  1. Hello, hope this finds everyone well. This will be my first post as a first Border Collie owner. I have had Maggie (now 6 mos) for about 2 months now, and it has definitely changed my lifestyle (for the good!). Training has been great, I'm amazed at how quick she picks up everything I teach her and am excited about the prospect of her being a super awesome companion. I have been going back and forth about crate training her. She knows 'Place' and we have her in our room for when we're away and/or when we go to bed where she has her own bed. What I'm wondering, is it more advisable to
  2. Hi all! Looking for some guidance on potential crate anxiety. We are first time dog parents to a four month old Border Collie mix. We have had him a little over a month now. I work from home and, truly, I think this has done him a bit of a disservice as he is rarely crated. The first two weeks we had him, I would try two hour crate naps but it became such a chore to get him in the crate that I stopped (my issue, I know!) He would whine and cry to high hell at night so no longer sleeps in the crate at night and does perfectly fine sleeping on our bed or our floor. No destruction or bad hab
  3. Hi there everyone, I am hoping you can give me some tips to help my 10 month old, Sunny, with his couch zoomies. I have visited the boards many times over the last few months (although this is my first post), and all the wonderful tips and advice has really helped, so thank you all!! For a bit of background info, we do allow Sunny on the couches for snuggles and snoozes. He also has a bed in the living area which is where we are trying to get him to lay when he has treats and toys, instead of the couches (a work in progress, but not the main concern). The main concern i
  4. Hello All, I'm new to the forum with a new pup. I've searched for more on this topic but found only a few items. Maybe I searched incorrectly? Sorry if there is more out there I may have missed. At any rate, I have a 13wk old pup. Have had him 1.5 wks. He's an amazing boy and learns more and more each day. It's been over a decade since I've had a pup and wondering if being left in the crate (while we go out short periods) gets better? I've read many articles, watched many videos regarding training him to like his crate and get used to being alone. He currently cries and barks
  5. I recently (three weeks ago) adopted a border collier (5 yrs old). My last dog was strickly an inside dog except to do her business (no one told her before she died that she wasn't human!). At any rate, I do have a good situation as I work from my home office and we do have 2 acres of fenced in yard. Scotty has really taken a liking to the bulldog Buster next door. Buster helps Scotty get his exercise as they run the fence line together. In about a month, I will go going out of town and my son (that lives in a separate house on the property) will be taking care of Scotty. The problem
  6. Hi, I am glad that I found this board, it has already been so helpful and I love reading the posts. I hope that you guys can offer some reassurance and advice based on some of my worries, concerns/questions Background: I live in a village with my husband, close to woods and not too far from the Lake District. My husband and I love going on local walks and enjoy going for hikes in the lake district. We have always said that we'd like to get a dog, and a border collie is my favourite breed, so when for health reasons I decided to take a long career break, we decided to get our puppy
  7. Hi everyone: Thank you all in advance for your help and advice. We just got our male puppy yesterday. He is eight weeks old. We have a house with a reasonably-sized back yard. Initially we have decided that he will not be allowed in the house, so we don't want to encourage behavior that tells him that he is allowed indoors. Also, we want to train him so that he always goes in a specific part of the yard. This will prevent future stepping-in-poo accidents and easier to pick up (you know where it is). So, we are confused as to how we should go about this. - One idea is to cr
  8. Our 4 months old BC pup is getting too big for her crate in the car. I'm afraid a larger crate won't fit the backseat of the truck anymore. So we would like to slowly start to de-crate train her. The crate upstairs that she sleeps in is much larger, so she can keep that one for a while longer. However, we would like her to be able to sleep just on a dog bed, cause we couldn't take that Xlarge crate when traveling and staying somewhere else. And talk about staying somewhere else: Any advice on keeping a dog from barking? Like in a hotel? Any tips? TIA!
  9. This is my first post on the boards here, but I have been following frequently. I brought home an 8-week border collie a couple weeks back (put deposit on her a few months ago) Since putting a deposit on her, life has begun to get quite busy with work and finding out that I will be attending graduate school and I've begun to doubt my ability to provide the environment I had hoped for this brilliant pup. I recently found myself trying to figure just how much i can crate her during the day to get what I need to get done, but it often feels like all day (with visits to let her out, of course)
  10. I rescued a border collie/french bulldog recently that was hit by a car. She appears to be around 9 to 10 months old. We have a backyard and a chihuahua that she plays with and we do take her on walks, play with her in the back yard, and have tons of chew toys for her. When we leave, she starts chewing on shoes, the sofa (destroyed), our new wall, and well anything. It doesn't matter if we are gone a half our or leave for work. When we are home, she doesn't chew on her toys or her chew bones and seems perfectly content. We spend a lot of time with her and play with her a lot in the backyard.
