  Finally Getting Help with Play
Posted by: Ember - 11-10-2017, 12:08 PM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (8)

Had the best play session today when trying to interview for a private consult. I think I finally see a few issues I didn't originally pick up on.

1) Possible resource guarding (even though she almost always before deferred, even to the cat)

2) I am working very hard to keep her in the game, but this was the first time she looked like she wanted to say

3) I may be correct in thinking that arousal is too novel for her

I'll use this thread to keep up our progress. We have a 1 hour 1-on-1 session with Denise Fenzi for this, so I'm finally getting some real professional eyes on us. And yes, I fully expect that most of the changes are going to happen on my end. So, here's our first submission...

Time: 2:08 minutes

  Nov photo contest.
Posted by: only-borders - 11-10-2017, 05:46 AM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (9)

I think it's time to get this going again. 

This month's theme will be, Expressions. Show us how expressive your dogs can be. 

Photos can be posted until Nov. 30th at noon. Get creative and have fun. 

1. 1 photo 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.

  Rotating brands of food and Pinnacle dog food.
Posted by: Tasha's&Mattie'sMom - 11-09-2017, 06:23 PM - Forum: Health and Nutrition - No Replies

For the past few months I have been rotating the food I have been feeding the collies.  It has gone really well and the last time I switched food I mixed 50 old/50 new for a few days and that worked without any tummy trouble.  I think both dogs enjoy their food more now that they are not eating the same thing.  My last purchase was Canine Caviar Open Meadow, expensive but I had points at a pet supply store so I was able to get a huge discount.  This is the first food that Mattie had gobbled down!  Normally she is a bit distracted and uninterested in her food. 

There is a store that is near to me that sells pet food just started carrying Pinnacle.  Does anyone have an opinion about this brand?  It has a four star rating on Dog Food Advisor.

  Everything Has a Place
Posted by: Ember - 11-06-2017, 08:54 PM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (5)

Ember has a toy box. I keep toys in said toy box, mostly to entice her to dig them out on her own. For a long time she didn't, and only in the past few weeks or so has she started doing so - after very specific toys. Namely her favorites.

Up until now, this just means that I'll randomly find a toy in the middle of the floor in some random room.

Yesterday, Ember showed her first inclination toward "method".

3 toys. 3 places. Each a place she can be found resting. The odd space out is the mat on the cot - she doesn't necessarily like the cot (we haven't worked on it much), but she does love the mat that I put on it.

Bonus points if you can name the toys lol.

ETA: She did this in one sitting. I had cleaned up the toys that morning.
