The pet and animal community
Your thoughts on Border Collies?
My friend has a border collie and he is a really good boy, really smart too. One thing that was really weird was that after a few years of knowing and petting him he started avoiding me like the plague. We didn't know why, we thought maybe it was that I had the odor of my own dog in my clothes or sth (I had a male belgian shepherd at the time and he is really large in size). Turns out since I had my nose clogged a lot when I was around him the sound of me blowing my nose made his ears hurt, so it seems border collies are really sensitive to noise.
I wouldn't want one unless I had work for it to do. That dog is too good to waste on being a regular pet.
They are black and white doges.
What happened to that dog's paw?
Got his period
There's a leaf in front of it.
There are a shitload of zoophiles here. Just visit any bird, horse, or big cat thread. And ask "anyafag" to link you to "the telegram".
They've driven all the normal people away.
>Conveniently leaves dogs out
>being this low iq
there are no zoophiles in dog threads, except those that raid from bird, horse, lemur, and big cat threads.
what about me?
Wauf is full of zoos. Probably a quarter or more of posters are one. My evidence comes from well established threads of almost any kind (as long as the animals in question are attractive to them) with 40-80 IPs suddenly shifting topics from completely benign conversation to either cryptozoo dogwhistling or outright admission and storytelling without the IP counter changing. I've observed it happening hundreds of times, and no it's not some ridiculous conspiracy. It's just a couple anons realizing the other is a zoo and getting excited about it, then often several more will join in. I bet there are still more who never post about it because they either don't want to ruin a thread with coomerism or they don't want to get banned.
But yeah the animal section on Wauf is full of zoos. It shouldn't be a surprise, and bitching about it too much will just get you trolled on.
This mostly happens in horse, bird, and big cat threads. Dog threads are extremely hostile to you fucks. Everyone who actually owns a dog goes on record saying all of you should be killed.
So you're saying a quarter or more of the posters are in /horse/ and the bird/big cat threads.
you're also evading over two dozen permanent, side-wide bans, the /dog/-preferring janny deletes most of the threads you make, and everyone hates you for making a telegram raiding group to direct /trash/ to Wauf
showed me your post on /trash/ where you said you were raiding /dog/ to make it more like /horse/ btw.
I literally don't raid. It's true I'm trying to make /dog/ like /horse/ but only because I both love doggos and like the culture in /horse/.
Now I care freely say in /dog/ how much Anya fills me with joy as she bites my hand without a ton voicing their intolerance of our company.
Oh BTW one of the jannies is a zoo.
This is a dog thread and anons are no more hostile than usual. A few will say edgy shit like you're doing and that's it. Sometimes a moral argument will happen where antis eventually fall back on "I don't like it, so it's bad", but it's always just a few people getting heated. Everyone else doesn't care.
Dog threads are more commonly made vicious by consolewar dog/cat preference homosexualry.
>Wauf is full of zoos
I don't know if it's a recent thing or if they've only become more vocal now, but it's not even just on Wauf, I've seen that happen on Wauf, Wauf, /tg/.
youre having a psychotic episode due to untreated schizophrenia. take your meds... NOW!!
I don't want to.
>Schizo conspiracy theory
No, it's literally what happened newfag. They weren't exactly subtle about it.
I wouldn't be surprised if you were one of the latecomer schizos who latched on to it for attention. That's a conspiracy theory, because this tagline
>Maybe dogfags are just more likely to be zoophiles
is part of the "agenda", apparently, of one resident shitposter who makes vlogs about how he is sure that dogs only exist because people fuck them and how he's "exposing butt sniffers".
I prefer the shollie (collie+German shepherd). Beautiful and intelligent.
Why do dog threads always degenerate intoi unironical bestiality posting
Only the horse and deer trhreads are worse
Maybe dogfags are just more likely to be zoophiles
There’s unironically some catfag schizo who samefagged essays about raping border collie for so long that he started attracting unironic animal rapists who started recruiting other animal rapists to come here
Only oldfags remember. Real dog owners HATE zoophiles, violently, so /dog/ went from very active to totally dead. Everyone left there is an animal rapist or very desperate for attention. It used to have 15-20 regular unique posters who actually owned dogs ffs. Not after that dog hating schizlord.
this. its Wauf specific schizophrenia drama. they even have a telegram dedicated to raiding /dog/ and trolling “antizoo” posters into leaving.
all started by some crazy catfag, which is what inspired some of the seething cat hatred on this board.
if that's where the dogfuckers come from, what about the horsefuckers? and the deerfuckers? and the birdfuckers? and the other birdfuckers? and the lemurfucker?
