Hi Jessica 🙂
It sounds like your providing the dog with a reasonable physical outlet in the form of walking which is awesome!!! you could absolutely vary the physical outlet to engage her drive tendencies in the form of hunt and retrieve games which could offer another level of engagement and relationship and allow for early implementation of…[Read more]
I tried to give an acquaintance of ours a ride on the cart a few days ago. While getting him dressed in his harness she walked up and he almost lost it.
I had to give him a heel and sit command to keep him from going after her. The only other time he has acted that way since I have had him was the vets office.
Put him up. Taking all the…[Read more]
If you just want different scents they make pre-packaged scents you can buy on-line if you have something specific you want. I don’t remember the website, they had everything from explosive-drug detection scents.
Myself, I have used spices diluted in water to lay a trail to the actual bottle, deer sheds (antlers), I have gotten some stuff from…[Read more]

Hello. I am about to start training my collie in scent detection. Nothing competitive, just a fun activity. Normally When I train scent detection, I use the pheasant or duck liquids that are available online, but would like to use something different this time. I would like to know what do other people use for scent? Thanks,
After a set back today I am starting to think it is possibly combination of fear of being rehomed, going back “home” and/or dog parks.
He was having the behavior today when I pulled up to talk to a client, when he saw all the dogs they had he got extremely excited, bouncing around the cab like mad wanting out to play. I didn’t let him.
When we…[Read more]
We drove for thirty minutes before he saw scenery that set him off. I missed the worst part. Thought I had pushed record and hadn’t. This is after he had calmed down some so missed much of the whining, scratching, shaking off etc. When he gets in this mode he has real hard time holding commands. I cut out where I had to drag him off the steering…[Read more]
He is an exceptional dog in so many ways. Unless another crops up this post and his “scenery anxiety” tied to dog park looking roads are last 2 main lingering issues.
He is now tracking sheds, had him on animal tracks a couple times.
Original thread on him.
Chet. He has just turned 14 months.
I take him to work every other day, sleeps inside every other night, and half and half between kennel, and yard rest of the time.
We follow leadership to a T because of his history, although he hasn’t really shown any dominance, or aggression, other than fear aggression over hands towards us. He sits for his…[Read more]
