  1. Hi Guys, I need some help please I have a 7 month old Border Collie Named Misty. She’s always had an appetite and got excited at meal times however the last few days she has been leaving her food. Right from the moment we brought her home she has had the same food. Her food is a custom blend from tails.com which is formulated for her breed, age and weight. She has 2 meals a day, 1 in a morning of just dry food and 1 in the evening of dry and wet food mixed. She has always eaten both meals happily. But the last few days she has started to leave food. Her morning feed she tend
  2. Our 5 and half month is soo hyper he comes put of his crates after naps and is non stop even with adequate mental and physical stimulation he just ends up over tired and has to be enforced for a nap. He never stops moving and has too much energy I read in Barbara Sykes book 90% percent of border collies receive too much protein in their diet and need 24% or less. Our boys food is 27% however when I look round for kibble with lower protein its soo hard to find it. Anyone have success stories or any recommendations?
  3. Hi, I was just looking for some advice. I have a female border collie and she’s 5 months old. She is such a confident pup and she loves playing with people and other dogs. The only real problem I’m experiencing is that she is really aggressive with resource guarding when it comes to chew sticks, bones and the like. She isn’t as bad with her normal food that she has at meal times but anything of ‘high value’ you just can’t go near her without her growling, showing her teeth then if you go to close she snaps at you. I’ve also found that if she’s fixated on something and you try and g

  5. Hi everyone~ Last time I posted was right around when Nalu turned 9 months old. Two weeks later, he and I were both in a severe head-on collision (a bank robber running from police drove into oncoming traffic and hit us going 90mph). Amazingly, we both survived. Me with severe injuries that took a year to heal from, and Nalu with bruising and some puppy PTSD. We were incredibly lucky. Nalu had to be taken care of by family for the next 3 months, and walked by others for the next year. He is now 2 years old, and we are both doing very well. Here's some more background info before I get to m
  6. After doing a lot of research on what's the best diet for my boy, and taking into account the biased advice of vets and vet university schools. I recently found this clip which may be of use to you. I had also incorporated coconut oil into his food after his coat started getting dry blonde streaks from being in the ocean and pool sometimes twice a day and in the sun a lot. Now his coat is back to its original glossy dark chocolate.
  7. My boy Nalu is coming up on 9 months old. So crazy how fast they grow. But I've recently done research and had discussions about food with my vet and others, and am getting conflicting answers. So, of course, I come here, to the real experts. My vet is telling me to transition him into adult food now, and if I want to change his food brand, now is a good time to do it. He has been eating Science Diet since I first got him, and hasn't had issues with it. Though I've read somewhere that a grain-free diet is better for border collies since they need the protein, and it also helps alleviate a
  8. When I got Nessie from the SPCA, she was being fed Science Diet. I'm told that's a pretty gross food that's full of stuff she doesn't need. So I switched her to Orijen 80/20 adult in late 2012. She's got a nice low and stable weight, nice looking fur and stools seemed fine if not a bit on the hard side. This is where it gets strange, though. Orijen's factory burned down at some point last year and I had been using the old 5.5lb bags that were black with blue halftone photographic art on them. My LPS has gotten a new shipment (in smaller, 5lb bags) - probably the latest version of the foo
