Border Collie

As the brainiac of the canine kingdom, the Border Collie can never have too many hobbies. She's a breed who lives to work, which means you can even teach her cool tricks to help with household chores! Like many herding breeds, you'll have to make sure she doesn't attempt to herd children and other small animals. It's in her nature, but if you see it happening and can redirect her to a new (and more interesting) activity, the behavior will stop.
