Looking for a border collie w some agility training
« on: June 10, 2013, 03:08:44 PM »
Hello,
I figured this would be a good place to start. I am looking for a female bc that is at least started training in agility. I do show in agility and familiar with the sport. However, I was looking for a new puppy, but am afraid that after the commitment she will not like agility or have other issues. So if sone has an already started dog and knows the basics (or even more)that would be great.

Please email or post info
Nicole
PS I can also provide references.

Start with border collie rescues. It's fairly common for them to have foster homes that are into agility and will start working with the dogs that are staying with them. Many breed rescues also have a very good idea of toy drive, biddability, etc. in their adult dogs.

I don't know where you live, but Border Collie Rescue of MN always has wonderful dogs available. Heck, they've had fully titled dogs go through their organization for placement in the past -- sometimes you can get lucky that way.
