  1. It would be nice for those of us in Canada. Lots of people from the west coast of Canada attended and made the trip. It wouldn't for you guys to do the same once in a blue moon.
  2. You breed dogs to better their breeds. You don't breed for sport dogs. Sport dogs are trained. IMO, it's lazy people who want to buy "sports" dogs. They don't want to bother having to build any tug drive. To me, that is half the fun of dog sports. And hey... genetics is only 10%.
  3. Sorry to hijack... but I noticed for throws that Jersey jumps for, she lands with her back legs. I've heard that's really tough on them, and it's ideal for them to land on their front. Is there a way to teach this to Jersey?
  4. One thing that I've noticed over the years is that some of his photos have things photoshopped out of them. I wonder what is really supposed to be there.
  5. He looks a little chubby to me! He seems a lot buffer than most BCs I've seen... I would either say Aussie/BC, or high end of Aussie. But who knows... could be BC! Is it possible to get a video of him moving?
  6. Thanks for starting this thread... I just recently started playing frisbee with Jersey and she loves it. I have a question about jumps and age... Jersey is just over a year old now. I don't do any crazy flips or turns, she just jumps in the air a couple of feet and lands. Should I take it easy with her, or do you think she is ok?
  7. I did it in this order: Jump Tunnel (with no curve) Tire jump Weaves That's all the equipment I have, so that's all I've taught so far. lol
  8. We have a one eyed dog training to do flyball... I honestly see no reason why a dog with lost vision could not compete in agility.
  9. Here's a video of Jers at flyball last night. She can do all four jumps, but for some reason I was starting her at two in this video. Anyway... here it is.
  10. My dogs LOVE playing Hide-n-Seek. You need two people to play. One to hide, the other to hold her and say "go find ____!!" The person hiding can yell, "Cali, come fiiiind meeeee!" I don't know what it is about that game, but my dogs love, love, LOVE it!
  11. As already stated, ALL puppies nip. Their mothers and humans are the ones who teach them that they need to be gently. So you need to be consistent with your corrections. Most Border Collie's, when raised with children, are completely fine with them. It sounds like you are very responsible, so I don't think you have anything to worry about it.
  12. Hull's Haven (www.hullshaven.org) is having an online auction mid June.
