I want a border collie so bad bros

I'm a 26 year old recently single guy, I'm very fitness/outdoors orientated and feel like a BC would be perfect for me
Has anybody ever had positive interactions with them?

    i grew up with them in a working farm environment
    theyre good smart dogs and perfect on the farm but i dont think id want one as a pet
    theyre just not that much fun

    there are plenty of active smart breeds of dog out there that have way better personalities than the yessir bootlicker border collie

        ya im thinking ill probably get a husky/husky mix when i can finally settle into my new house in rural northern canada
        im currently working away from home and travelling a lot so my portable jack russel mix is perfect for me right now

        i honestly think hes smarter than a collie he just uses his wits for mishchief and machiavellianism
        which i personally find a lot more amusing than rote obedience

    I was gifted a border collie. I do have a backyard, but I doubt it's big enough. I'm too busy and can't walk it often, I regret not giving it the life it deserves.
    I wouldn't recomend having one unless you have a farm or something, because you never know what will happen and you might not be able to give it all the exercise and attention it needs.

      go on YT and search for channels where people document what they do with theirs. see if those activities jive with you. then try to get IRL exp with them before you commit. they are quite common at dog parks. just chat people up. generally speaking, you'll want to spend about 2hrs minimum a day doing highish intensity exercise that's also highly mentally stimulating: Treibball, high level obedience, fetch, tug, dog on dog spcialiation play, hikes, runs, walks, nosework, memorization games, puzzle games are just a few things people do with their dogs depending on the age, health status and individual temperament of the dog. make sure you ahve plenty of free open and safe spaces like parks etc available to you to go do those activities. also, 2hrs a day in a commitment. it gets real old real fast to ahve to get out to play with your dog at 0500 in the moning, in January, at -15°C.

    You sound like a good match for a border collie since they need plenty of exercise. From my experience with my old bc (rip) her intelligence was hilarious when she would come close to outsmarting me, which did happen at least once.

    Why would you get a highly specialized working dog that obsessively performs a specific instinct every day as long as its awake as a housepet?

    Herding is instinct. They never stop doing it.

    Don’t get a herding dog if you don’t have at least an acre of land.

        You are right. Should be 10 acres minimum. How many acres do you own?

          None and I have a Heeler that is ready to pass the public access test, he is more obedient and trained than any herding dog you will ever meet. Open spaces do nothing to help high energy working dogs. You are also an absolute fuckwit, do you know what herding dogs do out on those massive Australian farms? They work for short periods, then get put in a cage that is elevated off the ground, where they stay until they work again, they do not get free roam of the farm. Space and freedom will give you a feral untrained dog that doesn't respect you at all, stick to cats you fucken gay

            Whatever helps you sleep at night, kid. Your animal is not suitable to your pathetic small (or non-existant) land holdings, and thats a form of neglect.

            My dog is well trained and has space and freedom. Not a service robot that doesnt walk without permission though, just well behaved. Structurefags get the leash.

                Always with dog owners. “Fido didnt sit right when he was told just because i told him! Ive been disrespected and insulted!” Imagine having your ego wrapped up in whether or not an animal does totally pointless shit for no reason

                for most people that is the only reason they got a dog instead of a cat.

    Yes, many. I prefer Australian Cattle Dogs though, as they aren’t emotionally sensitive like Collies and can put up with me a lot better

        Not for me, my Heeler is fucken awesome and he is never weary of me just because I randomly yell shit at nobody when I have flashbacks, a Collie or a Lab would would never bond with me the way my Heeler has, he was bred to bully an animal up to twenty times his size while it kicks him in the face and to not care, he doesn’t care that I yell at my memories

          In my experience they're dumb fucks who just bark at everything.

          BCs are a lot smarter than aus cattle dogs.

            Kek, in what way? My Heeler is only eight months old and has been able to fetch items with inference only for ages now

    Lots. They're a lot of work but honestly the jump from no dog to dog is bigger than the jump from a lazy breed to an active breed. If you do it right you'll have no problems. I have some family members who work full time, have a family and own borders who are very well trained and well taken care of. You'll be fine.
    My only advice is maybe dont go for championship sport-herding lines. They tend to have been bred for neuroticism rather than workability.
