  1. I had this issue with my pup and it all seemed as if it started over night. I am lucky enough to work at a family business and while he was a puppy he would come to work with me. All of the sudden one day it was like someone flipped a switch. He went from wanting to love on everyone to being territorial, unsocial, and borderline mean. He would bark and growl and carry on something awful. With him I cured this by everyone that came in the office/house I would hand a treat. My dog would come around the corner ready to raise hell, only to be met with a dog treat. He eventually started loving
  2. When I got Tucker I really did not do a whole lot of research. I had just bought a house and knew I wanted a dog and for sure wanted that dog to be a Border Collie. I found him on, don't quote me on this, puppyfinder.com. Don't ban me from the site but I honestly did not take into consideration his ability to be registered, herding abilities or anything like that.

He was born tan and that turned to the black saddle he has now. Oh well I always knew he did everything backwards. Thanks for everyones help! Next person that asks what color he is will get a knowledgable answer instead of a "ummmmmmm."
  5. First of all let me start by saying what a great knowledge base this site has. I started lurking here around 6 months ago when I was looking for information on training techniques for my border collie Tucker. Tucker is now a little over a year old and over that year has seen a lot of controversy regarding his color. Tucker was purchased from a breeder here in Tennessee and both of his parents are the "text book" black and white. The other puppies in his litter vary anywhere from black & white to red to whatever Tucker is. I've had people tell me there is no way he is a border collie becaus
