Collie herds in front of car when coming in drive


Recommended Posts

My Father recently got a young border collie to work with his cattle on the farm. He lets it run loose and has a problem with Buddy herding his car right in right front of it when he comes home. He has to go super slow for fear of hitting Buddy. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to break him of this habit? (Dad's had herding dogs in the past and this is the first one to do this.)


Help please!! Thanks. Janell

The dog should not be left loose. When it is not working, he should either be with someone or be confined in some way. In the house, in a crate, in a kennel run, etc.


One way or another, a dog left loose is liable to cause problems with the stock; get run over; leave the property and get into trouble with the neighbors' stock, cats, dogs, whatever (and maybe get shot or poisoned); etc.


This may be the first dog that has behaved this way with your dad, but a loose, unsupervised working Border Collie is an accident waiting to happen.


Good luck with solving the problem.
