I've had a few. Pretty much just a hard headed Border Collie with teeth. All but one of mine were good dogs.

Great dogs. I have a male about 7 yr old and I lost a female 8 yr old a couple of years ago, she was just the most faithfull dog just devoted to me. They have very strong natural instincts and just live for work.

Do they bark a lot while working?

Most of the ones I've been around are kind of hyper with one working speed, wide open.
The good ones though, were amazing.
Thanks for replies.

Mine haven't barked while working, only give a bit of a yelp/growl when they go in hard to bite one on the nose.
