Feral07 Posted November 15, 2013 Report Share Posted November 15, 2013 Hi Guys, I'm new here, I have a border collie who is 18months (Mostly black) and called Riley, and a border cross with a cocker she's 8 years old called Tess. Riley was a rescue dog I got him when he was 7months old, Training wise brilliant, within two days he was house broken apparently that was one of the reasons they handed him in, and boy did they abuse him and shout at him. If you shout he runs and hides below our bed and shakes, It could be shouting my husband for his dinner or there is a phone call. We don't argue He's scared stiff of black bags the one's that fit in your bin, he runs into a corner If he See's you putting boots on he wets the floor in fear. The biggest one is when outside on a walk or just in general he will bolt across the road to another dog to play with it, the road I live on is very quiet but all it takes is one car, He'll do anything if there isn't a dog sit stay down but add a dog, bang you can shout till you loose your voice nope he won't stop. If by accident my front door was left open that's what would happen ,,,,How do I stop this. Another thing is when he's between a walk and a full run he hops taking his back left paw off the ground, but a full speed run he doesn't. Tess doesn't do this, is this a collie thing? He's a dog that wants to please you all the time, and has so much character that he's a joy to live with. Thank you for your time Lynn Tess & Riley Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
