Border Collie Sleep does actually happen
As I mentioned in the last post I’ve become a bit concerned that this site has been a little bit on the “gloomy” side when it comes to discussions on the breed. I wanted to get a few things up to show you it’s really not all that bad. This really is the best dog I’ve ever had and I’d not change a thing. In talking with other owners of the breed this seems to be a common feeling. As for the energy level…
…it is the problem most consider “Problem #1″ with having to run all that energy out. It’s like a battery on a charger that you can’t shut off. You just have to run off some of the juice on a consistent basis. But don’t worry too much about it… there is hope. A deep Border Collie sleep like what you see below is a result of a few mile walk and a good long game of tennis ball throwing…
Here is concrete proof that they do, in fact, sleep. We call this “Ned’s Couch” and we find him here late at night when he’s tired out. He really sleeps like this…it’s a little weird. But it comes at the price of that few mile walk and “throw the ball over and over” time. This, also, is no big deal…chances are you need the exercise too!
A fellow Border Collie owner put it really well the other day. “This breed seems to do everything full out.”
It’s true, when these guys are awake they are AWAKE and ready to go, go, go. When they sleep they don’t mess around…they really sleep.
The resting puppy above is a result of a steady steam of exercise and stuff to do but it really is not all that horrible. Yeah, it can be a challenge but it’s well worth it!
