Newbie (1/14)

  1. sorry its the only photo I have at the time, he's 50cm (21 inches?) Tall. Also he's pure bred if that makes a difference.
  2. Hey guys, Jack has is now a year old so I weighed him to see if he is healthy, I can't find any info on his correct weight for this age so thought id post here. He weighs 18.5kg (I think thats roughly 40 pounds). Is this average/healthy weight? He was one of the largest of his litter but he seems to have stopped growing.
  3. Hey guys, I'm sure there's a post very similar somewhere but I'm not one to thread dig. I just wanted some advice on two things! My dog coming to me when I call, and my dog returning toys to me. 1. Majority of the time Jack will come to me when I call, but there are the moments where he will just look at me dumbfounded and lie down or walk off etc and this frustrates me. I know he's only 3 months so I don't expect much but I was interested to see how people got their puppys to come everytime when called? Is there a special technique etc? 2. Okay I've always wanted a dog to fetch a ball and so that's one thing I've been trying hard to do with my puppy, but most of the time he will run after it and run back to me as if he is bringing it back but stop a metre away and lie down? Sometimes he will come straight back to me or try run past and I will get it off him, he has no problem chasing it or even dropping it for that matter. Sometimes when he will lie down not far from me and I wait and wait telling him to come he will just come to me without the ball? Any tips on how to get him to bring it back to me every time? Am I expecting too much? Also I can't believe how fast these dogs grow! He's getting so big and handsome!
  4. Also just a question guys, according to the breeder he is a pure bred (although no papers to show) and i've been told by people that because of his markings which seem rather traditional that he most likely has a long line of pure bred in him? is this true? all the other puppys of his litter were odd, mostly white with rather weird markings thats all haha. He was the biggest puppy and the most 'normal' looking.
  5. He's definitely curious this one! always trying to find something new to chew Thanks
  6. He really is! Thanks I plan on it thanks Thanks I've had stages over the past year where i would ask but it always got shut down quickly and not brought up again, not this time! I can't wait for the memories I wouldn't know his weight, i'd like to find out though and il post again when i do! If it wasn't for his colour i wouldn't have gotten him, i think the brown looks so good on border collies! Thanks for the kind words
  7. I'm from Melbourne, Australia. And i recently discovered this forum and have learnt alot from it already! So i thought id post up some photos of my pup! A little story behind it, i spent 5 weeks nagging my parents to let me get a puppy, I'm 18 and can't afford to move out yet as im on apprentice wages haha . It took forever for her to say yes, and it came with alot of conditions. As soon as i was about to give up trying i found the perfect pup. Eventually mum said yes so i drove 2 hours there and back! I got him at 7 weeks and have had him for 3 weeks now! So there for he is my 10 week old chocolate puppy Also sorry for all the photos! haha ((in order of age)you will have to click to enlarge! sorry for the low quality had to reduce to attach) Photo the breeder sent me before picking him up. Drive home Introduction to my family's dog, Basil. Recently got woken up to find this, had to take a photo. He is growing so fast and i have a feeling he will be a decent size I've only taught him to sit so far, but everything is as new to me as it is to him thats for sure. Tips/Advice welcome
