    other anons are somewhat right about the sheep herding OCD, make sure the breeder specifically breeds the BCs as family dogs instead of working farm dogs, unless of course you're going to use them as farm dogs.
    taking them out to exercise for a couple hours a day in your million acre back yard wont be enough for a working collie

    wow, no disgusting comments so far. I was expecting to come into this thread and roll my eyes at the most dun to death joke on this board. Just keep things wholesome. Don't bother trying to provoke me by suddenly saying that stuff. I won't be responding.

    >squeaky ball preferably small(one that is durable and loud)
    >durable fetch ball
    >herding ball
    >soft frisbee
    >tug toy
    >gentle leader, halti or similar (not canny collar or back attachment ones)
    >Clicker
    >Extendable target stick with clicker
    >at least one Kong classic of a suitable size, these are to fill with food, lots of options (not sure if your collie is a puppy?, there are puppy ones if so)
    >harness with front attachment (use this on them first and for quite a while before moving to the gentle leader when they are a bit older and in distracting environments)
    >Snuffle mat
    >slow feeder bowl
    >a bunch of suitable chews like bully sticks, no raw hide shit, maybe learn to make good cheese stick chews at home those are cheap, this is to have something extra than the Kong with filling
    >Training treats, high value as possible, I really like using Providore it is like Ziwi Peak but am unsure those are available for you, look them up and find the equivalent and see if you can afford them as training treats, they aren’t cheap but highly motivating for dogs, also higher quality than the base diet you are likely to afford them
    >Also make sure you understand all four quadrants of operant conditioning and are able to use all four in training

      My sister’s BC died eating half a kong. These dogs are more autistic than smart. In terms of real intelligence I think they’re closer to thw herding spitz breeds but BCs have some overly eager OCD shit going on where doing something they’ve done before feels like eating a steak.

        Wtf? That is terrifying, do you know what kind of Kong it was? I’m pretty sure my cattle dog could easily do that to the pink and red ones, I’ve only been letting him have the black ones for a while now, the others he had started to get destroyed and I took them off him, he can wreck almost anything with those teeth of his

          A kong classic. The red one. Those are the kong classics.

          That same dog ran until he had a bloody paw

            Fuck that sucks Anon, sorry to hear that. My cattle dog is the same way, I have to be a helicopter parent to stop him from fucking himself up, he’s done the paw pad thing before as well while playing fetch because he skids like a baseball player sliding into home base when he gets the ball. He also rams his herding ball into shit until it gets jagged bits of plastic that scratch his face and I have to take it off him and smooth it out again then wait for his face to heal before I can give him another go at it, little psycho cunt but I love him

      ball preferably small(one that is durable and loud)
      Bad for dogs because they boost the mutt with dopamine no end turning it into a drug addict

      fetch ball
      Same here, dogs get addicted to fetching

      Not recommended too

        >turning it into a drug addict
        Yeah that’s literally the point Anon, you then use the addiction and high value of the toy to train them and do things, I’m guessing you don’t even know what prey drive recall is or how useful for a dogs safety that can be
        >halti not recommended
        Why? Do you even know what it is? Pretty standard piece of kit for training dogs, especially assistance dogs like my dog, or any dog that needs guidance to focus really. You sound like a “purely positive” only trainer that took a Petsmart class, and frankly that makes you a useless gay. Stick to cats chud

    How many sheep do you have? I sure hope it’s more than one because border collies are mentally ill and can only be satisfied with “dog sports” or herding sheep all day every day.

          No clue what that even means. If you don’t have several acres of private property, don’t get a border collie.
