  1. Hi, I am searching for a video I saw awhile back. It is of someone teaching the teeter. The dog is sent through a tunnel and comes out to the teeter. The teeter is set up with a white pole sticking up on both sides (like a jump under the down side of the teeter). The upside when it comes down has a table under it so that the dog hits the pivot and it stops almost immediately on the table. The table is slowly lowered but the dog has learned where the pivot point is. Does anyone know what I am talking about? I would love to see the video again. This time I am saving it. I was telling someon
  2. I came across this thread by accident by a google search. I have been researching for quite sometime for my next dog which will be a border collie. I have found this thread to be so interesting! It has given me new things to consider in my decision. I haven't made it through the whole thread yet but will continue later. I agree with another poster please don't feel your post have fallen upon deaf ears. I have taken in a lot of new information! Thanks!
  3. Agree great post! I had not really known of this female/female aggression. My rat terrier female has always been very bold and bossy so to say. I have a male rat terrier also and added a female dobe. When she was between 15/18 months is when what you call snarkyness started. But I believe it has more to do with ranks in the pack. They were not allowed to work it out. The dobe is now 3 and terrier almost 10...they get along well now and are tolerant of each other. They seem to share the leadership role...at home its the dobe and when we go out its the terrier. They are never left together
  4. I dont have a border collie but had a very simular problem with my dobe,Kyrah. She liked people then around 15 weeks she just didnt want them reaching for her and would back up and bark. Geez...lets not even talk about someone trying to come inside. I started by trial and error and my worst error was trying to go too fast. I started by putting her in her crate when people came over which was in the dinning room. That way she could smell them for a bit before I let her out and I could give our guests the rules. When she was let out she came and sat by my side and I would tell her "greet." Whic
  5. I built all of my agility equipment myself except for the tunnel. I believe it is cheaper. The jumps are extrememly easy with the exception of the jump cups. Next time I might try and purchase those. Someone said you can find them on ebay but I have yet to.
  6. Really enjoyed the video! Looks like fun!
  7. I am curious. How common is this in the breed? In your opinion would you say that a majority of BC have seizures? Is this a treatable thing? I am assuming that they could die during any of these seizures. If anyone doesnt mind please kinda explain to me what the dog does during a seizure. Is it like a person having one?
  8. I just wanted to say hi! I joined the forum to browse around and learn as much as I can about the border collie. We are thinking of adding one to our family in the future. I currenlty own 2 rat terriers and 1 doberman. I am active with my dogs and would plan on being so with any future additions. I am around people who have border collies so I am not coming in blindly. But I still want to learn more before adding one. Thanks for having me!
