nick19 Posted October 28, 2020 Report Share Posted October 28, 2020 Hello! I have multiple questions. So we have a 1,600sq foot 2 story house with no yard and we live in a residential area. we are a relatively active family and enjoy the great outdoors. I would love a jogging buddy and someone who could potentially protect me if I am ever in need. I actually grew up with a chihuahua and am a huge dog lover. Chihuahua's arn't very cuddly hahaha so I would also love to have a dog that does not mind cuddling! I have been researching and found that boarder collies are highly intelligent and extremely energetic. I was wondering if a 11 minute jog with about 30ish minutes of off leash time at a dog park and a 20 minute walk per day would be enough for a boarder collie due to its energy? We would be looking at about an 1 hr of exercise per day in the mornings. We also like to go out on the weekends and I am not sure if they are comfortable with staying alone in a house for about 6-8hrs sometimes. I am a senior in college and am looking at going off to medical school in about 2 years. I would either love to take him along or have him stay with my parents sort of as a replacement for when I'm gone haha. Are there any experienced border collie owners that could offer some advise as to whether this breed would be a good match or if there are other medium sized dogs out there that would also make a great match? advise would be greatly appreciated!
