I love border collies, they are a wonderful breed, but I don't know I could handle that kind of energy. Fortunately for many owners there are great sports like agility. At the dog show last weekend more than half of the dogs entered in the competition were border collies and the amount of time and energy their owners have devoted is clearly apparent and what is even more evident is the focus and concentration that these dogs possess. There are some that get over-excited and don't follow directions but most are keenly aware of their owners and their surroundings. It looks like a lot of fun!
