Newbie (1/14)

  1. We ended up bringing her yesterday and she did FANTASTIC! It was a great confidence builder and she received tons of positive attention from people + was able to see and try new things. I thought she would go right into her kennel and sleep when we got back, but boy was I wrong as she was excited late into the night! lol.
  2. Great info. I was finding a lot of conflicting articles before. TY It's a bit tricky. On one hand I don't want her to develop anxiety, but on another we can't keep pushing it out. She has a 1 Y/O companion that roams the house and keeps a good eye on her, but I think we will bring her will and just stop 1/2 way for 20 min. and leave her in the car checking on her ever 30 min. or so. She has been getting car sick, but we have 4 miles of bumpy road before we get to paves, so I'm wondering if that's part of the problem.
  3. We had an appointment on Friday and had to cancel because we didn't know how long we could leave our pup in a crate at home for. It would have been for over 7 hours and she has gotten car sick a few times, so a two hour drive one way wasn't happening. The longest she has been alone for is 2 1/2 hours. We re-scheduled for this Tuesday, but I'm just not sure.
  4. Our 1 Y/O BC mix Pandy needed a friend, so we picked this little one a few days ago. She's adjusting very well at this point even though we don't have a name picked out just yet. We have it narrowed down to Kenosha, Baily, Silverheels, Jackie or Shawnee. (Perhaps I'll do a poll?) Little puppy is 4.5 lbs and starting to come out of her shell, very playful and loves attention, Pandy has started to nurture the puppy. At what point should I start potty training? When she goes in her crate, she cries immediately and has been trying to go on her pads. It is rather cold here during winters though.
  5. I'm so sorry to hear that your beautiful corgis should be a good distraction.
  6. I would love to see it when your done of I can. As cute as Pandy is, she has nothing on or little Fifi who died a few months back.
  7. It was just sort of a "hey look at that". I like showing dogs things for the first time, but she didn't appreciate it. I was looking more into it and it could have been fear or showing her dominance. She wasn't very close, maybe 10' in the backseat of a car.
  8. Thanks Starry, a dog owner always thinks "my dog is sooooo cute" but you just confirmed it along with other people on the thread
  9. I think it might be a bit early to really look into her behavior as puppies will be pupps and not being familiar with the breed, I'm going to get it all wrong.
  10. Thanks for the tip. We are going to but her in obedient classes in Sept. She is very well behaved, but she needs to learn a few things I can't teach her. She was a bit aggressive today with the nipping when playing, but she stopped rather fast when she saw that I was displeased.
  11. "Also, I laughed outloud when I read "I threw a stick today and she held onto it for 1/4 mile and brought it home." She has now upgraded to a bone and won't let it out of her site, she brought it on her morning walk today lol. We brought her into town for the first time yesterday and she did great, the town hosted a festival, so it was filled with other dogs and livestock. On the way in, I slowed down the car so she could see some cattle and she barked,her hair was standing straight up like a cat lol. Pany also had her first up-close deer encounter.
  12. Hi Kathy, Thanks so much. all of the traits you listed she has with the exception of sound. She walks in circles outside the house perimeter and cars, but she doesn't spin in short circle like most dogs I've seen do right before they lay down. We've had her one week and her instincts started to kick in on day 4. She has had her nose to the ground after her first few walks and goes after rabbits and rodents with a sharp focus. I threw a stick today and she held onto it for 1/4 mile and brought it home. She keeps nibbling at it on the porch. She has nipped at our heels a few times also and I was reading that is common behavior for Border Collies, but she is also a puppy, so I might be over analyzing.
  13. Hi, My wife and I got Pandy last week and she is our first Border Collie (or so we think). We got Pandy at a shelter and they told us she was a border collie mix and 4 months old, but we think she is a bit older. She has short hair and some odd features, is Pandy a BC mix or something else? Any help would be appreciated.
