rushdoggie Posted December 15, 2013 Report Share Posted December 15, 2013 So, my dog doesn't seem to respond much at all to my physical pressure either on livestock or off. He can usually find balance on the sheep but now and then I want him to back off and he doesn't seem to get it. I can move right into him and he just looks at me quizzically. I noticed that he doesn't respond to pressure from me in the house, I can walk right into him and he will stand there when all my other dogs (non Border Collie and Border Collie alike) will move off when I get to a certain closeness. Its odd because he is super sensitive and you'd think he would be easily pressured when I got close to him but no. So, I wondered if there was some way this could be taught maybe outside of livestock work or if he just is how he is. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
