I read this today after it was posted on Facebook. Very interesting and quite true when it comes to our wonderful border collies.

I posted this a while back - but it is a great read....maybe could be made into a Sticky?
So useful for people to understand where their 'pet' collie behaviours come from.

That's a great article, thanks for sharing! It'd be wonderful if more people who were considering getting a Border collie would read something like this first, as it seems so many have no clue what they're getting into when they get one (many people choose a breed for looks and nothing else). It would help new Border owners with the 'why is my dog doing this?' question, and might even prevent some BCs from winding up in shelters or rescues. /wtg
