We have 3 dogs that all live in our house and one of them is a border collie. They have access thru a doggie door to a fenced in lot but we take them out every day to run free for excerise.One of our dogs is a GSP who likes to run off to chase wildlife when they are out but our border collie herds him back when we call for him to come in. Considering he is half the size of our GSP it is so fun to watch him work. He has made a great house dog and was easier to housebreak than the others.

You could train your border collie. Just let it outside ONLY when it needs to go to the restroom. Thats how I trained my Border Collie.
