Are border collies good with other dogs?
A border collie is an excellent hunting dog, but should never be left alone with a puppy or smaller dog. Not only will it be likely to run off, but there's also the danger of getting bitten. Border collies are great with all animals, but if they don't know other dogs they may not be happy.
How do I approach and play with a puppy?
Puppies don't play as well as dogs with years of experience, so get the ball, and try to distract them by throwing it.
How do I trn my dog to stop pulling on the lead?
Don't use a harness to lead a dog. Use a loose lead, and if it slips down to the floor, have the dog sit to hold it. When approaching something you don't want him to pull, you can distract him by holding a toy. If you do this in front of him, he may think the toy is a toy, rather than another dog. Use lots of different tactics, and be patient. Your dog will only learn by experience.
How do I control my dog's food eating habits?
If you think your dog is overeating, make sure you're watching him carefully.
What is a "joeys" collar?
A joey collar is an electronic device that fits around the dog's neck and will alert you if he leaves the given area.
What are the different types of dog trning collars?
A remote collar is for walking and trning your dog. It has a remote, battery-operated clicker. A receiver is worn around the neck of the dog. He wears it for the rest of his life. The clicker goes off if the dog is at a specified location. If your dog is wearing the receiver and you get your clicker out, he'll understand the meaning of the sound. If you want to go farther with this idea, then your dog should know he is to come to you when you click. This means he should only leave the location if he's on a leash. Your dog will only be trned so far if you do not allow him to go off-leash. This idea is great for walking trning. If your dog knows what you want him to do, you won't have to have to click in order to get him to obey. If you go farther with this concept, then you should give your dog a verbal command to come to you. If your dog knows the command, he should only come to you if he's on a leash. For instance, he should never come to you when you're carrying your purse.
A correction collar is one you put on your dog to give corrections or commands. It also can be used to trn your dog. It looks like a trning collar but it actually has electrodes on the dog's neck and shock to your dog if he misbehaves. This type of collar can be used on puppies as well. The mn use of this collar is for trning purposes. It's better to use a correction collar than an electric correction collar. The electrodes are easier to place on a puppy's skin. Remember, if your dog does not know what he's supposed to do, the correction collar is useless. If you trn your dog with a correction collar, make sure you take it off after the trning session is over. The electrodes can be left on your dog's skin. If you forget to take it off, you may accidentally shock your dog.
Some trners recommend putting a collar on a dog if he is old enough to behave properly. This would be a good idea, but you should do it when he is not so old. You'll avoid any accidents that might occur. Some of these accidents might include being shocked by a dog that's been wearing the same collar for some time.
## Trning Your Dog for Competitions
Competition is just another word for dog show. Show dogs have to perform like there's no tomorrow. Many people consider dog show competition a sport because people watch a competition, they can judge, and they judge based on what they see. They may also watch what the judges say to their dogs. This helps them tell what they think the dogs should look like and perform in a competition.
Like a sports league, you compete in shows. Dog shows are held throughout the United States and other parts of the world. You can find local shows or go on a website to locate shows near you.
Competition is just like practice when it comes to preparing a dog for the show. At practice, you teach him the moves you want him to do. At shows, you get your dog to do those moves. There's no reason to do your practice before shows. If your dog doesn't perform properly, the judge will ask why. You don't want to tell the judge that your dog doesn't behave well in a competition. You want to have him ready to perform when the moment arrives.
You have to be prepared to show your dog any day of the week, even if he doesn't have a show. At some shows, you can't be there, but at other shows, you need to be there. You need to be prepared.
At your first show, you need to do a few things to make sure your dog performs. You want to make sure he has the attitude you want him to have and that he has the drive to perform. If you have the dog you want, you're ready. The first step is to take a little time and work with your dog. You don't want to trn him before the show. You want to have him already trned and showing you that he's ready.
When you're planning to bring your dog to a show, find out if there is any class that is a combination of a little bit of the obedience and a little bit of your dog's breed. You can't be a good conformation show dog with no basic obedience. So if your dog has a breed class in the show, you can take a bit of what he does and bring it in the obedience class to make him a better dog.
At your first obedience class, take the time to get your dog to sit before you set up your course for obedience. When you first go to class, tell the judge that you want him to be on notice for the first thing he has to do. In this case, you want to sit and have him sit before you even begin working. You don't want to spend your time doing other things. When you go to obedience class, you don't want to be running around, and you don't want to be doing other dogs any of their tricks. You just want to concentrate on your dog. You want him focused on you. When he's trned correctly and on notice, you can then do the course.
You should work with a lot of the judges who will be judging your dog at his first obedience show. You don't want to make your first show at an unfamiliar show. At that first obedience class, you want to make sure you work with the right judges to get a lot of feedback. This helps you trn your dog properly and build his confidence.
**TRNING FOR YOUR DOG**
**R USING TELEPHONE RINGS AND THE LIKE**
For the most part, you shouldn't be using the telephone to ring and hold your dog while you trn. It's like telling your dog to sit at home and watching TV while you're away on business. While most dogs are fine with this, your dog still views the telephone as another reason to take your attention away from him. If you use the phone to call your dog or to play some music, you may be creating
