  1. My pup had some leash reaction issues and I can say the treats are working very well. He is becoming clam in situations that made him nervous before. It did take awhile to see good improvement though. Good luck!
  2. Thank you.. I can see why so many people love these breeds. They are Bengal cats.... Generally an intelligent energetic sometimes dog-like breed. Playing fetch... Liking water and leash walking is not uncommon. They do seem to match well with dogs if raised with them since they like to play. I am allergic to cats but this breed doesn't bother me too much since they don't have an under coat and shed minimally. They have a small amount of Asian leopard in there genes hence the spotted pelt.

  5. Wanted to update. Zyggy is now 1 year old and we also got a Bengal kitten who is 1 month older than him so they are best buddies. He is a wonderful dog, the only problem we are working on is some leash re-activeness. A miniature poodle attacked him when he was 6 months, he was on lead and the other dogs collar broke and he got away from the owner. Zyggy was not hurt but the dog jumped on him repeatedly making awful noises until we could catch the dog. Zyggy was scared and jumping around like a hot potato. Currently he is only reactive at dog school, I believe because there are so many
  6. I am new to border collies so I can't help there but I had two field goldens (at different times), they were females and besides the puppy phase, they were not bouncy in your face dogs, they would play tug and such with me but they were pretty serious and respectful around other dogs. They would tolerate other bouncy dogs but they preferred behaved dogs. Perhaps the field lines are a bit different? Maybe helped I started training them around dogs in classes young? I think you could find the right pup of lab/golden if that is what you want. My last golden's relatives worked as therapy d
  7. Hello! I do not post often but lurk a lot and thought I would share my experience since I have a 10 month old border collie mix (mixed with other herding breeds). I got him when he was 9 weeks. We lived in a 2nd story apartment complex that was pet friendly at the time. We ended up moving into a side by side duplex with our own yard. Yes, we had to move because it was what turned out to be best for our dog. We did not have issues with barking or anything like that but new people moved in downstairs who had a baby and because part of our apartment was wood flooring, you could hear everythin
  8. It's hard for me to imagine the type of person who neglects/abuses a dog, let alone such a beautiful one as her. She can now know what love is.
  9. Beautiful dogs everyone! I think saddle back is my new fav color. What a beautiful surprise she grew into Thanks for being so welcoming even though he is a mix. He is the only mix in his puppy school but kicking butt Here is a video I took last week of Zygy playing with his friend Jasmine (field spaniel) before practicing recalls. I took him on a 1.5 hour walk before class (weather was sooo nice!) but he still had energy reserves for some play. There is a part at the end where she runs off and he chases her and runs around out in front of her to face her. Is this some of that h
  10. If I wasn't in an apartment, I would love to have two dogs, one golden and one herding type. I had thought about getting another golden but cancer is so prevalent in their breed. It is the one major pitfall that is hard to ignore. I decided I would try something different this time. My golden (Jem) has a white face now and is retired living a very spoiled life with my parents in the countryside. Took Zygy for a 1.5 hour walk today and then went to puppy class for 1.5 hours... really wore me and him out!
  11. Thank you all. Gloria, Midge is beautiful. I love tri-colors! I didn't even know border collies came in so many colors until I got Zygy and was doing some research on his breeds. I have only seen black and white ones in person.
  12. My growing pup's ears are doing all sorts of funny things too. I love it He had one tipped and one flopped over and then 2 days later he had changed sides of which one was tipped vs flopped. Then he had just one up all the way for a day...and right now they are both tipped. I have seen his ears stand up twice when he was on high alert watching another dog. I joke around and say he just likes to have different ear styles like we have hair styles.
  13. Thank you! He sure is a fun guy! What do you mean by amount of tan? Borders can come in the same color, can't they? It's just uncommon unlike Aussies? He has been changing a lot as he grows. When he was 8 weeks his head looked more like a standard collie, his nose was narrow and his eyes were closer together and smaller but his head seems to be "normalized" now and is looking more border. I have never had a mix before so I find how he is changing pretty fascinating because I don't exactly know what I will end up with. I think he may grow into a big boy unless his growth slows down
  14. Hello all, I got a new pup, Zygy (Ziggy) at 9 weeks, he is about 4 months old now. His mom was border collie/australian shepherd and his dad was rough collie/german shepherd. They are working "ranch dogs" on a cattle farm. Decided to join some border collie forums as he is aging and seems to be taking on some of the personality. He can really get an intense eye at times when he is focusing on something and doesn't think his 'job' should ever end (right now the job is fetch). He is an extremely active and intelligent pup but I haven't given him any bad habits yet. He was really skittish
