  1. Bob, We live in NW Georgia. I am planning to go to a few trials to let her see what is happening. We have also been watching videos on the internet, and some show she watchs on tv. I have been looking at books and training videos, but I have not decided which to buy yet. Our dog satys outside mostly, but he does come in the house. We have been working on sitting, down, and stay. He is doing pretty good, except I can't get him to lie down while he is running. Only after I tell him to sit. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Thanks, Shay
  2. Here are my answers: 1) No 2) Very little 3) I have about 9 acres behind my house 4) I have always had dogs, but never a working dog 5) We just want to trial because we don't have any livestock 6) Not a 100% sure. I think he has always just been a pet. I know he has not had any stock time since I got him the first of August. Thanks for replying Bob, and I hope this isn't going to be a train wreck.
  3. Sue, Thanks for the reply and welcome. I am not looking for obedience training. I am looking for training advice on livestock. My daughter wants to possible do some trials, if we can get her and our dog some training or figure out how to do the training ourselves. Thanks
  4. I have just got a border collie from a friend to keep him from being put to sleep. He has been through two shelters and I am the third owner. He is about 2-3 years old, but a wonderful dog. My 8 year old daughter wants to train him, and I am looking for some advice or help. We have had him about 2 months and we are working on sitting and down. He seems to be catching on. I have never owned a border collie, so I am kinda lost with training him. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.