Continued /mlp/ tourism
Finnish autist who used to or might still be a mod. Hates dogs and cats, especially cats.
/an/'s moderator until 2022. How did that happen? Hiro doesn't speak english goodly. That's how it happened.
Oh look the anti cat schizo is still trying to push this lie with no proof. I bet you post as often as you can about all cats being pests too. Seriously, touch grass.
It is literally what fucking happened.
The only theory involved is with regards to who lit the fire, the lone schizophrenic catfag, or eevee's owner. That's the other thing, as soon as eevees owner started posting about "ovary sparing spays" the zooposting increased in frequency, and ovary sparing spays are linked to zoophles. Perhaps that weird german fag started it (guess the laws in europe...), and the cat schizo latched on to exploit it for his personal anti-dog agenda and shitposted to enhance and further that drama. The ovary sparing spay fag, prior to that, was posting about how he carried a glock and massive magazine to the dog park, and saying his dog saved his life, rambling about having grenades thrown at him and shooting people. Want to bet on a psychotic break? The catfag schizo was already psychotic and had been trying to push this fantasy land for months at least
>Catfag schizo narrative:
>All dogs eat their own shit
>And then dogfags let them lick them in the mouth
>Dog owners pick up shit with their bare hands
>All dogs kill toddlers
>All dogfags fuck dogs
Whoever started it, a catfag schizo was heavily involved, and it resulted in /dog/ completely dying, going from nearly two dozen unique posters who actually own dogs to 3-5 in any thread, of which 3 are likely zoophiles who are strongly against spaying and neutering. The actual dog owners scattered back to other boards.
Had the schizos not schizzed out, there would be less anti-cat schizo posting, and /dog/ would probably still be alive.
towards the end the catfag schizo was relishing in "dogs being banned from Wauf", tells you where his mind was.
>bro I just want to have sex with dogs
Not clicking that shit nigga
Re-evaluate your life choices
I clicked it for you, it's a girl with a bad dragon dildo
Hot, now post a better link.
I have one, I love her, she is happy all the time and brings joy to my life
she breaks stuff and destroys my lawn but i dont care
Job bread. They are a made bread. They are made for a specific bread. Their genealogy is that of a specific bread.
What kind? I prefer a nice crusty potato bread
Rye breed is amazing. That breed is full of flavor.
I really need to learn how to make breed without the use of a breed maker.
Intelligent, driven, sensitive. Easy to overcorrect accidentally. I like a more resilient dog that isn't going to be traumatised if I accidentally step on it one time because I'm clumsy. I had a dog who would never, ever do a competition heel because I trod on him, but I stepped on his feet a few times when I was trying to train it, not just the once, fair enough. All I asked him for was loose-leash walking in the end.
But a dog that'll make an instant connection between being stood on once during heelwork and decide to never heel again? That would be a pain. I've trod on my current dog a few times, but he's got a sturdy temperament, and doesn't give a shit.
We had a nice family friend who tried to train our springer spaniel not to jump up by gently trodding on his legs when he did it. His response was to be much more cautious when jumping up at that particular man but you could see the temptation in him to jump up vs the associated potential pain. I think he thought it was accidental. I'd never in my wildest dreams do that, I loved him jumping up at me.
Might be a little less easier to train than border collies because they're so exciteable, so that's why border collies win the intelligence tests but springers are incredibly smart as well they're just so exciteable.
They're smart and just the right size
border cookie is almost as good as husky cookie
What do you do with this?
Create a tierlist.
What anon said.
Make your tierlist and post it here for us to judge,
Do you mean like a smart cookie?
The husky bell curve definitely stretches further to the right than the distribution for these little chinese student tier ankle biters.
No the sick fuck meant cookie like dog pussy
You know this? Dogfucker. Never respond to my posts again.
Everyone, especially everyone posting in dog threads, knows this even if they don't have a bitch to fugg or even if they would if they could
Where the tierlist at anon?
Majestic looking doge.
I consider her my best friend, she's with me 24/7. I know people who have them in apartments but they need space to feel good. I have her since a pup and she turns 8 this year. She's very handy when I need to find the kids , she keeps the chickens safe and allerts when people come on the property. I'm a logger and we go to work together. I never trained her but she knows exactly what I want ,when I ask her, seeking the kids,herding the chickens , chase the deer out the garden etc , it's a very nice animal to have but I recommend to have a farm. To give them a nice life. They like space.
