  1. You know, it's crazy.. It almost sounds like you are talking about Marley when you say everything you do. I don't have strangers come over right now as it is, or I put her in my bedroom while they are here. I have had family (extended family) come over, and as long as they are females, Marley seems fine with them. She may bark at them when they first come in, but after just a few seconds she is fine. It's mostly males she doesn't like. Little kids the same way, she just completely ignores them or will bark once or twice then never pays attention to them again. Normally I only al
  2. This is a great reply.. Sounds almost exactly like Marley. She does the same thing as you say. Going from sitting to standing, to moving about, to hand out, etc causes different responses as she get's used to the stranger. I had not tried the blocking off the kitchen or anything like that yet as my kitchen entrance is much larger than a regular house door so harder to obstruct with a baby gate. I will be contacting a certified vet behaviorist tomorrow and getting the ball rolling but you did give me a few other idea's. Thanks everyone for the help. Hoping the prices here are around
  3. Thanks for the link. I'm going to start calling around Monday to get some idea of prices. Can some of you give me an idea of what I'm looking at cost wise? Thanks! Mike
  4. I will be calling a couple vet's in the area to see who they could recommend. If anyone knows anyone in MD/DC/VA I would appreciate recommendations.
  5. Yeah, she's both fit and healthy. I'll discuss it again with the vet locally as I moved and don't have the same relationship as I did with my previous vet. Thanks for the prompt reply.
  6. So with just a bit of history first.. I've had Marley since she was a puppy. When she was about 4-6 months old she was running up stairs and her leg was caught in-between two stair and broke her leg at her knee. She had to have multiple surgeries to pin/wire, etc her leg back in place. After those surgeries and because of the location of the break she had to be confined to a crate pretty much other than bathroom and being around just me to keep her calm and from jumping (the first time I didn't restrict her enough and she had to have a follow up surgery) for a few months. Before thi
  7. Just wanted to get the opinion here. I have a 2 1/2 year old border collie named Marley I was thinking of having spayed but wanted to see what everyone else here had to say. I had planned to get her spayed when she was younger however when she was still a pup she broke her leg and had to have multiple surgeries and long recover being crated and one thing led to another and she never was taken back in to be spay. Would it be okay with her current age, any things to worry about at this point if I do have her spayed? Much appreciated..
