The Bearded Collie is a purebred dog breed part of the herding group. Initially bred to drive cattle and help shepherds, this dog breed is still an excellent herder today. However, they’re also excellent family companion dogs, smart, bouncy, and charismatic. This dog breed is well-known and is believed to have been around since the 1500s and is still a popular choice to this day.

It’s easy to recognize a Bearded Collie. They resemble Sheepdogs with long, silky coats in black, blue, brown, or fawn with white markings. Also, this dog breed is medium-sized, with females being slightly smaller than males. For instance, males can grow between 21 to 22 inches tall.

This dog breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years with proper care. You’ll want to bring them to the vet annually so that they can get a good checkup since they’re prone to some health issues. In addition, grooming is high-maintenance. It’s a good idea to bring them to the professional grooming salon at least once a month for a bath and a clipping if they need it. In addition, Bearded Collies shed a considerable amount. If you don’t want their fur all over your clothes and furniture, then be sure to brush their coat daily. Finally, they have high energy levels. They’ll need a bigger house with a fenced-in yard for ample physical activity every day. They’ll love to play games with you, go on long walks, or have a job to do.
