alligande Posted February 23, 2015 Report Share Posted February 23, 2015 This weekend I spent sometime with 3 world agility team members and a coach from a couple of different European countries and we were talking about their dogs. A couple of them had chosen to go with true working bred for their newest dogs as opposed to dogs from agility lines because they felt that the agility bred dogs were missing parts of the package, mostly the ability to be calm. After all the conversations we have had in these forums about only breeding for working ability etc and the growth of sport collies, it was nice to here top level competitors thinking along the same lines. This was especially true after I spent the last 10 days with a dog who came from a breeder who has been flagged on these boards as not great for numerous reasons... she is very sweet, but maybe the most insane border collie I have lived with yet and that includes our fosters who came out the shelter with baggage. My husband used to call her "crazy shopping cart lady" now he has upgraded to her "bat shit crazy". Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
