sharatk Posted October 12, 2014 Report Share Posted October 12, 2014 Hello All, I started off my search with a female puppy in mind. Now as I talk to people and read more, I think that males are more cuddly and biddable. They say females are smarter(Did I say schemy), more independent and tougher to deal with. For example, I saw that to correct a dog they lifted him by his collar fur and jolted for about 4 seconds. This kind of thing is beyond me, so I would ideally want a dog, where I do not have to resort to such things. I understand that you have to be tough with the dog sometimes and positive reward system doesn't work 100% of the times. But I would like to limit myself to maybe a gentle smack to the hind legs or spraying water at his face. Many of you owned more than a dog. Can you share your experience with dogs in general and border collies in particular. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
