Native to the border zone in Scotland and descending from the 19th-century Collie, the Border has inherited its matchless work capacity. Called 'eye dog' for its capacity to bend sheeps with the only force of the glance; in reality it dominates them with its feline movements tipically of predatory, guiding them stalking slowly but ever ready to spring. Precious dog, that the English exported to Australia, it became essential and irreplaceable and its huge diffusion initiated faster and more resistant new Australian breeds. In England they say that the Border carries out the work of twenty men in tenth the time. From the pride for the magnificent work carried out by these dogs came the competitions called Trials. In Italy the friendly competitions have been came out from several years both in the North and in the Centre. But it gained the greater success with Agility and with Obedience.
