|Thanks Dilly. I'll keep that in mind.
Well Selli, so far my agility experience is pretty limited. I have trained dogs very casually in agility at home, but I have yet to take a class or compete in a trial. I want to go further, but it's just never been in the cards for me so far... I don't know if I want to go for the National Agility Championship yet, I'll have to think more on that one. But, I will need help finding a breeder if I do decide on a sport bred Border Collie. Drive and athletic ability are important to me, but a stable temperament and good health is even more important.
And I'm aware of that Sarah. I had heard of the rift between show and working breeders when I was looking at getting a Border before I rescued Pippi (I decided that, at the time, we weren't in the position for a Border Collie). But, since I do want to show in conformation, I will probably be looking at an AKC show/performance breeder rather than a working breeder.
