TAKING THE ROUGH
exact origin of the collie has been cause for debate, however, in the early 18th century 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.
The Club welcomes any new members who wish to be part of the collie world.
