    That sounds adorable. Will you be entering him in agility competitions when he is older ? :)

    Think I might, he loves obstacle courses so agility would be right up his street lol.

    I hate to tell you but what you have described is a pretty normal young border collie. They don't stop and they also destroy everything in sight.

    My youngest is now 11 month old. I'm retired and my dogs get a lot of exercise and a lot of training but that hasn't stopped the youngster digging holes, chewing furniture, etc. etc.

    Training most certainly tires them out far more than physical exercise but........they are collies.
