He is the fist dog I ever trained to any obedience, herding and soon
agility titles. Newt means more to me than any other dog I have ever owned,
he is my "once in a lifetime dog".
