Pam Wolf Posted January 11, 2012 Report Share Posted January 11, 2012 The discussion ongoing about the cattle dog trials has prompted this. What is the future of the working Border Collie? Is it to be a working dog that can work cattle or sheep or is it to be divided (yet again) into those dogs that work cattle and those that can only work sheep? I fear a split will not be in the best interest of the breed. I can see those dogs being called cow dogs loosing many of the traits that make the Border Collie so special when it comes to working livestock and the sheep trial only dogs getting to a point where they are not good farm/ranch dogs.
