The Border Collie – playful and smart

Border Collie, German Shepherd, Dachshund, Pug… There are many hundreds of dog breeds. And how different they all look! Hard to imagine that they all have the same ancestors. Today we’ll show you how to draw a Border Collie. These dogs are especially playful and curious. They are also very smart! If you have a Border Collie as a pet, you should spend a lot of time with them. Then you can teach them some great tricks. Because this cute dog learns quickly!

Drawing a Border Collie step by step

The journey to your own Border Collie drawing isn’t so far. Simply follow our step-by-step drawing guide.

First, all you need to do is draw a circle. And then below it, draw a larger oval, roughly twice as tall as the upper circle. In the next step, the dog even gets its eyes and its snout. The snout looks a bit like a three lying on its back, don’t you think? Additionally, draw a curve on the bottom end of the long oval, on both the left and right sides. Below the oval, add two small circles. These will later become the front paws of the Border Collie. 

Look closely at each image in the drawing guide to see which lines are added. You can identify the new lines by their pink color. Still unsure about the process? Refer to our guide.

Special tips for your drawing:

For the Border Collie, the fluffy fur is particularly characteristic. So, at the end, you can make all the lines a bit jagged when tracing your pencil drawing with a fine liner. But be careful! Eyes, nose, and snout should remain smooth lines. Otherwise, your dog might look strange.

Additionally, what clearly distinguishes the Border Collie is its black-and-white coloring. The animal typically has a white belly and a white snout. An important detail is the white stripe that goes from the snout up over the forehead. The front legs and hind paws are also white. You can color the rest of the dog black or dark brown.
