billiegirl Posted September 20, 2007 Report Share Posted September 20, 2007 Okay....I'm afraid of annoying folks with my incessant questions. But, here goes. Sophie is now exhibiting more and more and more herding types of behavior (i think? ). I recently posted that she seemed to be growing sooooo quickly and now, certain things seem more acute. Today (after the debacle of the toddlers in strollers fear), she was really really intently watching strangers from afar. When we were walking on our local university campus (late at night as very few people are wandering around) she would see someone - perk up her ears and sit really erect - she would watch them....lay down....watch them.....sit up and sometimes even flatten out while we were walking and she was still looking at them. I'm talking about 10 car lengths away! Now, I've been planning on training her in agility, but now, I'm wondering if I shouldn't change my mind. Is it just the border collie instinct and should I focus on agility? or should I find out if she has the natural instinct for stock work? advice?
