Are Border Collies worth it? In my experience Border Collies make excellent family dogs. They are loving, good natured and extremely loyal. They get on well with children and they love to play. That said, Border Collies do have a herding instinct, which is the want to control the movements of animals (and sometimes humans) around them.
