Border Collie based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
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.
Covers everything you need to know about your Border Collie.
Good information for beginning dog owners. Great photos and illustrations. Fun and informative.
