Comments or anything additional you would like to add:
The Border Collie is an amazing animal, it has been said the Border Collie is the most intellingent breed. With this being said, that does not mean they are the dog for everyone. The Border Collie is an active, working dog. Every Border Collie needs a 'job'. A job can be in the form of chasing a ball everyday, playing frisbee, or working on some basic obedience cues. As long as you have the time to ensure the dog gets plenty of mental and physical exercise then the Border collie may be the dog for you. A Border Collie is not typically a couch potato, however mine do have an on and off button. If you are looking for a lap dog content to just stay in the backyard or locked up by him or helfself all the time then the Border Collie is not for you.
