Meet Chowder, the Lovely Border Collie. Chowder has been a regular at The Grove for a few years now. She has great stamina and loves to herd the other dogs all day! She never tires, loves to lay in a nice wet mud puddle after a long ball chasing event!
The Border Collie is a HIGH energy dog and requires frequent exercise and lots of mental stimulation. The Border Collie although present in the United States for many years was only recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1995.
The original club for the Border Collie was the United States Border Collie Club (USBCC) founded in 1975. The USBCC was not in agreement with AKC recognition and so a new club was formed to work with the AKC; The Border Collie Society of America founded in 1994.
