silhouettestable Posted April 3, 2006 Report Share Posted April 3, 2006 Lightning's a BC/lab mix (mostly BC though, dad's a purebred, mom's a BC/lab), and he seems to love to do anything I ask, does well at it and begs for more. I've started him on some agility obstacles (jumps, tire jump, high jump, tunnel), he loves to catch (absolutely anything I throw his way - balls, snowballs, frisbees, kongs etc. big or small, heavy, light irregular shape, it doesn't matter, he catches). I bought a flyball box and after only a few tries one day he learned how to pop the ball out. He dogsleds eagerly and after working with him and getting him going well he's going to be my lead dog when the pups grow up and I start them. He just seems to be so willing and eager for ANYTHING, and great at everything I try with him. Is this the norm? Do most border collies have this ability to excell at everything they try? Another thing I was wondering, is it best to keep mixing it up and get him involved it all the various sports, or to focus on something in particular? I'm not likely to go out to competitions with any of it, we're just doing it at home for fun (except the dogsledding, we went to a few races where my daughter competed in the kid & mutt clases) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
