Probably a stupid questions but will your doggie “herd” the baby when he/she is a toddler? Like a “canine play-pen?”
Two 14 year old BC’s bro & sister, mom & dad from Wales, one two year BC from Miss,they herd any and everything. Old male works counter clockwise, female herds clockwise. Have to put them up after about 30 minutes when grand kids are in the pool, or they will run until pads on feet are bleeding. Female was for grand kids in New Orleans, no running room, so
I brought her back to Alabama with me,when she was 3 years old. We took her back down to stay with grand daughter for a couple of weeks. As we started to leave, she jumped thru open window into my wife’s lap to avoid getting left.
She just might Lol!
