  1. he is not scared when waiting a dog. He just does not want to miss out on oportunity to play with other dog ( he does that with people too if they make eyecontact or say something to him, he just wait until they pet him then we can go on) . yes the smelling seems to be girl-pee related. He starts foaming and moving his jaw when he finds the good pee which doesn't happen when he is just exploring.
  2. Hi.I'm new here. Sorry if already posted, but could not find my answer. So i have a border collie (Spike) for a year now. he is 14 months old. He listens perfectly inside but when outside the smells are just too much for him. Everytime i manage to get his attention (eye contact) he obeys and listens but getting attention is a lot harder as you may think. He is always smelling and licking the floor on walks which makes him an unobedient dog when we encounter some other stimuli (bikes, rollers, skatboards...) I'm awarding him when he is not smelling around and looks at me but the problem is not getting smaller. I was wondering if that is because of hormones and i woud get rid of the intense smelling if i castrate him? He is peeing 50 times per walk and smelling nonstop, but that is also the only problem. he is not acting aggressive towards other dogs or people only has problems listening or better yet paying attention. We live in a town in a small apartment and i think he should be desentisized to the loud noises, smells, surroundings as we spend min. 3 hours daily, outside walking, playing with other dogs or fetch and so on... do you think castration would solve the problem? should i give him more time and his behavior will change through time? considering longer lifespan would castrating have a negative effect? (testosterone is a really important, regenerating hormone) Problem 2. As Spike sees a dog in a distance, he lays down and waits so long that the dog come to us. If i try to pull him he is acting dead, he doesn't see or smell the treats when a dog is in his eyes. Any idea how to stop him from laying down and here and there ignoring a dog that is passing by or passing by 200m away 20190911_165835.mp4
