Border Collie/Lab mix

I've done quite a bit of research on the internet regarding this topic.
However I found a lot of discrepancies.
How much exercise does a lab/collie mix actually need per day to stay non-destructive? I know it varies from dog to dog, but generally speaking.
I also know the requirement for mental stimulation, however I am more interested in the physical requirements.
Thanks in advance.

Both a BC and Labrador require a lot of exercise.... at least a couple hours a day off lead running and "being dogs" The BC has more of a need for mental stimulation as well.

Summary... get ready for a dog who is a full time job!

A combination of walks in new locations, a handfull of training sessions and a good play and a kong or puzzle toy should do it for you. Also, find a "job" for your dog. bringing the mail in, helping with laundry ect...

Mental stimulation can often be as tiring as physical exercise!
