  1. This my first post. I apologize if this isn't posted in the right area. My wife and I have a 7 year old female border collie named Sydney. She is very well trained, knows all her toys by name, and is absolutely obsessed with her frisbee. She was our baby for 6 years, and went to the park every day to play frisbee and swim in the pond. 14 months ago my wife and I had our first baby, and understandably Sydney gets a lot less attention than she used to. She still gets walked every day, and gets to the park at least every week, but her behavior is starting to deteriorate. She's become much more anxious. She barks at dogs on the street more. She barks at dogs on walks. She is slower to obey commands, if she obeys them at all. I tried making a point to get her to the park every day to pay for at least 30 minutes but we just don't have the time anymore. I tried taking her running with me but she hated it so much that for a while she even refused to go for a walk. We love Sydney and we don't want her health to suffer just because our family got bigger. If anyone else in this group has gone through a similar situation I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, Graeme
