Breed Specific Training Border Collie


The Border Collie is a bright, energetic, hardy working dog that is longer than it is tall and is medium-sized. Extremely trainable, these dogs are terrific for herding (especially sheep) but are also top competitors in many different kinds of dog sports from Frisbee to obedience.

Border collie training is a necessary part of training your dog.  This Border Collie is recognized as one of the most intelligent dog breeds.  they are clever and curious and can become destructive or neurotic if they are not matched with the proper owner who is prepared to provide this particular canine with the care, exercise, attention and training he requires to lead a happy and balanced life. Not the type of breed if you are a couch potato.

Border collie obedience training isn't’t only about teaching your dog obedience and control, it is also about having fun and spending quality time with your pet.  Hence, you can introduce your dog to many great tricks that he will enjoy learning and you will enjoy teaching. Due to the fact that these dogs have high energy, a great border collie training trick you can teach them is Fetch.  Fetching is a perfect way to amuse your pet, bond with him and let him burn some energy.  If this breed is not provided with enough exercise he will find other ways to release his frustration and this can lead to a lot of unwanted damage in your home and yard.   He will also be more difficult to control.

However, one of the best fetching items that is a lot of fun is a frisbee.  This is because when you let it fly it can soar through the air at a great distance and your canine can chase it and leap up into the air to catch it .Teaching your dog how to fetch is an easy border collie obedience activity.  What you will need are treats, and/or your clicker and a flying disc, preferably a soft cloth one.  The reason is plastic varieties can be easily chewed up and the taste of rubber frisbees is highly unappealing to most dogs. I hope you enjoy training your border collie, I know I have enjoyed working with them.
