  1. I have not used one, but a good friend did, for her Sheltie who was having some lameness issues. She said it didn't work for her dog. Pet insurance covered it, though, so she wasn't upset about the price.
  2. Just watched this. What an amazing run! I had to watch that shed several times over! They made it look so easy! James McGee is such an impressive trainer/handler. I remember watching a video of him & Becca in a big trial in the UK years ago, and just being blown away by how she worked with him.
  3. This was all before the Dexter the Peacock incident. Now, things are going to get really tough, getting your dog on board in the cabin.
  4. You may want to take him to a chiropractor. I'm wondering if it's his back, or maybe his digestive system? Has he had any problem with gas or moving his bowels?
  5. I only wash my BC and my Aussie/ BC/ whatever mix when they get into something stinky, like when they take a dip in a mucky pond or roll in stinky poop. I also use Buddy Wash, and I love that stuff! I've even used it myself! I love the green tea & bergamot scent.
  6. I love your little trailer!! I want one just like it!
  7. I posted this question in the "ask the expert" section, and several people suggested I post it here in the training discussion, so here goes! My dog, Pete, loves to run his "away" flank so much that he doesn't want to stop and hit that balance point. He just keeps going! On his "come bye" flank, he'll stop at the top, and want to turn around and do his anti-clockwise zoomies. I believe that this behavior is probably a good deal my fault, as he is my first border collie and my first experience working a dog on sheep. He has always been a strong, fast dog, and I believe that made m
  8. All the best to you & Dora! And, yes, you must post a picture soon! Rachel
  9. I apologize! I did not read past the first page of posts!
  10. Maja, not sure if you will see this or not, but I am curious about Darinka's hips. It's been almost 2 years since your last post, and I really enjoyed reading about your training dilemmas and breakthroughs. She is a lovely girl! I'm just curious about how you & she are doing now, and about how her hips turned out?
  11. Also, Luana, the video looked good! Whoever was taking the video, and mentioned something about using "shockers" to keep Spillo from gripping the sheep, please tell him to keep his shockers to himself!!
  12. Hi Luana! I was concerned about Spillo after your lesson last Saturday! Please tell me that he is ok! Did you take him to the vet? I've noticed that you and Maureen have very long lessons (2 hours!!). That is a long time for a young dog to be going through this kind of training, and is especially hard on them when the weather is as hot and humid as it has been! One thing that I've noticed in your work on the long line, Spillo seems to be getting more and more frustrated and stressed. You have to allow him to move around the sheep, and find that balance point. If he gets a
  13. Hi Luana! It's Rachel from the Spicy Lamb! Let me just first say that I think you are doing very well with Spillo. I know that rectangular pen with the ditch running through it is not the easiest thing to work in! I have been hoping that they might set up an actual round pen. It would make things so much easier for folks starting out with dogs for the first time. Is there any chance that you can bring Spillo out to Nova? Judi's farm is dedicated to training stock dogs, and I think we could work in an area where it would be easier for you to move around, and for Spillo to learn wh
