  1. I'm going to try and post them here... let me know if it works!
  2. Hi all! A friend of mine is looking to get a border collie pup and I am helping her in her search. She competes mainly in agility, but also does frisbee and dock diving. Just a great overall active home. Anyway, a mutual friend of ours recently notified her about a litter that is on the ground now (6 weeks old). I've looked at their pedigrees (ABCA), but I don't see much that I recognize. Would anyone be willing to take a look for me? She also has a possibility of getting a pup out of a Ron Enzeroth litter. I'm trying to encourage that as much as I can... the dam is momma to
  3. Update - Gravy is HOME! Her breeder sent her mama to Georgia to help in the search, and 24 hours later, Gravy is safe at home. Such good news!!
  4. All, A friend of mine has lost her 7 month old pup in Fairburn, GA. Female, b/w medium coat, classically marked, slim, answers to "Gravy." The dog is not microchipped. She has a Facebook group set up here: https://www.facebook...ndgravy?fref=nf I'm posting here in the hopes that someone in the area or in a rescue will see this dog, and we can get her home! Best, Danielle

  6. I went through some serious teeter issues not once, but twice, with Penny (no clue what started the second round of fear...it was sudden and strange). Anyway, what worked for us was going through the Sizzling Seesaws exercises, lots of play, and sardines. Lots of sardines. Sizzling Seesaws is especially nice if you don't have access to an adjustable teeter.... You use different height tables to adjust the amount of drop the dogs experience. I also bought some inflatable balance discs and trained with those to help make being on unstable surfaces more fun. That definitely helped. Bonus: im
  7. Hi! First off, I think you are asking a lot of great questions, and good for you for thinking this through so carefully! Border collies are fun dogs... Smarter than your average dog, and quirkier for sure....but at the end od the day, they are still dogs, so don't be too worried about all the horror stories. Re: breeders.... There are plenty of good ones in Texas! Good place to start is here: http://www.texassheepdogassoc.org.
  8. Agility is SO MUCH FUN! You can't (shouldn't) train obstacles until dogs are over a year old, but there is so much fun foundation work to do in the meantime. And plenty of things to practice with cones, tunnels, jump wings, etc. really, you can get all your handling tarted long before you ask a dog to jump or climb up an a-frame. I definitely encourage you to give it a try. It's a fun sport, and easy to get hooked on!
  9. My penny was 20.5" tall... But she was nothing but legs and only weighed 33.5 lbs. my little Wren is 25.5 lbs at 7 months.... Roughly 17" tall.... But we will see where she ends up.
  10. I like root beers method for measuring height.... I've done something similar to measure my guys. It works reasonably well. As far as the size of border collies in general....there is such a range! I've seen everything from 25-60 lbs.... And 16-24inches.... So depending on how big the BC is in your dogs background, that could make a big difference in final size.
  11. Bummer. It was neat to see a video of a celebrity with something other than a dog in a tote bag...
  12. I just ran across this video, and thought it was too good not to share. Who knew David Lee Roth trained in herding?! http://ultimateclassicrock.com/david-lee-roth-shows-off-his-herding-dogs-in-new-video/?trackback=fbshare_mobile
