sadly, but i don't have any last year i had one reserved at the netherlands, but something went wrong and because i was without a dog, i couldn't wait any longer and now i have an irish soft coated wheaten terrier. my best friend has a border collie (actually lots of my friends own them) so i'm a lot around them. i hate that in slovenia they've became so popular
yes, mostely they are wanted from girls around 13, because they want the best dog in agility. and i can't understand that why they would like the best dog in agility, for me is the most important that agility is fun and not competition. and there is lots of border collies that don't have enough of work or this is their first dog and they don't know how to rise them. so yes, there is alot of new owners who aren't serious enough it's sad. i don't know yet and i'm no longer in contact with evelin :/ for me they are great dogs, i love their pashion for work and they're full of energy. i've put 8 years in studying them, but now when i know lots of border collies, i don't know if this breed is right for me. there is lots of them who are hysterical and have problematical character and i don't like that. and also they are so gentle and i'm used of terriers. well i could live with them but i don't know if this is still perfect breed for me. right now i have plans for another airedale terrier in 3-4 years and than we'll see which will be my next dog, maybe that will be a border collie maybe something other.
maybe it's the breeder's responsibility to judge whether the potential new owner is serious and experienced enough or not, but I don't know, I'm not a breeder I've found BCs to be very sensitive to their surroundings, that's why they can be taught so well, and it's the same reason that might make them whiny and hysterical if not treated well. I have a labrador and her soul is rock solid, she's content with her life and you cant do shit to make her panic or be depressed, and that's good, but at the same time I have a much harder time trying to get her motivated to try new stuff. but I love challenges, so whatever
yes, it should be the breeder's responsibility to judge, but some of them don't there are breeders who will give puppies to everybody, even to a very old lady who can't walk normally anymore xD and some of them also knows that some puppy is problematic and they give it to somebody that this is his first dog and haven't expeirences to rise a puppy like that. and because of that there are dogs who aren't in the right hands i don't say that border collies aren't for people that never had a dog, but i wouldn't give them a puppy that would be problematic in anyway. but also there are also breeders who will give puppies just to those who are serious agility competitors and that i don't like either, because there are also people who want to start with agility or have dogs in other sports or something like that. well i've always had terriers and they need better motivation too, but i can't say that they are because of that less trainable. if you know their motivation they can be taught the same as border collies or more. but borders want to do more and because of that they usually know more tricks and so on and also there is alot of people that they haven't enough of energy or they don't know how to motivate their dogs and becase breeds like that aren't so workaholic they arent taght so much. and because of their sensitivity i don't know anymore if borders are still the right breed for me :/
