Training Overview: The Border Collie Puppy

Keep these Five tips to keep in mind when training the Border Collie puppy.

1. You will need to puppy-proof your home before puppy comes home. This includes removing any doggie dangers like items that could injure a puppy, such as harmful chemicals, etc.

2. For the safety of your puppy and your belongings, create an area of confinement for puppy using baby gates or his crate.

3. Be sure that you have a dog-safe yard, free of tools and fertilizers and enclosed by a sturdy, escape-proof fence.

4. Your puppy shopping list will include a crate, bedding, bowls and food, a collar and leash, ID tags, grooming equipment and several safe chew toys.

5. Take it easy during your pups first few days at home. When you're ready to venture out for some important early socialization, give your puppy positive experiences. You might consider a puppy class, too.

We have a seven month old border collie named MYA We realize that this breed is high energy, but we can't seem to be able to connect commands to her. She is very intelligent and we love her alot. She has a mind of her own and will not obey us when she doesn't want to. She totally ignores us and tries to bite us. Other times she is a love bug. We are so confused and would love to have some direction on what to do. HELP!!!!!!! We are desperate!!!!!
