It has often been said that the Border Collie is the breed that has it all – brains and beauty. Initially bred to herd sheep, over time the Border Collie has developed into one of the most varied and versatile of all breeds, proving to be an expert in a huge number of fields including agility, obedience and working trials.
However, despite their many obvious talents, the strong instinct, drive and sensitivity of this breed has meant that the Border Collie is certainly not the most straightforward of dogs.
In this book, Carol Price, canine behaviour specialist and Border Collie expert, helps us to understand the intricate workings of this special breed’s brain. Covering a wide range of topics from the history of the breed, to understanding herding instincts, the reason behind obsessive and manic behaviour and providing the recipe for raising a problem free dog, this book is enlightening for even the most experienced Collie owner.
What experts are saying about Collie Psychology:
Carol Price gives us the most comprehensive insight into the life and mind of the beautiful Border Coolie. Every Border Collie owner or aspiring owner should be compelled to read this intelligent and minutely-detailed encyclopedia of this outstanding breed. A thoroughly good read and so well researched.
