  1. I adopted my border collie, Runa, about 5 months ago. She is between one and two years old, a reservation rescue and had spent two months in a foster home arranged by a local BC rescue group. She has completed level 1 & 2 obedience and is one class away from completing agility level 1. I have been trying my best to meet her needs and still have a sane life. She is totally amazing, but it has been one challenge after another, from the resource guarding, to the worse case incomplete housebreaking (stared at me and squatted, pee and poop in crate, and sneak pees). The foster mentioned the sneak pees after I adopted her. Just when I think we have made progress, some new behavior appears. First question- Is Runa testing me? She has known “sit” since I got her. Recently, there have been several times when I asked her to sit and she looked at me like I was crazy. So I put on her gentle leader (it was within reach) and waited and waited. Finally she sat down. She also loves fetch, but three days ago, she quit bringing the ball back. She knows “bring it”, but now she will bring it one or two times, then parks with the ball about 10 feet away. Is she trying to change the rules of the game? This is a primary physical outlet, two 30 minute fetch sessions minimum. I have been giving her two chances to “bring it”, then saying, “OK, all done”, getting the ball and going back in the house. So I bundle up, (we are in Minnesota), ready for 30 minutes of fetch, throw the ball twice and end up going back inside. We did that four times yesterday and three times already today. She is doing the same thing with basement frisbee. What is going on? Second question- In agility class when the other dogs are running, or she hears the tunnel, she goes nuts. I have to leave the gentle leader on her during those times to have any control at all. I have taken her into a separate room and outside numerous times to calm her down, but as soon as she hears/sees the action, she goes from 0 to 10 and I can’t get her back. When it’s her turn on the course, she is totally focused (at 100 mph) and looks like she should be competing at Crufts. But, on the sidelines, me, treats, toys, nothing seems to get through. Have any of you had a BC like this? What did you do? Thanks for any help you can give me. Judith and Runa
