Border Collies are bred to be herding dogs and this is not just a minor trait. The herding instinct in this breed is what they are all about! As our Border Collie was growing up he quickly started to “herd” my wife and I.
There is much to be said for the herding instinct of the Border Collie and the pure intensity that comes along with it. You’ve probably seen videos of these dogs while they work and there is no doubt that every fiber of their being is focused on the task at hand.
As our Border Collie puppy began to grow up, and grow up quickly, we noticed an odd thing he did once in a while.
You’ve probably seen pictures and videos of Border Collies herding sheep or cattle either on a farm or in a competition.
