    How do Collies like to play?

    I have been seeiously considering the Smooth Collie. I like the Collie disposition but I would like a dog that I can take out in the yard and play.. Obviously, Colliies are not retrievers, so I'm guessing fetch is off the table. So, what types of play activities do they enjoy?

    I love Smooth Collies and don't understand why they are not more popular.
    Of all the breeds that I have had, the hardest to teach to retrieve were show line Golden Retrievers - though they loved carrying soft toys around! Most breeds of dog love any games that involve chase, bite, (squeakers and chews), tug and carry. As long as you start them off gently, and make it easy for them to succeed, the breed really shouldn't matter - just look at the variety of breeds which compete in dog sports every weekend.
