Welcome to chaz! I have a Border Collie mix and planning on getting a purebred for agility/stockwork/therapy in 2/3 years

I can't get enough of Nala, Herschel! We need some more pics *hint hint*

Ouch!

Most all the BC people on here are highly against showing borders. They were originally bred to work(as you probably already know), and most people who are showing are breeding for looks and not working. Working border people are fighting to keep the working BC lines strong, and to keep the AKC out of the lines too. When you breed for showing, you are getting rid of the working lines more and more.

I don't have a border collie, but I used to have a border collie / lab mix. She was so incredibly smart and upbeat!

I have a Border Collie x named Millie. She's brilliant. My next dog I plan to be another BC, probably rescue. I want to do herding trails, though. Millie was born with a lot of herding instinct but my mom always discouraged it.

Our Gracie is a BC mix..she is a high energy dog.. My hubby and I have often thought about getting her into the agility training & Competitions..or the jump retrieving...She's a rocket when you cut her loose and let her run!

Here she is before we got her coat cut short..

Your dog herds your cats? Poor kitties. Mine won't tolerate that behavior and I make a point to discourage it.

Um, not to mention that dogs don't work cats at herding trials. Has he ever been on actual sheep?
