This is an information website, that gives specific data on many breeds, including the Border Collie; and its owners are willing to make changes in favor of facts, which is very refreshing. Their target audience is pet owners, but today we can't ignore that it is likely that many Border Collies are owned as pets rather than as working dogs. Giving their owners information they can use to help their dogs lead a fruitful and rewarding life is important. Other information that can be found on this website are links to breeders, shelters, and vet clinics, articles on health and products, and more. It's a relatively new site and hopefully it will expand in the future.
