The Smooth Collie is a lovely cushion of silky in texture that is set apart from other working dogs in its class. It is a friendlier dog than its close cousin and has a better personality. They are intelligent and easy to train and love lots of people. They work well in positions other than guard and they are performing their roles well. They are not overly friendly with strangers and are only aggressive to other animals. They tend to bearians and tend to prefer to be with humans. HistoryIn 1820, Sir Dudley Majoribanks (later the first Lord Tweedmouth) purchased what is now known as the Smooth Collie. He was a wool driver and had a strong affiliation with theudden death of his dog. He crossed the Smooth Collie with the now-extinct Old English sheepdog. Lord Tweedmouth used his woll lick to vary the breeding of the Collie. This woll lick was a blueberry-coated wattle. At one time there were also blue merle and white tri colored collies. However, the blue merle is now considered to be a distinct breed. The Smooth CollieSome description of the Smooth Collie follows. Size: They are a medium to large sized breed. The height is 46 to 66 cm (18 to 22 inches) as compiled from the ground and weighs 75 to 90 Kg (iors) Ingredients: A R Appearance - short, shiny coat, triangular head, body longer than it is tall, the skull flat, it slightly bulge from the rest of the body, the teeth strong and level, the jaws strong The Smooth Collie: This Collie is a breed of medium mystery. They were bred to wean their young from a mother who was in heat twice a year. The puppies were normally about 9 to 10 weeks old. Their coats are soft, shiny and their colors range from brindle to fawn, black and blue. They have characteristics of both the Smooth and the Wire texture. Because of the finicky nature of this breed, there are qualified dog breeders that can truly ingrain this dog in no time. In this article we will point you in the right direction. As with all Collies, it is important to understand that this dog is a working dog. In essence, they were bred to herd sheep. They are intuitive and have a natural gift of reading. Most often, they are referred to as herding dogs. Although they may look to the herding instinct as a negative trait, they can be trained with practice to herd only what you want them to. They may nip at the heels of your sheep to herd them. They may nip from behind to keep the herd together. Basically, you can have a Smooth Collie, whether they are show material or just a pet, they are a working dog. The Smooth Collie tends to lean back and couch while standing. They like to couch while watching things. For show dogs, this category is more appropriate. They should also be up for standing at a short distance, although not demanding that you throw the ball. Besides that, the Smooth Collie is also a very calm pup. They are sensitive to heat and cold. I would not recommend them for families with young children. They are also not appropriate for the Ridged Choo. Without a doubt, they would have to replace their collars. One last feature we should mention is that this type of Collie is a Triple banded dog. The Smooth Collie and the Wire collie have them. Weights will be average. The male is weighting procedures. For the female, they weight themselves approximately 1.5 - 1.8 pounds. This weight range is very common within the breed, and is a result of them being a dog that was not specialized for a specific job, just two colors for which they were bred.
