  1. If I wish to return one day can I with the same email?
  2. We have when he was younger and we are waiting to see them again. Is there anything you could think of which maybe causing the physical issues. Thank you for the kind words I do appreciate it.
  3. I see as a first time dog owner this is definitely all a lot to take in. We also got a Collie to be active but I respect he has needs and will need to look at maybe seeing if we can get a diagnosis. He has always been huge amounts of work.. More so than I could possibly imagined and more so than all other pup owners. Sigh
  4. Hmmm does he self settle my boy has always struggled to self settle. Even now we crate him when he gets overworked or he gets grumpy and barks then is all over place.
  5. My guy is also super affectionate but hes also always on the go non stop and at the moment seems to be not coping well without physical exercise? How was your guy at 10 months. My boy loves fetch and long walks off lead and hasn't yet shown any wobbles but does self regulate during fetch.
  6. Oh my gosh. I have suspected our pup has border collie collapse disorder for a while now. He self regulates a lot on walks during fetch etc he will lay down quite regularly he also gets tired quite easily compared to other dogs and loses his shit.
  7. 8 month mark was the biggest regression I have noticed he had a massive freak out when he was over his frustration threshold Infront of lots of people biting his lead and my partner because he couldn't say hello to people. He managed to make her cry. He looks like an adult dog and is a fairly sizeable 20kg Collie so just looked out of control and dangerous. I guess we just have to keep going he is family.. However he is pushing his luck
  8. This definitely all sounds very familiar.
  9. Thank you so much. Can you over stimulate a dog mentally? I really appreciate the time you took to post your girls schedule.
  10. Thank you Mark your posts have been very helpful and I appreciate your advice. I will be incorporating more mental stimulation immediately. Do you think the physical stimulation we give our 8 month old is too much?
  11. Hello thank you for your response yes we regularly practice place and we also do capturing calmness on the daily. He can do place for a good 20 minutes before he becomes inpatient but still refuses to be calm after he will jus get up and do what he does usually but more intense. We also try in the evenings giving him on chews with no toys and ignore him for periods to see if he will give in. He also knows lots of tricks and like many collies is eager to learn but becomes more brat like after. Lastly when he is beyond reasoning we put him in the crate for a nap normally at this point he is running in and out the crate and won't stay put until we tell him go to bed. Thanks for your response I am determined but also burnt out.
  12. But he's tired a lot of the time he just doesn't understand how to settle. This just feels like a bad idea and he would become an endurance monster from it.
  13. Pick a 10 and half month old up? If I picked my 8 month old up there would be hell to pay.
  14. Thats amazing great job! You clearly are a very loving and patient team. Was your pup always nervous or reactive or did it come out of the abyss and take you by surprise.
  15. How old is she and have you visited a vet to rule out pain?
  16. Will do and will keep you updated, heres a pic of him with his cat!
  17. Has it started since the clocks changed? Do you give him? I've recently learnt with my adolescent nearly 8 month old we have been rewarding his behaviour. Is he crated and if so do you get him out when he does this? It could be boundary testing. There are amazing handlers here I am sure they will be along soon to help
  18. Just wanted to thank everyone for their incredibly insightful responses especially CptJack & Tamapup. Since I stopped letting Pax get away with as much, tightened the boundaries and changed my mindset I have noticed a huge difference in his personality. HE SAT ON THE SOFA WITH ME AND THE CAT FOR 23 MINUTES! Yes I counted and granted I was calmly fussing him but still to me this means the world. Thank you so much!
  19. I guess sometimes I just don't believe he will ever be an actual dog instead of a mischievous pup.
  20. What a small but fantastic method we do celebrate Pax's achievements but not nearly as much as I could. It will put us both in a positive place. Thank you so much for your response.
