Bearded Collie   Herding group, long hair, family friendly


The Bearded Collie is thought to have his origins with the Komondor, a dog that settled in Hungary in the 12th century. As the name would suggest, they are recognizable by their facial hair; long hair is a key feature of this breed, and they require at least a few minutes of brushing per day. They are extroverts and affectionate family dogs who require daily exercise to maintain peak levels of health and happiness.
