TxMom Posted April 13, 2015 Report Share Posted April 13, 2015 I don't want to hijack the parlor trick thread, but it got me thinking and I wanted to ask a question. We're looking at adopting a Border Collie (adult) in January, and one of the things I'm counting on to keep the dog busy and out of trouble is learning parlor tricks. We'll go for daily walks and do agility or something as well, but I'm counting on the fact that even if it's freezing and pouring rain and I have three sick kids and so on, there will still be something we can do. Are there indicators I should look for that would help make sure we get a dog who will enjoy that sort of thing? I'm not too concerned about the pace of learning, but I do want to be sure it will be engaging and sufficiently challenging. Is that something I should be concerned about, or is it pretty much a given? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
