WTMcVey Posted October 10, 2003 Report Share Posted October 10, 2003 Hello, I am currently training my first border collie to work (17 months). She knows come-by, away to me, there, down, that'll do, and a few other commands. She has so much natural ability and such a sense of balance and is so willing to please but I have one little problem I can't get the kinks worked out of. I am using "Back Off" as a command when I want her to turn and go straight away from the sheep. She will turn away but she usually veers to one side or the other, whichever way puts her in better balance.Any suggestions on how I can correct it? Also, I've been considering starting to use a whistle? Any sugggestions on what kind to get and where to get it? Thanks, Travis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
