About The Smooth Collie
The Smooth Collie is a highly intelligent breed with an eagerness to learn. They love a job to do. These traits make them very easy to train for many things: herding, tracking, obedience, agility, search & rescue just to name a few.
Smooth Collies are excellent family companions, they are gentle, loving and devoted. They are good with children and older folk alike. Smooths are very sociable, enjoying human company and also that of other dogs.
Smooth Collies are alert, which means they notice things around them. They are protective of their family and let them know if there is something important going on.
The Smooth Collie is a medium size to large dog, but does not need a large amount of space. They do need regular exercise, such as walks and a run in a park. If you are an active family looking for a wonderful family companion, be sure to take a good look at the Smooth Collie! Collies are suited to both city and rural life.
There are three colours recognised in Australia for the Smooth Collie. These are: Sable (varying shades of gold, from light gold to dark mahogany), Tri-colour (predominantly black, with tan markings on the face and legs); and Blue Merle (a marbled silvery blue, with tan markings on the face and legs). All Collies have white markings on their chest, neck, legs and tip of the tail. Some may have white face markings (e.g. blaze).
