Re: Rally Question

Are you coming to the one down here? It is an obedience trial so your dog should be somewhat trained on leash for their first rally title. You don't need to have focus heeling but you shouldn't be able to use any training collars and that is kind of the point of the whole thing. I will be going to w...

Re: What is so wrong with grabbing a dog by the collar?

Unless you already know the dog is head shy than the dog might need some training but your average confident socialized dog shouldn't. I would have never thought twice about grabbing any of my dogs collars or the dogs I have handled and I don't even use collars on my own dogs.

Re: What is so wrong with grabbing a dog by the collar?

Grabbing your dog by the collar should not be an issue at all. It could potentially save your dogs life.

There is a good vet down here in San Diego if you are seriously interested and don't mind the drive.

Re: TUG-O-WAR... is it ok to play?

Having several high drive tugaholic flyball dogs in my house, I will admit I've been the victim of many a tooth on the skin, at times maybe a little more :eek:.., it happens. No total canine anarchies in my house, lol... I use the tug as a reward and motivator or to get focus and energy up before a...

Re: TUG-O-WAR... is it ok to play?

I'm not a fan of wearing gloves for some reason and handling a 35lb.border collie is easy compared to a team full of mouth chomping Malinois and a retarded Pit Bull. good god, you really do know it all, don't you. Thanks for your insight on handling a border collie - can you tell me your experience...

Re: Puppy Raising

Obedience is a given for a performance dog or any dog for that matter

Socialization with other dogs is not important to me at all The only thing that is required is to be manageable around other dogs.


Building confidence and drive would be my top priorities starting with a new pup.

Re: TUG-O-WAR... is it ok to play?

Wow, I'm impressed that most of you have only been nicked by a tooth here and there playing tug! Again, there has to be very strict rules and control with this play. It is not for someone to play if their dog doesnt know basic obedience nor responds to the owners commands. I know a little bit about...
