Do make sure you take the pup to training classes. As you say, a very intelligent breed, but that means also easily bored. We took ours for about three years, and she still could do with going more. They are really cute and cuddly as pups but also their intelligence means they will try and work their way up the pack as they get older, so make sure your daughter is also "trained" in ways of demonstrating that the dog is below her in the pecking order (a good dog trainer will be able to advise exactly how). Our Border Collie is fantastic with kids, but I still would not leave her alone with anyone under 7 - she's never done a thing to a child, but the dogs are very quick and if they react to something, and a child is in the way, they don't give a lot of warning! The books will tell you that a border collie is not really an ideal breed for small kids - ours were 7 and 9 when we got her, and it's only now, about four years later, that my son has learnt how to assert himself with her!
