Borador: Labrador & Border Collie


The Borador is a cross between a purebred Border Collie and a Labrador Retriever. Like the majority of other designer dogs, this is a so-called F1 or first generation mix, meaning that the mom and dad are always two purebred dogs. Boradors go by several names, including Border Collie Lab and Border Lab.

Most Boradors are so outgoing that they will often greet any stranger with a wag of their tail. This makes them better as companions than as watchdogs.

The pup’s Border Collie instincts could take hold, and they may try to herd smaller family members, be it children or other animals. Any nipping related to herding tendencies can be easily curbed with positive reinforcement and training.

Boradors are generally great with kids, other pets, and all members of the family. Playtime between dogs and kids, as always, should be supervised.
