How Much Exercise Does a Border Collie Need?

Border collies require a minimum of two 45-minute walks per day. Bred as tough working dogs, they have boundless stamina, and they love any activity that allows them to use up their boundless energy.

Therefore, for border collies leisurely walks are not enough. Border collies need to race, jump, and chase. They perform exceptionally well in agility competitions, so if you have access to a circuit or a dog park where they can race around with canine companions, this will provide the mental stimulation they also crave.

Because of their need for activity, border collies thrive in households with plenty of outdoor spaces nearby where they can play and explore.
