Report Fear of noon-time in General Border Collie Discussion Posted May 30, 2014 Thanks! We're just not used to having to deal with vet issues. All our other dogs are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and they have one thing in common: They are absolutely fearless. Lack of fear is even part of the breed standard for cavs. So going to the vet has never been an issue. They more or less jump up on the table and greet the vet with a wagging tail. Border Collies, apparently, not so much. At least not our girl. She's just very emotional about everything and she's decided that the vet is the scariest thing there is. We'll work on it. She's such a great girl and she deserves anything we can do to make her experience less traumatic.
