A remarkably bright workaholic, the Border Collie is an amazing dog—maybe a bit too amazing for owners without the time, energy, or means to keep it occupied. These energetic dogs will settle down for cuddle time when the workday is done.

The Festival offers an interesting demonstration of the herding skills of the Border Collie. Bailey family of Red Creek Farm, demonstrators.
