The Afghan Collie’s intelligence lends to easy trainability. However, ensuring good behavior comes along with the need to properly exercise and stimulate this dog. The Afollie does best with a walk or hike of at least 60 minutes daily along with other exercise opportunities. This breed excels in a home with a large backyard to play in.
Afghan Collies are often good natured and strive to get along with everyone. However, the Border Collie has origins based in herding, and this can easily be passed down to mixed breeds. Afghan Collies may try to herd other dogs, smaller pets, or small children. If this behavior is displayed in inappropriate settings, consistent redirection is needed. This can become a problem behavior easily. Athough intelligent, the Afghan Collie can also be stubborn.
