Default Border Collie Q&A

Recently Jaxx's mom has been wondering about Border Collies, so I thought that I'll make a thread in case anyone else is wondering.
Feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to answer them
The answers will be answered based on Zack's behaviour (and of some other BC's I know)

No. Zack is about 1.5 years old and he is still very hyper and energetic. If you get them good exercise (let's say about an hour or a half per day) they'll be the best and calmest dogs in the world If you don't, they can get themselves into trouble, for example stealing, chewing, etc - it's just them being bored
I have heard they calm down when they're a bit older - 3 years old maybe?

(I'm not a professional as most of you know, I'm trying to answer referring to Zack and trying to help some people out if they're curious about getting a BC.)

Zack: 9/9/12 - Living like a king
