:) Yep... that's why one pays a good professional to assess the situation visually, and independently, and from a place of experience. 

We all have our ideas... but nothing can gel until one spends time with the dogs in their own territory, and watches the dynamics.
It's kinda like asking DR. Google ! You might come close ..however, a hands-on professional who has studied and seen it all before can diagnose best by being physically there

Possibly.  Kelpies are strong minded and like to be in charge.  If you're bred to herd sheep and all you have is dogs, what do you do?

Just watch that you don’t create jealousy between the dogs.  I would never play with one of the girls unless the other one is confined.
