Which of these dogs is the most drivey, charged, crazy, willing-to-do-whatever-you-want workaholic? I know the Border collie is smarter, but which of the two is easier trained? I heard Mal can be quite stubborn at first. I really want a dog that can get up and go, 0-1000 mph whenever you want it to for whatever reason, and who will do and think everything with full heart. I really want to do all sorts of dog sports, and that includes teaching silly tricks to my dog. I want a dog that will never tire, and which one of the two bonds more closely with it's owner?
