Warren competes with his BCs at trials around the country and has run in nine USBCHA National Finals and many regional championships. He has put on numerous trials and helped organize many regional finals competitions. He has twice been a director for the USBCHA and has held many positions in the Northeast Border Collie Association.

He also said he had no doubt the dogs learned specific words.

Fifteen to 30 minutes a day a few times a week is all the time anyone needs to have a well-trained  dog, regardless of breed, according to Warren Mick.
He should know. On Saturday, Mick and his dog, Dale, placed second in the open class at the  Leatherstocking Sheepdog Trials. The competition took place at the Robert F. Clark field on Beaver  Meadow Road in Cooperstown.
Mick is a retired General Electric engineer who lives in Altamont. Twenty years ago he began  participating in sheepdog trials, and since then, it's become one of his favorite pastimes.
"We got [a border collie] from my sister, and it was just gonna be a pet," Mick explained. "And then I  happened to meet a guy who was avid in competitions and training. We were thinking of getting a  second dog, so we got this second dog and it was a fairly well-bred dog, you know, from herding lines.
He said, 'You've got this well-bred herding dog, you better train it.' That's how we got started."
Genetics is the most important quality to consider when looking for a potential competition Border collie, Mick says, but temperament is also crucial.
"You want a dog that has a real stable temperament that can focus. They're not distractible and also something you can live with," Mick explained.
Cheryl Jagger Williams agrees with Mick.
...
"You won't figure this out on your own," Mick said. "Everybody that's doing it now learned it from someone else."
In fact, Mick said he thinks it usually takes longer to train a person how to decipher the dog's and sheep's body language than it does to train the dog, which is about two years.
