    This is a great book for first time Border Collie owners. We adopted a dog identified only as a Collie mix from our local shelter. After attending a pet expo and encountering some Border rescue people they insisted he was definitely a Border. I started looking for some books about Borders and after reading this one it really became clear that we do have a Border! I really appreciated the facts of some of the idiosyncrasies of this breed such as how they are not big eaters and how they are such escape artists, something our dog definitely proved in the first days that we had him! While this book doesn’t go into great detail on advanced training it is perfect for first time owners and gives a lot of great information.

    A Nice Book on Border Collies, June 26, 2002

    Overall, I would say that this book is good, but nothing special. It does have good information on the Border Collie and their history as well as awesome pictures and illustrations. However, the book is mainly made up of general information on training, dog sports, nutrition, health, and breeding which could be found in many other books. I would have liked to see more specific information pertaining to the breed itself and/or herding.

    I adopted two border collies before I knew what I had gotten myself into. This book gave me a greater insight into the nature and mindset of the breed. If I had this book before I got my dogs, I would have saved myself some time and frustration. This is an excellent book, with practical information. It is straightforward and enjoyable to read.
