Kasia is a 2-year old Border Collie from Croatia. Since Kasia was still a puppy, her owner trained her to do several stunts such as walking on two feet, tucking herself into a blanket, playing cards and many others.

Now, Kasia includes riding a Segway on her list of awesome tricks. She recently mastered how to slow down and accelerate while riding a Segway!

Karla Krasni, Kasia’s owner said that her adorable pooch is such a quick learner.” Kasia learns tricks really fast that when we showed her how to put her paws on the Segway, she did it all by herself,” said the Border Collie owner from Zagreb, Croatia.

Krasni also said that the next trick she would like to teach Kasia is how to spin on one. Kasia never fails to amaze everyone with her skills.

Kasia first started to learn how to walk without a leash. After that, she learned other tricks such as bringing back a Frisbee and making bubbles. She also learned how to do different jumps and spins. Aside from this, Kasia learned how to tuck herself in a blanket, play dead or feel ashamed. She even knows how to pull a card from a deck of cards!

According to Karla, she found Kaisa when she was on a holiday on Vir Island, Croatia two years ago. During those times, Karla was in need of a reason to go out more often because she spent so much time at home. When she met Kaisa, she knew the pooch is the perfect one for her. Kaisa is an active dog and since then, the two have been to several places and become best friends.

DISCLAIMER: The information provided in this story does NOT prove your dog should be vegetarian or vegan.  We are NOT advocating for a specific diet preference for your dog.  This is a report on one specific case of a dog who was able to thrive on such a diet.  You are advised to seek professional advice from a veterinarian prior to making any significant changes to your dog’s diet.  

Have you heard of her story before? Bramble, an amazing Border Collie who lived to just over 25 years old. That’s equivalent to 189 in dog years!

Bramble is a vegetable-eating dog who lived in the UK. Bramble held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s oldest dog at the time.

As a veggie eating dog, Bramble lived on an exclusively vegetarian diet of organic vegetables, rice, and lentils. Bramble only ate once a day and she exercised a lot.

Anne Heritage, Bramble’s owner, said she simply fed her a big vegan bowl fare every evening. As a vegan herself, Anne explains that Bramble is an inspiration. It just goes to show that if you eat the right things and keep on exercising a lot can extend your life.

Bramble’s age is considered to be 189 years old. This is because the common usage for counting dog years is equivalent to 7 dog years for every human. There are also non-vegetarian dogs who lived long such as the Australian Cattle Dog named Bluey who lived 29 years and five months.

However, you might be wondering, aren’t dogs carnivores? There are some experts who claim that dogs are scavenging carnivores. This means that they are naturally meat eaters. However, they can sustain themselves on other protein sources such as vegetables and rice.

There are other experts who say that dogs are omnivores or can live on a diet composed of fruits, vegetables as well as meat.

Nevertheless, it is amazing how this wonderful dog lived longer compared to other dogs or any breed of dog. Bramble really is an amazing dog with an amazing story.

1. Most modern Border Collies trace their lineage back to one dog. Old Hemp, born in the 1800s is considered to be the progenitor of the border collies. This dog’s herding method was less aggressive and more quiet compared to other dogs of his kind. His method always got results and impressed lots of breeders despite his softer technique. Old Hemp fathered to over 200 pups and became a famous stud dog.

2. Sheepdogs were brought to Great Britain by the Roman Empire. They were the first civilization that mastered the art of herding and raising sheep. Romans brought sheep as well as shepherds to the British Islands where they soon established the industry of wool. Most sheep-dogs which the Romans brought to Great Britain could not hack in the country’s cold weather, which is why the Celtics breed their own sheep-dogs.

3. Border Collies’ name comes from the region where they flourished. Did you know that Border Collies got their name because they were originally bred on borders of England and Scotland? James Reid, the secretary of ISS or International Sheepdog Society, is believed to have coined their name while describing the dogs in letters to his colleagues.

4. Border Collies are geniuses. It is no surprise that Border Collies are one of the smartest breeds of dogs. In fact, they are indeed on the top list of world’s smartest dogs. This is because of the fact that they were bred in order to be independent, problem solvers that are capable of solving complex tasks.

5. Yes, Border Collies are the world’s smartest dogs, however, that doesn’t mean training them is easy. Since they are known to be smart, they can pick up on anything and learn quicker than other dogs. Which is why trainer needs to train them right away just before these dogs develop any bad habits. It is applicable to train them while they are still young so that you’ll have their full attention.

8. Border collies can do “the eye”. This is one of their tricks. It is an intense stare which they usually do to intimidate the livestock and help the dogs herd as well as in controlling the animals. Sometimes, you may also catch your dog giving you this type of look just when you are about to give them something or have something in your hand.

9. Border Collies have a big dictionary. Have you heard of Chaser? She is commonly known as the world’s smartest dog. She can understand different words as well as she can name the proper noun names of his 1000 unique toys. Check out Chaser’s story here.

Yep, you read it right. Our awesome Border Collie never fails to amaze us with their amazing capabilities. Did you know that there is a record confirmed and verified by Guinness World Book of Records where the main star is a Border Collie? It is the world’s fastest car window opened by a dog which is actually recorded in just 11.34 seconds!

 

Meet Striker, a Border Collie owned by Francis V. Gadassi of Hungary. Gadassi trained Strikerunwound a non-electrical car window in just a span of 11.34 seconds.

The record was set in Quebec City, Canada on September 1, 2004.

According to Gadassi, he needed to train Striker a considerable amount of time before he could master in the first place. With years of practice and tons of dog treats waiting for Striker, he was finally able to do what most dogs couldn’t do: to open a non-electrical car window which required special training.

Some people even ask Gadassi why would he want to train his dog to do this or why did he invest so much time and effort just to teach him open the car window.

However, there is so much deeper meaning to this. One easy explanation to this is that the quicker Striker could get the window open, the better will be his chance of freedom. Through the dog’s eyes, he will have his liberty gained and now he could spend the rest of his life with his owner who did not make him open the car windows each day of his life.

This record is so bizarre that the Guinness people could only find clumsy grammar to collate the record.

However bizarre it could get, one thing is for sure. There is no stopping for our lovable Border Collies to be the world’s smartest dog ever lived. Even if it is opening a car window in a span of only 11 seconds.
