BorderlineCollieaholic Posted January 18, 2009 Report Share Posted January 18, 2009 For the past week whenever I let Bandit out of his crate and take him outside, he will run as fast as he can till he is about 15 feet away, then whirl around and lay down as if I had given him the command. He'll just stay there staring at me with this amusingly serious expresssion until I take a step towards him, at which point he gleefully runs to me for a rub. Is this something Border Collie-ish, or just puppy play? Also, I realize Bandit is four months old and some rough and tumble behavior is expected, but lately he has developed a love of running top speed towards our nine year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and barreling into him, knocking poor Baxley over. Is there any way I can discourage this behaviour? Baxley is small and elderly and tolerant, but even though Bandit is just playing I feel that Baxley could unintentionally be hurt.
