Collies are from Scotland, where they were bred for centuries to help manage flocks of sheep as well as other animals. So impressive is their ability to take complex direction in the task of herding that collie herding competitions will leave the novice spectator in dumb-founded amazement. A trained collie will follow commands communicated by the whistle of its master over large distances and amidst the bleating of great flocks of sheep. Their long hair is an adaptation to the cold Scottish Highland air.
