ScoutTS Posted May 16, 2013 Report Share Posted May 16, 2013 Please forgive me if I posted this under the wrong category; I could seem to find one that fit. I'm rather new to the world of working border collies- having read and studied and audited clinics (without having a border collie to work with) for a few years now. I am looking for a trained dog and am excited about the possibilities- and have a few good leads. I'm lucky to have a few mentors that are helping to guide me through the process. Oddly, I find myself confused about the right amount of eye that is desirable in a dog. I've seen very successful dogs (from a trial and practical perspective) described as having "very little eye", as if that is a good thing. Although I have also seen dogs with too much eye, it seems like those dogs are far less common. I would think that some eye is desirable; it is one of the hallmarks of the breed and it looks very stylish, too. So what is it about the eye? Is it a matter of personal preference? I have also heard that eye gets stronger as the dog matures, but a few other people have told me that is an old wives' tale. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
