Eydol Posted January 21, 2007 Report Share Posted January 21, 2007 Alright i just have a couple questions. I'm thinking about getting a Border Collie, and already just from the research i've been doing i'm already dreading the obtaining of one. I want to go with a reputable breeder but it seems like none will greet anyone who doesn't live on a ranch with open arms. I'm actually self employed and work from the home so i have lots of free time to spend with my boys. I've also trained and had quite a few labs, which from what i've heard of BC's can be the same nightmare when not excersized and stimulated. I've actually watched a number or herding trails and thought they were extremely interesting and wish i could partake. So are there actual facilities where i can train and excersize my dogs herding abilities without actually owning or living on a ranch? I mean i realize that they might be a ways out but i've searched and searched and i haven't found any concrete facilities where this is offered. I mean i would love to take an hour or two drive once or twice a week out to somewhere we he could get his 'herd-on', and as stated earlier i'm used to the daily runs (i live close to a dog park) so the physical aspect isn't really holding me back. Also if herding is impossible are agility trials and games enough mental stimulation? Some of these questions may be ignorant, if any are taken as such i am sorry. Any help on knowing the answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
