The Border Collie Is a herding dog breed that mainly herds sheep. They are extremely intelligent and obedient dogs. In Stanley Coren’s Intelligence of Dogs Rankings they ranked number 1! They are considered to be the smartest dogs on the planet. Besides being brainiacs they are also athletic, energetic and acrobatic.
They can follow direction by voice or whistle from very long distances while they herd. They utilize their intelligence, energy, and herding instincts by herding all kinds of animals from the traditional sheep and cattle, to free range poultry, pigs, and ostriches. They are sometimes used to get rid of unwanted wild birds from golf courses and airport runways.
In this hilarious video below, this Border Collie herds something rather unusual. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this pup herds up his human’s ‘mates’ to make sure they get to the local pub right on time. I can’t stop laughing at this one. Source: Wikipedia
