  1. Hey everyone, I need advice, I am going through a very hard time with my beloved 1y 6m old BC. We live in a 55 sqm flat, we play in the morning 10-11am, then in the afternoon 5-6pm then she gets a poddy walk at 11pm. She has been really good until recently -the past month we did flat renovations, fixed the bathroom. She was good most days, certain days she would be very attention demanding, she would steal tools just to get attention. Now that the works are finished, she still continues to be very not settled, she wants attention every 10minutes, even after being exercised.
  2. Hi there! I'm new to the forums so please excuse me if I say something that is incorrect. I have an 8 month old male entire Border Collie. I purchased him from proven champion working stock with lines behind them of the same. The dogs have lure coursing, herding, disk, dive, agility and obedience titles. I sought after a BC as a performance dog and of course, a companion for myself and my other dog. Despite his heratige my border collie has almost no drive at all, for toys, balls or prey. He is fairly driven for food but just seems lazy in general. He is a very fit boy, has bee
  3. Hi there, I'm a first time BC owner, and unfortunately, I am among those dummies that adopted a BC without first doing in-depth research about the breed and perhaps started out with my puppy all wrong. I know more about these dogs now and am doing great with the majority of his obedience training, I am very precise with him and he's gotten "sit", "down", "go get it", and it in the process of learning "leave it". Unfortunately, I have had NO success in reducing his play biting, which has worsened to severe biting every time I hold him or touch him. I have never used any sort of negative enforce
  4. I have a 13 week old puppy who I've been training since I got her at 7 weeks. First was housetraining and crate training. She was able to sleep through the night at 8 weeks and comes up to me when she has to potty during the day if she's outside of her crate. She can guzzle water right before bed and sleep 9 hours straight. She also learned to sit for things she wanted (food, toys) in her first week home with me. We've been working on down, look, touch, leave it, recall for the past several weeks. I just started duration work with her. She's doing very well and picks up everything quickly. She
  5. In the Spring my previous dog and I were involved in the production of these videos for Tawzer dog. Game On! is for teaching obedience classes using games, and has some super fun ideas for any trainers out there. Agility for fun and confidence is a 6 week curriculum for teaching an intro agility class to help dogs build confidence and have fun. Nicole's great to work with, she has great ideas, and Tawzer's having a 50% off Black Friday Sale! http://dvddepot.tawzerdog.com/ My doodle and I make some appearances in the Game On preview also
  6. I am mostly in a wheel chair. I have not found a dog dummies training book that addresses basic obedience training from a wheel chair. I had my new BC guy taught how to sit at our very first meeting. Kept reinforcing, praising, treating him. I went to work on trying to teach him lie-down stay. I had the female demonstrate what I meant, so that took about a week of watching her lie down to get what I was trying to tell him. He will lie down on command, but not lie down stay. But he can't quite understand what I mean about lying down-stay. He wants to follow me if I move backwards. What I have b
  7. Help! I love my 8 year old male Border Collie. He has three Rally Obedience titles and two Obedience titles. He is a great dog to work with. VERY high drive and loves to work! He is quiet around the house but when he is working and he is happy and excited (most of the time) he barks. Over the years I've tried many things from turning my back on him, putting him in a crate for time out, telling him quiet to recently trying a citronella collar (maybe a little better.) I've been told by trainers to simply show under judges that won't take points off for barking or to keep repeating th
  8. Ok, I need drastic help! I have a female BC who I trained and is amazing, she is the envy of our friends, she is just over 2 and not desexed. We have since added to our family with a male BC (Jin) who is now six months old and will be a big dog as he is already bigger than our female. Our problem is this, this dog is totally different and not interested in anything we try to involve it in, we walk both off the leash twice a day where there is huge running space and the female loves to chase the rugby ball which I kick until she's puffed, the male takes the path of least resistance always,
  9. My family recently adopted a young Border Collie who came to us as a stray. My husband was quite nervous about taking on a new dog, especially considering we have a 1-year-old daughter who I stay home with. I assured him that I would be able to care for and properly train our new dog, Archer. So...we've had Archer now for about 3 weeks. He exhibits pretty normal puppy behavior (he's just under a year old) - chewing, has some potty training accidents, nipping, etc. I'm hoping that someone more experienced with BCs than myself can offer some advice on proper training as well as what to e
  10. Hello, everyone! I am a BC beginner and I will be getting my first Border Collie. She will be just about 8 weeks old when I pick her up. I am extremely excited, as I've been searching for the right puppy for a few years now. Even though she comes from a strictly herding line, I've decided that I would like to train her for both flyball and agility when she's older. I've been involved in flyball for about two years now and I am a complete beginner in agility. So, I have a bit of a dilemma that I'm hoping a few of you can help with. How should I go about as far as training clas
