Cowsavy Posted October 28, 2002 Report Share Posted October 28, 2002 I know you are getting tired of my questions but how else am I going to fine out things. I have several people say you don't want a dog that is parents have been uese on sheep mostly, because they have bred the bite out of them. Is this true? I have a stock of Border Collies that come for sheep stock. They are all red and white and throw all Red and white pups. But they sure have the bite and the courage too. One of my 3 mo old pups got out of the pen and killed 2 goats. At least she was the only dog out when they got killed I didn't see it but I did the goats. These were full grown goats too. Is is that they are stoped biting before they really start or is it bred out of them? I let mine bite but try to not let them hang on. This I don't like and I try from day one to get them to bite on comand but this takes a while a long while most of the time. I also get good results on the biting on a peice of intertube on a string I can get the comand down pat with the tube but seems to take them a while to transfer the take hold comand to stock, and susjustions.
