Training the Collies

I do know that border collies are not collies, LOL who would know better? It’s amazing how many people get the names mixed up. And I think, in England, a border collie is called a collie, because when I search around I see a ton of border collies referred to as collies.

Anyway that’s neither here nor there. I’m just going to say collies from now on, when training our dogs, because it’s hard to say collies and BC. So there we go. 😉

We had a long day yesterday. We did some agility practice at noon, some obedience from one to three, and boy I was tired after that. I worked Levi’s weaves some, and he did super! Fast and he got the entires. We were out at a practice barn that Levi is very familiar with. Chase also did good with the short course we ran. He also, amazingly enough, paid attention to me during obedience too. At least for the first hour. After that I think I was starting to lose him. But that’s okay, that’s a lot of work.

Tatum also did well. I need to work eye contact with her, and a wait. Those are my top priorities with her.

Also, been toying with the idea of going on a cruise.. not with the dogs, but just me and some friends. I’m so excited I had to mention it here. It’d be to the western caribbean! I want to go scuba diving again! And I can bring my notebook computer too, as they have wireless on the ship!

  1. I was talking to my friend about a cruise today! Too Cool!

    There is a great forum (from England) that has alot of agility people on it. They chat about agility and flyball all the time. In fact… I went to the UK in October to meet some of them and I went to an agility show/competition in S. Durham, England. It was AWESOME. And as far as I know, they call them border collies and maybe collies just for short.. but they are still called Border Collies.

  4. Training a dog is really a hard task. It will require your patient. But also dont forget that they also are living creatures that also get tired so be easy on them.

  5. Hi Paulette, I’m one of the few in the world who understands how living the dogs are. In fact, I honor them as much as any human. They have emotions and fears and joys just like we do.

    Thanks for reminding us all how alive dogs are.
