  1. Hello! I'd like to get a Border Collie. I've been thinking about it for a while now and I'd just like to run some things by people who have experience with them to get some feedback first. I want to be prepared etc. Is a Border Collie right for me? I live in the suburbs my yard is quite "average" in size, but by no means is it tiny or anything. I jog in a large park every day for at least 1.5 hours (usually more) and I'd love a jogging partner. I'm home most of the day as I do part time study and I'm working on setting up my own business. I'm actually studying animal behaviour

I put his kennel under the pergola facing the windows so he can see in, and he's just started to use it
  4. My dog is an 8 year old Sheltie and he grew up in the house. I have moved in with a family member who's allergic to dogs so he needs to live outside now. He's alright with being outside all day, he still gets his walks etc. I've just bought him a new kennel and he's never used a kennel before and I don't know how to get him to stay/sleep in it or even just like it in general. It's a large kennel and he can fit in it nicely. I've put his bed in there and a couple of his toys too. I've taught him that when I say "kennel" he goes into the kennel. I taught him that with treats and pats (positive
