:dogsmile:I've owned a rough collie for almost three years now, and i can say that they are the best dog breed to have! after seeing labs, terriers, border collies, leonbergers, dals, and all the others collies come out on top! My collie lives outside in the day and doesn't mind one little bit, he comes in at night after his walk and settles right down beside you. He learnt to sit, lie down and give you his paw in less than an hour and is really sensitive to your body language- which makes you feel really close to him. Plus, collies have 0% agression- if you get one from a reputable breeder, they love children and all other dogs, cats - anything! you can trust them 100% and they ask for very little. Even if i forget to take my dog for a walk he won't be destructive, loud, or go to the toilet in the house. Personally i think that the film lassy really does sum these dogs right up! They're so loyal but without the agression- unless you really are in danger, in which case they would die to protect you.
