Calm before the storm?
We have a new pup. She has been with us for one month now and is great. I have been reading about Border Collies and most has been negative as in a lot of biting, bad with other pets, etc. We have young kids and a cat. So far, at four months she is very submissive when we meet a dog walking, plays outside with the kids well, was house trained very easily as in almost instantly as she was a farm dog and had never been in a house before. Why do I feel so worried? So far, exercise is 1/2 hour walk in the morning, later in the day - 1 hour outside run/play/fetch time with the kids and then a 1/2 hour walk at night. She is also submissive to the cat and will back off instantly when she gets too hyper at playtime (when told, of course). Am I crazy?
