Well, the 'norm' for the breed is to be a little testy with other dogs. This is not RIGHT IMO, but it is common to see poorly temperamented ACD's. Getting a dog from a breeder and doing lots of early socialization can help. I always suggest even when getting an ACD from a breeder that you ask if they allow all their dogs to run together. I personally wouldn't buy from someone who was knowingly breeding DR or DA dogs.

It doesn't say anything about it in our standard as far as the DA goes, but bull terriers/pittie type dogs went into the creation of this breed. As long as the breeder is doing their part and the owner properly socializes the dog, there "shouldn't" be a problem

Yes, but do you not agree that meeting with and living with are two very different things?

I would agree with that. If they get a puppy from a reputable breeder or rescue group they always have a way out if the puppy doesn't fit in.

I've owned 2 border collies. As has been said many times before, they do take a ton of energy and time. But if you are a high energy person, and you have other people in the family to help with his crazy active lifestyle, then I think it would be great! Ive always found too, that housebreaking and training a puppy that is high energy like that these is never as hard as one would think.

Also, I was able to train Jack to follow basic commands in just under 6 weeks. Now, he was an AMAZING dog, but I think a lot of credit goes to the intelligence of the breed as well.

I agree. It's completely different.
