My boyfriend is really attracted to Border Collies and would like to get one in the next few months or so. I just called a breeder to inquire about her available puppies and she asked me if I live in the city. When I said yes, she said that she prefers to sell her pups to country homes only because they're really not suited to city living so I'm "out of luck." My question is: Do all of you BC owners live on a farm/acreage? I thought that a BC would do fairly well if given a lot of exercise daily (which he is planning to do) and kept busy. Does the size of the yard really matter that much? There are many dog parks in his area and he plans on bringing the dog there everyday as well as running with him. What do you think? PS - My friend owns one in the city, has a small fenced yard, and the dog in my opinion is doing really well. With adequate exercise, of course.
