  June Photo Contest
Posted by: only-borders - 05-31-2017, 04:53 AM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (2)

This month's theme will be a little different from past contests. It is titled "A day in the life of ........" (fill in your dogs name) Your entry should be a series of 3 photos. Example: 1st pic is of your dog on a leash walking. 2nd pic is of a mud puddle. 3rd pic is of muddy dog.  

Photos can be posted until June 22nd at noon. Get creative and have fun. 

1. 3 photos, but 1 submission per member, your photo can be changed until the end of the contest.

2. The photo must be of your own Border Collie, or Border Collie's

3. Photoshop is not allowed unless the details of the contest specifically states that it is.

4. In the event of a tie, the organizer's decision will be final. 

This is meant to be a fun competition and another way of sharing images of our beloved dogs. Start snapping those photos.

  Pest Control (in this case ants).
Posted by: Tasha's&Mattie'sMom - 05-30-2017, 10:53 PM - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (7)

I don't know why but this has been a terrible year for ants. 

In the past my husband has used this:

I don't like it because it is in gradual form and I'm afraid it will harm many of the creatures that are in our yard (we are very careful to keep the dogs away from the treated areas).

I just bought some of this:

I like the idea of this product because I feel it is safer for wildlife and easier to keep my dogs from getting into it.  Anyone have any luck with this product?  Also, if you have had good results getting rid of pests with natural products I would love to hear about it.  I don't want to harm the wildlife in our yard or any pets that stray into the yard.  I would love to just let the ants live and go on about their business but they bite and leave little blisters, nothing like the annoying but harmless ants we had when I was living in the Pacific Northwest.

  Charity Dog Show
Posted by: Bronwen - 05-29-2017, 08:59 AM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (6)

There was a charity dog show in my local park raising money for a rescue centre.  We entered Bronwen in 3 categories - prettiest bitch, most attractive eyes and friendliest dog.  There were 40-50 dogs in each category with 4 going through to the final.  We didn't get a look in on the first 2 categories but friendliest dog I took a gamble and let Bronwen jump up at the judge as I know she hugs - she jumps up with her front paws only and wraps her front legs around your thigh and tucks her head in and cuddles. Well it worked! Not only did she get through to the final 4, she won! Rosette, trophy and goody bag with a toy and treats for Bronwen.

  Why is my dog still barking/lunging?
Posted by: Ember - 05-25-2017, 09:22 AM - Forum: Working Dogs, Sports, & Training - Replies (4)

A really great article came across my timeline on fear. Obviously, this is something close to my heart - and behavior is really just a fascinating ting in general.

There is some really good info on why some dogs seem resistant to fear-relieving-training, or bounce back to where they were (or worse) after just one instance.

  Her first trip to the groomers
Posted by: phoebeandjosie - 05-25-2017, 01:38 AM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (8)

Josie was getting dreadlocks behind her ears from all the swimming and I was way to nervous to attempt removing them at home without snipping her ears so off to the groomers we went. She came out like a giant pomerian fluff! So much furry bounce ? Wanted to keep her pristine for as long as possible but we ended up back at the beach today anyway!

  Ember: the Guard Dog
Posted by: Ember - 05-24-2017, 01:13 PM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (7)

... psh yea right lol.

I love how at first she's so gullible, and then at the end I just get this "really, mom - really?" look. She makes me laugh. I love her "thunder" noises and the ears the most.

Also the completely false bravado and practically begging me not to let the intruder in...

Time: 1:38
