TAKING THE ROUGH
The exact origin of the collie has been cause for debate, however, in the early 18thcentury the Collie’s home was in the highlands of Scotland, where it had been used for centuries as a sheepdog. The dogs were bred with great care in order to assist their masters in the herding and guarding of their flock. Queen Victoria visiting Scotland could see the potential in the collie and added the collie to the Royal establishment, leading to its popularity during Victorian and Edwardian times. In the 1960’s , the collie became popular again with the lassie films and TV series.
