Yeahhh my Biggest Waste of Money seminar, by far, was with a person who has only ever had BCs. A person who has been extremely successful on the national and international stage and who is touted as an excellent educator. Who had no flippin clue how to help the non-BC/non-BC-like dogs in the seminar...in a class that was mostly non-BCs.
Mine was oddly not the seminar mentioned above. It was with a trainer who is also a judge, who I had heard would be great because "she doesn't just run BCs! She has a (breed removed because it might make the person too obvious)!" I didn't find out until after the seminar that she told a friend that she only runs the Other Breed at indoor trials, because the dog won't run for her outdoors.

The other sign of a good instructor (in my opinion, now that I'm in full rant mode) is that their response to "I'm not going to get there for the front cross" can't be "well run faster". How's about you help me figure out a way to handle this line that I can do? My favorite seminar person puts that out pretty much at the beginning of the lesson. "I will never tell you to run faster, because I will assume you are doing your best. We'll find a different way to make things work."

I am very glad our main trainer here started with malamutes and has trained many breeds (including a border collie but also Belgians, a cur, a sporting breed etc). My current trainer has only had BCs and wants to get something else to become a better trainer

And papillons in themselves are biddable and fun and many times drivey dogs. Border collies have nothing to do with it.
Oh that reminds me of a rant I put up on FB about a month ago lol....

Mini Rant of the Day

When my retriever kicks ass, it's not because she's like a Border Collie. It's because she's a Kickass Retriever. She is not the only Kickass Retriever out there. The many others are also awesome for who they are, not because of their Border Collie Relativity Rating.

I really like a lot of BCs and a lot of BC people but some of them, sometimes...

/rant
:P

Lets be honest, you wish your dogs were all border collies.

Haters.

I'm going to use that phrase forever "cute, but not desirable".

ETA: nevermind.

The long story is that I was having a hard time keeping her focus at the end of the day, and for a few seconds she was all "Hi judge hi hi hi have we met??" and my friends were chuckling and the lady next to them was watching too and shook her head and said in an extremely annoyed tone "Cute but not desirable" Ooops.

But my next dog might be one. Hard to say at this point. I waffle back and forth a lot.
