We've also been working on handling. Not "overly" impressed but a great shot none the less!

  How does your dog welcome you home?
Posted by: phoebeandjosie - 03-18-2017, 11:16 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (10)

Josie greets us with a long happy howl every time we come home, feels like she is saying 'I was waiting for yooooou!!' Then lots of nipping and tugging at our clothes generally followed by a dramatic roll onto her back for a tummy rub.

  Baby it's hot outside
Posted by: Rambopup - 03-18-2017, 02:23 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (14)

I know every dog will be a little different but I thought I'd see if there was a chart or something something that had time frames for dog activity vs how hot it is outside. I just don't want to put our pup in an overheating situation. Or maybe a good rule of thumb for how much water they should have depending on the level of heat?

Posted by: SarahElizabeth - 03-17-2017, 06:00 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi everyone,

 It's been a while since I've had to write anything. This is Gunner the love of my fiancé and I's life. He is the most loving and sweet boy. Our only issue currently is when we are gone he is chewing on our baseboards! We live in an apartment and don't gate anything off he has free roam it's beenlike this since he was 5 months old and he has done wonderful besides this last month! Im gone for 6 hours Mon-Fri we have tried "yuck" spray but it did not bother him a bit. He knows it's wrong because when we come home he runs to his bed very guilty looking. When i come home he gets plenty of different exercises and has acess to a lot of chew toys we really while I'm gone I don't want to crate him for 6 hour shift anyone have suggestions?! Is Is he just too young to leave out alone, if so why was he perfect months ago? Help ❤
