Thinking about a Border Collie? There are many things to consider:

  • Are you ready to care for a Border Collie for the rest of his or her life? Be sure you're ready to make a lifelong commitment to your pet.

  • Are you financially prepared to support a Border Collie? The cost of purchasing or adopting a dog is only the start. Don't forget dog food, toys, treats, bedding, routine and emergency veterinary care, and kennel expenses if no one will be able to care for your dog when you go away.

  • Will you be able to exercise your Border Collie once or twice a day? Border Collies are high-energy dogs and need daily exercise to burn off that excess energy.

  • If you're a parent, do you want a Border Collie just as much as your children do, and are you prepared to provide the majority of its care? Don't make the mistake of getting a dog "for the kids" and assuming they will take care of it. You will have the ultimate responsibility. And if your children are toddlers, are you prepared to supervise all interaction between them? This is an absolute necessity in order to prevent accidental nipping or worse.
