If you are just going out for a HIT, he will be fine, but training for both could be a problem.
AKC C-Course, this is the border style, like HGH (TENDING) 25-300 sheep.
We don't have this style up here, we have A-Course (Border Collie) 3 sheep.
When I took Deejay for his HIT @ 14 months he just loved it, he was a wild man.
The Judge said that he had very high drive & was 1st dog that did not respect her and turn off.
She was putting pressure on him to back him up, she tried hitting him with the paddle he grabbed it.
She stomped her feet and waved and yell at him to get him to back up, he just stood his ground (good for SchH).
He's no Border Collie thats for sure all GSD.
He got in a few good full grips on the neck and rump and ran the ass off a few sheep also.
He had one by the rump and held on, the Judge went nuts.
Told me we had to break him of griping the sheep so we never went back.
