We are going tomorrow to look at some Border Collies that are almost a year old. The man who is selling them teaches people and dogs to herd. Well, the people don't do the herding but you know what I mean. Is it good to buy a dog that isn't a young pup? It would be nice to be herding more quickly but will a year old collie still bond with us? I didn't know we had someone around here that did this...It will be interesting to at least meet him.
