Heather Rae Posted December 23, 2011 Report Share Posted December 23, 2011 Okay, now, hopefully I don't step on anyone's toes or anything like that, but I have some questions (hopefully none are deemed inappropriate). I'm finally getting serious about obtaining a pup or dog after years of reading. 1. First off, for some reason I am having a very difficult time finding any sheepdog trials, is there some websites that can give me some dates/locations? I've tried googling "sheepdog trials" but I really didn't get far. I'm hoping to stay within 200 miles of Southern California (in case any of you are aware of some So Cal events). 2. I've read/been told that these events might lead me to a good breeder, is this true? I'm a little shy of harassing someone about their dogs and even more afraid and unsure of how to ask about breeding, any tips? 3. If I do find a breeder/s what should I ask them and what should I expect them to ask? 4. Is asking about the price of a pup considered that rude? Is it something I should completely refrain from asking? 5. Is it very likely that I will be declined by breeders/rescues because I would like a Border Collie as a pet and it would be my first time owning one?
