Hi, I've always wanted to have a border collie as a pet, but always thought they would require a lot of exercise (a few hours a day which I just can't afford with my job). A breeder told me that the fact that border collies need a lot of exercise is a myth that came from old books written in the time that most border collies were specifically bred for herding. He said that they can even be kept in apartments if you provide enough stimulation and activities. Is this true?
Yes, any dog can be kept in an apartment if you provide sufficient stimulation, but Border Collies needing exercise is not a myth.
