Border Collie - The 'Dog Tag' Prints - 12 Colours, 27 Breeds Available

The Enlightened Hound


About Border Collies - The Border Collie was originally called the Scotch Sheep Dog. “Rough” or “Smooth” coated, they originated in Northumberland along the borders of Scotland and England, and are said to descend from dogs used by the Vikings to herd reindeer and the old British droving breeds, with a bit of spaniel added. A relentless desire to herd (be it sheep, cattle, children or cars) with a crouching pose and mesmerizing stare is characteristic of the Border Collie at work.

Top of the list of neuropsychologist Stanley Coren’s “The Intelligence of Dogs”, the Border Collie is known for its amazing wisdom, understanding and intuition. There are many tales of a Border Collie’s uncanny ability to foresee their owners’ needs and know when something is wrong. An intense desire to work and incredible stamina are the hallmarks of this smart and savvy breed. If they are not given a job to do they will just invent one for themselves (and then get it done - brilliantly)!

The 'Dog Tag' prints celebrate the history and characteristics that define particular breeds. The "dog tag" design idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. Debbie from The Enlightened Hound imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’.
