Smooth Collies are a medium-sized breed of dog with a sleek, dense coat and a gentle temperament. They are closely related to Rough Collies, but have a shorter, smoother coat.
Smooth Collies were originally bred in Scotland for herding sheep and cattle, but they are now popular as companion dogs all over the world, including Australia. They are intelligent and easy to train, and they make excellent pets. Smooth Collies are also known to be good with children and other pets. They form strong bonds with their families and with their friendly and adaptable temperament make an excellent addition to a household.
Smooth Collies can be noise sensitive, so it is important to socialise them to different noises from a young age. They also have a strong herding instinct, which can lead to them chasing and nipping at children, other pets or even moving vehicles. Proper training and supervision are essential to prevent this. Smooth Collies can also be prone to separation anxiety, so it is important to train them to be comfortable being left alone for short periods of time.
