The Border Collie is a very hyper and active dog that has to have a job to do or he will drive you crazy. The Afghan Hound, on the other hand, can be a more mellow breed. When the two are combined, the Afghan Hound’s temperament will hopefully temper that of the Border Collie giving you a dog that is devoted, intelligent, and active but with an off switch; meaning he can play hard but also take the time to relax in the home. Your dog will need at least 60 minutes of solid activity to ensure he is able to distress and relax at home. Long hikes or even running laps around the yard are good ways to keep your dog active, however, dog sports would be ideal for his type of personality.
