Question by  nick36 (5)

Are Border Collies good pets?

I like the look of them but have nothing to herd.


Answer by  Teresa32 (314)

Border Collies make excellent pets. Because they are of the working dog breed they need to have plenty of room to run and exercise. Agility courses are great for Border Collies but if thats not possible, chasing tennis balls or catching frisbees work pretty well. Of course you can let them herd you for practice.

These are wonderful dogs but the herding instinct has been bred into them for the past 200 years. You must be familiar with their herding instinct.They are not good in a house with running kids. They will herd the kids and may give them a nip.

Border Collies can be great pets if you have the time and energy for them. They are extremely high energy and needs at least an hour of exercise a day. They are also very smart so you need to provide them with mental stimulation as well.
