  1. Like I said in my original post I do not know much about choosing a good breeder, I turned to this forum for advice and help, but I still don't quite understand. I have gotten some good advice, but for the most part all I am reading is how sport bred dogs are not good or are not "real" BC's and herding bred dogs are good... but... WHY? I just need someone to better elaborate for me. I am not as experienced as all of you in this field, so pardon me if I don't quite understand your reasonings.
  2. Now what if I am interested in doing agility, obedience, etc. I mean if I were to get a BC I would make plans for the BC to herd, but I don't have personal sheep of my own, so I don't "need" a BC to actually herd for me. I still do not see why BC's bred for herding are better than bred for sports. What if some people want a BC that is better at agility rather than herding>
  3. I know I asked previously about Hob Nob, and I did get the same response. I do not understand, though. Why don't they "work" and because they are AKC registered you don't like them? Like I have said I do not know anything about picking a good breeder, please enlighten me,
  4. Hey All! I have been searching for a good BC breeder near me. I think I may have found a good one: Contact Border Collies. If you guys could give me some feedback on the breeder I would really appreciate it! Or you could direct me to a better or recommended breeder. I am looking for a well bred, and healthy dog. Classic looks, rough coat, B/W. I can't go more than 800-900 in price, and preferably drivable from Southern California, or travel fees not costly. Thanks!!
  5. Hello! I am new here. I am a member of the the GSD forum, germanshepherd.com, but they couldn't help me on this question. I am looking around for a good BC breeder, and I found one awhile ago that I just love. The dogs are beautiful, good at agility, and it just seems like a nice little family rather than a breeder. The breeder is Hob Nob Border Collies; www.hobnobbordercollies.com . I can't really decide whether a breeder is good or not, but I just really like this one. Jan DeMello, the breeder, seems like she really loves her dogs, and loves what she does. Well, please just give me some feedback! Thanks!
