  1. Border Collies

    General Dog Discussion
    I was wondering if anybody who owns or has owned a Border Collie could give me some insight as to what kind of dogs they are. I'd like to get one some day (not anytime soon as I don't have the money nor the room for one right now) and would like to know as much as I could about them. I wouldn't...
  2. Bad luck with service dog prospects!! Is it me?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    This might be a long post, so I'll just jump right in to it. I can't seem to find the right dog for me. Maybe it's just me.. In less than 2 years I've had 5 different dogs (awful I know). I got them with the goal of training them to become service dogs for myself. My first prospect pup was a...

  5. Border Collies: Dream Dog or Maniacs?

    Dog Breeds

  7. my dog is very aggressive to walk

    I have a 7 year old border collie, who is a dream in the house. Very clever, listens to all commands etc. As soon as i put her collar on she is crazy, a totally different dog. When we get out she pulls very hard, she is very excitable. This is an issue in itself, but it is something which can be...

I tried spraying him with water, yelping, chew toys, and leaving the room. I puppy proofed a room for...

    The "breeder" said she is a lab and a border collie mix, but I don't see much of the collie in her.

  13. Agility Training--"Carry On"

    Dog Performance Sports
    Ok, so let me explain... agility is a tough sport. You are essentially remote controlling your dog through an obstacle course through a series of cues that include the intentional and unintentional. When you begin it seems like it should be easy, your dog listens and likes to run, right? Once...

  17. Brushing my new border collie cross

    Dog Grooming
    He is about 2 years old and if he was ever brushed before, he didn't like it or wasn't taught how to be still. Claws too... yikes! Waaaay too long. But I'm OK on that. First trimming done and will do another tomorrow. For brushing, I am working on him a bit at a time, never more than a few...

    Dog Breeds
    When getting his or her first Border Collie, what advise or what should that person know beforehand? (or just anything about Border Collies period?) Also, if you could include less of the just 'basic' information and more descriptive or specific things to know that would be helpful too. :)
