I'm looking into getting my first ever dog, I've took a small part of my time to research into the dogs. I've found that the recommended amount of exercise for a border collie can be up to roughly 2 - 4 hours a day?! I'm really interested in getting one however, if I'm not keeping it happy I don't want it to be upset if one hour walks a day isn't enough! This is were a yellow lab comes in, I've found along with the Golden Retrievers these are brilliant house dogs with much less needed exercise (1 hour a day). Am I not suitable to care for a Border Collie if I'm limited to walking it 1 hour a day with home attention, and is the Yellow lab more for me?
First time on the forums, feedback appreciated, thank you!
