Collies are a group of sheep herding working dogs. They have their origins in England and Scotland. These dogs get their "Collie" name from "Colley" sheep that the dogs herded in Scotland. They are large dogs but very active and agile. Collies are known for their strength and stamina. Their strong musculature helped them spend many hours a day tending to sheep. Their thick double coat helped keep them warm on a cold night in the Scottish Highlands. The early sheep herding dogs most likely ate scraps from their owners' table and meat from hunts. They needed a lot of calories for their active work. Collies are known to be fussy eaters. Certain foods may be upsetting their digestion.
