Long ago we had a border collie shepherd cross pup. She needed more activity than we could give her so we gave her to a fellow with cattle. She had the cattle rounded up and in before he had a chance to train her so it seems at least the smart ones know what to do on instinct.Way back when I had my border collie mix I always wondered how successful herding sheep she could do on her instinct alone without training. She was awesome about rounding up my foster dogs for me. Anything that moved caused her to nip at heels. She was the best babysitter around never had to worry where anyone was. Living in the city really wasn’t ideal for her, but I got inventive with games and other things to keep her mind active and sharp. I miss her but knew when she passed I could never keep up With another Not where I live.
