One year old in General Border Collie Discussion Posted April 12, 2019 · Report reply Hi, my boy will be one year old in two weeks and this sounds all too familiar. He is saintly at home ( most of the time) but outdoors on walks i cannot trust him to come back in face of distractions. If we are alone in the park no problem but all bets are off if there is a distraction. I fully accept this is my fault and i really need to work on training. Good luck and keep up the good work He was neutered 4 weeks ago and really i do not see any difference.
