  1. Got these books a whole back thanks to some recommendations . I highly recommend them
  2. My bc is ONLY a Velcro dog if I'm doing something, if I'm doing stuff she is always with me. But if I'm not doing anything I'm boring so she's off doing her own thing.
  3. my bc zara is 7, and she will still walk forever but she's not so keen on doing sprints any more and drinks lots more water and doesnt really play with her toys any more, getting more white hairs around the muzzle.
  4. I have my bc off leash all the time. But she's 7 and never ever leaves my side, when she was 2 I would never have her off a leash. And I wouldn't have a dog off leash unless I could trust them 100 percent of the time. It took over 2 years for zara to be trusted and be a "good dog"
  5. It's tough to answer this with out knowing how much physical and mental exersize she is getting.
  6. I'm still having trouble finding any half decent books on their history etc I have no trouble finding other breeds history and very good books
  7. And I still check this and other forums I'm a member on a couple of times a day even though barely anyone posts any more on forums! Haha
  8. Loves the beach. But doesn't care for the water
  9. i dont think a day goes by where im not googling border collie reviews and informations or watching youtube videos (i've watched dogs101 border collies more times then i can count), reading footrot flats things or re reading my border collie books!
  10. thank you amc i will look into them asap and purchase them
  11. Unfortunately I don't have social media , so can only purchase off sites like ebay, thanks anyway
  12. The simple answer and reply is just get your dog the best food you can afford :-) its like your own diet you can survive on take away every day but you would feel horrible.
  13. Well done for adopting . Imo you've got the bc In her best years! When they are younger they don't stop! As far as chasing that's prey drive and it was obviously never nurtured. It's possible to get it back with food based reward . But it would require a lot of effort and training. Imo you should just spend your time doing things with your dog she likes now. Sounds like long walks makes her happy so she can relax and chill out with you :-)
  14. he is bored, a walk for one hour a day isnt enough. he needs mental stimulation more then anything else. i hike with my 7 year old bc for 3 hours a day and it isnt enough i need to play games with him. ball throwing tricks etc
  15. i am so obsessed i regularly watch you tube videos that i've watched i think over 1000 times like dogs 101 border collie and brooklins corner border collie etc
  16. at the moment im feeding taste of the wild topped off with high quality tinned food and of course butcher scraps
  17. still wanting to get more books guys if u guys can give links or titles so i can buy them that would be good
  18. I prefer to feed mine orijen when money is tight I go taste of the wild
  19. im a butcher so i feed my bc a lot of meat i bring home from the shop, but when i cant bring home meat i try and feed my bc a mix of orijen and call of the wild with some tinned food. i've heard ppl swear on their lives by feeding their dogs raw. but im more a 50/50 person 50 percent kibble/50percent raw or tinned food
  20. So, How obsessed with bc's are you? me? im fully obsessed have been my whole life since i was a kid and my father introduced me to footrot flats, got stuffed toys, read the comics and to this day i still collect footrot flats things! i think i will always have a border collie, at least untill im a senior and can not longer exersize my dogs, i am constantly reading books, internet articals, watching youtube videos on border collies! i am fully obsessed! if i ever go shopping and see any border collie memorabilia i will be sure to get it!
  21. my border collie will guard this house from possums and or any small vermits! but when it comes to humans he will ignore them or if they are friendly lick and want to play with them.
  22. still working on training them i dont think it ever stops
