Nuance Posted May 31, 2021 Report Share Posted May 31, 2021 I joined this forum for a simple reason. I raise my dog alone and although i am experienced raising Border Collies those experiences don't alleviate the pains of raising a pup to maturity. Experience allows me to understand that all things pass and all days end , it doesn't shield me from any pain of day to day border collie process. I find comfort in knowing there are others who struggle in going through the same process. Me and the dog are a team. We are off leash. I build a relationship with my dogs i don't train them. I have one god/hardline command which is Stand!, everything else i teach my dog is optional. Communication is the greatest asset to relationship building and border collies are bred to communicate. I can only offer my perspective on my experiences with border collies, so if i comment its not advice its perspective. I wish you and your teams the very best . (p.s. i find typing and the internet rather arduous so i hope you can forgive my abbreviated / short comments or posts) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
