Report Training Border Collies for bird control work in General Border Collie Discussion Posted June 27, 2015 Just to note- the search function will often bring back 'no results found', and if you wait about twenty seconds and try again often the results will come up the next time. I'm still getting no search results on that subject. Can anyone share their stories of training border collies in this way? Mine is about 20 months old. She has had a start in livestock and is very well trained and socialized. Thanks!
