  1. Thank you Gloria, That is something I learned through a fellow border collie owner a few months ago. How you can also mentally exhaust the dog in order to wear her out a bit! My fiance and I have both had dogs our entire lives, labs for her, mixes for me, and it blows my mind how intelligent these little Border Collies are! She picks up tricks insanely quick, but then tries to guess what you are going to tell her next so you have to keep mixing it up! She keeps us guessing that's for sure! I wouldn't trade her for the world at the point. This breed just keeps blowing me away with the intelligence and agility!
  2. Thank you for all of the replies. It makes me feel much better knowing that she is still within her size limits. I personally love her size, I think she is perfect. Being new to the breed I know everyone talked about how active they are, but I never thought it would be like this! Fetch with the frisbee and ball is non-stop and after she is worn out a bit from that then we tend to go for a walk or a job and she still wants more. It seems that she will literally go until she drops so I try to put an end to it when I know she is getting tired rather than letting her find her limit. Very loving and won't leave my side though which is my favorite trait and one I wouldn't trade for the world. I have been doing a lot of reading and I am glad I joined the forum! So much information to take in and learn from. Currently looking at either getting Olive to do some agility runs or get her more into frisbee and there is plenty to read about both on the site. Thank you!
  3. Hello All, My BC, Olive, is just over 13 months and 27 lbs. She hasn't grown in a few months and while she appears to be very healthy, I can't help but notice she still seems then, I encourage her to eat and drink plenty, however she stays relatively the same size. This is my first BC and I am madly in love with the breed now. I am not sure if it is just the breed I am not used to size-wise or not. I did some searching, but it's always hard to tell through other posts what the "right" size should be. Thank you in advance!
