Border Collies are the smartest dog breed in the world.
The American Kennel Club describes the Border Collie as a “remarkably bright workaholic”.
This breed requires lots of mental and physical stimulation given their extremely high IQ.
Having said that, Border Collies will still enjoy some downtime with their pet parents at night.

We’ll travel to the US, Australia, New Zealand, England, France, Canada and more to meet some beautiful Border Collies.
