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.
