Border collies are super assume dogs. I dont have a collie but we have a Shetland Sheepdog, often known as the Sheltie. I walk in large field behind my house and let him run off a distance and call him and he always comes straight back. When just walking off leash he will walk in a zigzag pattern about 6 feet ahead of me. I always wondered if that was herding instinct at work. I was wondering your opinion on Sheltie's being working herding dogs? I see online that border collies and sheltie's have alot of common traits. Thank you
