Hi! :D I absolutely love the Border Collie breed. I am 14 and have a 10 year old brother. My parents and my brother and I are out during the day, usually for 7 hours while we are in school. Is there anything I could do to keep the Border Collie stimulated? I really want to have one, because I believe this is the breed that I can convince my parents to get. Please,is there anything I can do?

I have 2 border collies and I work full time, however I have a dog sitter who takes them during the day whilst I am at work. I would not take on any dog with the intention of leaving it alone all day every day. If you would really like a collie and your parents are willing to pay for someone to take care of it during the day or pop in to your home and take it for walks, then go for it but please do not leave it alone all day. Border collies are extremely high driven and need a lot of exercise, time and love. They are not bred to be left alone in a house.
