luvmybc's Posted March 24, 2005 Report Share Posted March 24, 2005 Hi-i have a 3 and a half month old puppy that is going to be a future herding dog. She has only been on stock about 4 times, and for no more than 4 or 5 minutes. She (i guess the best way to decribe her) is "high strung"...gets excited very easily and loves to run at top speed. My older bc, it just plain laidback in general, very calm and steady dog (when on stock... he doesnt ever ever break to "kill" the sheep or bite them). There are some dogs at practice that when put on a down, they cant contain themselves and all the sudden will break after the sheep..wanting to chase them. My question is that is this just a problem with the trainer or the dog? do some dogs just have more sense about the stock and therefore slow down and become steady? I know that she still is a pup and all the energy will slowly die off, but i have to admit that she is different than my male bc, more active, quicker and a non stop dog. I just hope that with the correct training and obedience, i can handle her. Im new in the herding world so please, if i have the wrong view of this just tell me politely.LOL Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
