Collies originated in Scotland and made their debut as a show breed in England during the 1860s. Excellent herders of cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, collies also make wonderful family pets. They have a sweet, playful temperament and get along well with children. Plenty of exercise off leash is essential for this active dog. More>>

Border collies, originating from the border of England and Scotland, are bred to herd livestock and are extremely intelligent and agile. A border collie can weigh between 30 and 50 pounds when it reaches maturity. But don't expect this breed to mature when it's one year old; they can take two to three years to reach full maturity.

Gordon Setters The Gordon Setter is an extremely intelligent dog of bold character and whilst they can be very outgoing, in some company they can also be equally reserved. The deduction that can perhaps be made is that whilst you might be judging them, they have already made up their minds up about you.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback is also known as the African lion hound because of its effectiveness in hunting lions in its homeland of southern Africa. As a puppy, the Ridgeback is extremely energetic, but as he matures he will slow down and be content to lie next to his owner. Ridgebacks do well indoors, but do need a big backyard to play in.

The Rottweiler is a powerful, calm and confident dog that maintains an air of self-assurance. With his inherent desire to protect his home and family as well as his aloof attitude, the Rottweiler does not generally make immediate and indiscriminate friends. In the hands of a responsible owner, a well-trained and socialised Rottweiler is a reliable and loving companion. They can be strong-willed, and should be trained in a firm, fair and consistent manner. Rottweilers love to be part of the family activities and thrive on human companionship.
