I found this post via Facebook. There are several good videos in it. I'll pull the videos out and out them here as well for ease, but here is the article for full disclosure. Very very educational!

  My BC has some issues
Posted by: JacktheBC - 04-19-2017, 11:53 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (14)


My male BC Jack seems to be having some behavioral issues.  We don't know much about his past.  He seems to cower in the presence of some men and others he seems to really not like at all, he growls and barks pretty fiercely.  He is ok with most women.  We just had an incident the other day when my fiancée was walking Jack and our neighbor's intact black lab ran up to Jack and snapped at him.  Jack was very scared and didn't make it peep.  Now whenever Jack comes near a bigger dog he growls and barks.  He is fine with smaller dogs.

Is there anything we can do to help our boy?  I don't want Jack or anyone else's dog getting hurt.  Our boy is still an intact male.  We are getting him neutered next month.

  Kep Today
Posted by: Loyal Border - 04-18-2017, 08:05 PM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (6)

I decided to take a pic of Kep this morning while he was resting after a game of frisbee. This is the position he was in and I thought it made for a good pic.

When I went to review the pics I took so I could keep all the good ones and trash the bad ones I came across this beauty.

I love it when I catch a good pic of him in a goofy pose accidentally.

And as a bit of a bonus, here's a pic of Kep sitting at the table. My sister picked him up and put him there. I think he's happy to be allowed to sit at the table. Giggle

  Accelerating the Pooing...
Posted by: UKPete - 04-18-2017, 01:06 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

I walk Dash twice a day.  It often takes an hour of walking before he decides to have a poo.  I've tried walking him at different times, and different lengths of time after he has eaten, but no change.  Obviously it's not a huge issue, but at some point I will want to take him for a walk which doesn't last an hour.

Any tips?  Smile

Music Help with paws.
Posted by: S.crane - 04-18-2017, 07:49 AM - Forum: Health and Nutrition - Replies (2)

Poor Loki keeps damaging his paws,it's usually his carpel pads,so we got some carpel pads protectors for when we are doing anything that involves skidding to a stop and turning fast as that's when he usually does it.but this time he's damaged the main pads on both front feet.is there anyway to toughen up his pads a bit I think I probably need to do more pavement work as most of the stuff we do is on soft grass,sand and hiking trails but is there anything else we can try.

This is what he's  done this time,and I've had to bandage him to stop him licking and make it more comfortable for him to walk.

  The "Real" Enthusiasm Thread
Posted by: Ember - 04-17-2017, 06:26 AM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (5)

My other one got derailed (in a very good and helpful way), and I was able to get a video of what it was talking about. This is the enthusiasm I'm wanting Ember to bring to training. And I'm finding I can get it when I use her food for treats (even if it's incredibly hard to handle).

It's so cute and so fun - but incredibly frantic. The girl doesn't quit moving! This is what I have dubbed her "Snoopy Dance". I'm pretty sure Schultz probably had a dog like this at some point LOL!
