    To the roleplaying children here: The reviews section is NOT for

    To the roleplaying children here: The reviews section is NOT for roleplaying. There are plenty of other sites on the internet designated specifically for that purpose. I know the RP "reviews" are old, but they can still be seen.

    That being said, I found this book to be a very useful guide, aside from the parts that seemed like advertisements for Nylabone products. I would definitely recommend it to owners new to the world of Border collies.
