  1. Hello everyone, I have been reading through some of these boards and feel that my situation may also benefit from this discussion! We have a lovely purebred 8 month old male border collie pup, who was bred by a lovely professional breeder who has multiple very well behaved, champion agility dogs, one of which was his mother. We picked him up the day before lockdown in our country. That was completely okay, but during lockdown socialisation in this essential period was obviously difficult. However, we did a lot of research and read up on the best ways we could socialise him to the be
  2. Help Please, New Puppy, female 9 weeks old. AMAZING dog! So far she has easily learned sit, down, to lay down... and a fun game... go to your bed! She runs and hops in her bed! All accomplished with treats... positive reward.....however, I can not seem to get her to understand grabbing legs, pant legs, feet, hands, clothing.... is a no no... I have tried shaking an aspirin bottle, with a NO... it seems to stop her for a brief minute... however, seems now to be less and less effective. We also are having a lot of trouble on leash, how do I get her to stop grabbing the leash? snap on leash... et
  3. I have a 4 month old female BC puppy. I take her to doggy daycare 2 days a week and she loves it. The place is divided between small and big dogs. Since she's a puppy, she was in the small dog area. They told me yesterday that she's been nipping the heels of the small poodles and they can't handle it so they moved her to the big dog area to see how she did. They said she's super confident with them and had a great time but is still nipping. They're main concern is her nipping a bigger dog and it corrects her too harshly and ruins her confidence of big dogs. She doesn't nip my ankles but I also
  4. I have a BC (rescue) and a Wire Haired Pointing Griffon (also a Beagle, but she is not an issue whatsoever). My BC has a very strong (but very sweet) personality. That said, there are times when he lowers his body position and looks "intense" and then nips the hind end/leg of the Griffon. Of course, this rarely ends well. We have had many a fight in our house (mostly with only pinched skin, occasionally battle scars, but always sounding horrible!) and I want it to stop. I've started researching intensely and found some very useful information, and I determined that I need to start at square ON
  5. Hi everyone, I'm happy to have found this site! I hope it's okay to talk about Border Collie crosses. I have a 1.5 year old female Border Collie/Aussie cross named Jet. We have had her for about 4 months now, her previous owner wasn't able to keep her and we adopted her from them. She is a wonderful, smart girl. Very submissive and sensitive to any reprimands. I have taken her to basic obedience and she is very good with come, sit, down and leave it...EXCEPT when my 10 yo twin boys come running thru the house and she goes into full herding mode. She jumps at them and does air bites clac
  6. This Is probably a common age old problem by now regarding my 3 month old pup jack who keeps mouthing/nipping most of the time it seems to be in play but now and again say if i remove him from the couch or try to groom him with a brush he nips at my hands and snaps in the air in a rebelious way i know this is natural for pups but it seems to be getting worse with the nipping. I've read a few articles and the consensus seems to be with time outs stop play method but we have tried this now for over month and it hasn't stopped or even reduced his actions we have also tried yelping and growling
  7. Hello fellow dog people! I am new to the boards and to border collies - last weekend I brought home Laika, who is 8 weeks old and an adorable ball of energy! I've wanted a BC for a long time, but until a few months ago I was a full-time college student and didn't think I should get such a high maintenance pet with so many constraints on my time. But I graduated (hooray!), and could finally get a BC puppy (SUPER HOORAY!) I feel like even after all the reading I've done over the past years I am STILL amazed and a bit overwhelmed by how smart and energetic the breed is, particularly since
