Border Collie is beloved by many as an impressive species of herding
dog. Originating along the Border country between England and Scotland,
they were raised for their obedient sense of how to wrangle sheep and
for their ability to work long days on rugged terrain. Shepherds,
farmers, and dog lovers alike agree that Border Collies are one of the
most intelligent breeds on earth. Their ability to move sheep over
incredibly long distances is an impressive feat. The Borderlands of
Scotland and England have no natural predators for the sheep, but the
hilly terrain is incredibly difficult to maneuver the sheep over while
keeping them together. As early as the 1700s, UK Shepherds began
competitions to display their prized Border Collie’s abilities, a
tradition that made its way across the pond to competitions all over
America, most notably the Meeker National in Colorado.
Border Collie is known for two unique herding techniques, the Crouch
and the Eye. The skill of eye contact takes particular finesse. An
excellent herding dog knows the right amount of Eye gains control over
the sheep without threatening it or making the sheep afraid.
Border Collie Crouch pendant celebrates this incredible dog breed in
this sleek and stylish BC pendant. We see the Border Collie pendant in
the famous crouch position, communicating effortlessly with the herd it
has been employed to protect. Inside the body of the Border Collie
charm, two happy sheep heads with stippled ears and plenty of fluffy
wool adding stylish detail to the Border Collie’s active stance. The
Border Collie crouch is captured with poise and grace, with its ears
active and alert and its snout low to the ground, ready to make
potential energy kinetic. The BC rough coat of its fore chest adds
lifelike detail yet still maintains the sleek and stylish look.
