Synopsis: The Border Collie's strong instincts, quick wits and intelligence have proved both a delight and a challenge to owners. The book explains how to address this intelligence, through training, work and socialization.

From the Inside Flap: The Ultimate Border Collie The Border Collie is one of the most fascinating of breeds, and it now has an enthusiastic following worldwide. The combination of its strong instinctive behaviour, its quick wits and intelligence have proved a challenge to many a dog owner — and the rewards of training a Border Collie to the height of its powers are tremendous. This is a breed which is still highly-prized as a working sheepdog, it excels in the disciplines of Competitive Obedience, Agility, Flyball, and Working Tests, and it is becoming increasingly valued as an assistance dog, working with the deaf, the disabled, and the blind. Bred first and foremost for its working ability, the Border Collie is also blessed with distinctive good looks, and is now making its mark in the show ring. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the Border Collie is a loving and affectionate companion dog. In The Ultimate Border Collie, Editor Alison Hornsby has recruited a star-studded cast of specialists to write the definitive book on the breed. Experts from all over the world have pooled resources to give the most comprehensive coverage of the Border Collie today. Starting with research into the origins and development of the breed, the experts go on to analyse the Border Collie's mind and how its instincts and intelligence can be channelled into the various working and competitive roles. The show Border Collie is also highlighted, with three Championship judges giving a special pictorial critique. The importance of training and socialisation is emphasised throughout the book, with contributions from top trainers and handlers in all the Border Collie's different spheres of activity. There is a section devoted to the Border Collie at work, finding out why the breed excels at such a variety of tasks, accompanied by the personal stories of those whose lives have been dramatically changed by owning a Border Collie. Leading experts give detailed information on feeding, exercise, health care and inherited conditions, and there is coverage of breeding and rearing Border Collies illustrated with top-quality photographs. The Ultimate Border Collie, a book for the true breed enthusiast, is lavishly illustrated with more than 200 colour photographs.