She's a good girl.
She looks like one.
Most precious dog.
Bitey shits. Also can't even take certain heartworm meds lmfao.
I like how they look.
have a nice day degenerates
i don't think any amount of meds can fix that guy
Wow she's perfect. <3
Their owners are worse than pitbull mommies.
The other day I met a guy in the sudewalk walking a collie. He had all the dog gear you can get, long high visibility leash wrapped around his body and each three steps he stopped and gave some clicking signal to his dog to stop.
I mean he thought he was sheepherding or something in the middle of the city.
One in ten people passing around was looking like "wow what a smart dog"
While nine of ten people were like what the hell is this virgin creep doing, I hope he don't molest the dog
Imagine playing ball with a collie. Must be nice.
If you don't exercise at least a few times a week don't even bother getting them, collies are just pure energy and fun that have high demands but it's 100% worth it
Just know you might have to save your collie from getting hit by a car at least a few times a month and god help you if you live near people who like to bike a lot
I'd fuck one.
Theya are too small for that.
Need proof you're wrong?
Anon, a dog that small won't cut it. You're trolling.
Prove that it can be done without hurting rhe poor thing.
>step outside at 2 am to check on my fuse box in the middle of a blizzard
>border collie runs up to me, drops a tennis ball, and knocks it toward me with her nose
She needs more hobbies.
Did you throw the ball?
Yes. God. Then even maybe one more time because she got it back to me before I got back in side. Threw it from the steps and went back to bed.
I play fetch with her for a few minutes almost every day after work. Usually stop when she sits down without brining the ball straight to me. Sometimes earlier or not at all if I'm tired enough or the weather is shitty enough.
Have you done the thing where you order your dog to sit while having a treat in your hand, go and hide it, then go back and give permission to search? When I was a kid, that was one of my favorite games to play with our dog. When he was on the wrong track, I'd gesture vaguely to give him a hint.
Obviously I didn't realize it at the time, but that was a damn good way to train a lot of good things at once.
My dad has a springer spaniel whos really good at this, but he went deaf and can't hear the command now so he just sits there and looks at you instead of eating his food. He's too good for this world.
Ahh shit wrong person.
>border collie runs up to me, drops a tennis ball, and knocks it toward me with her nose
Was she your dog or someone else's?
Dashhounds are too small unless you're a micro penis
Depends on the breed and how much you're planning to stretch
This comment is so dumb on so many levels. And clearly illustrates why you cannot take anything 'muh small dogs bad' retards say seriously.
My guy sheds 24/7, it does intensify as the transition from winter to spring hits. Like any dog though, constant brushing will mitigate a lot of the shedding, I brush him every 2 days or so and combined with the air purifier It's more than bearable.
>This is strongly correlated with spaying and neutering. So is epilepsy (but only for this one single breed).
Interesting, my guy isn't neutered but I always thought this breed was just especially susceptible to arthritis. My guy has it pretty bad but in all honesty, the medication I have him on is inexpensive and has worked wonders. Also my vet recommended a medication which was recently approved to be used in Canada called Librela and it supposedly works wonders.
I'll give all of those a read later.
Thank you anon.
>This is strongly correlated with spaying and neutering.
>So is epilepsy (but only for this one single breed).
That's very interesting.
Got some literature for me to take a look at?
Thanks to this thread I'm strongly considering getting myself a collie when I move in the next couple of months.
I've had mine for 13 years and I don't live in a rural area, I'm in a major city.
- Very fucking smart, to the point they practically train themselves.
- Very cute, they get lots of attention at dog parks if you like chatting with people
- Rewarding in the sense that you will get as much out of them as you are willing to put in, this means you can teach them cool tricks, you can play with them, run with them, even compete with them or actually utilize them for herding if needed.
- Loyal af, if you are their leader they will follow you to the end of the earth (same can be said for most dogs that aren't tiny though)
- Overall I'd say they are a great size, not too small and not too big.
- They are brave as well, my border collie squared up with a coyote that was way bigger
- They are also super fun to just play with, frisbee or fetch they love to play and they never get tired, they also are fond of swimming (at least mine is)
- They have double coat so they shed A LOT, air purifier definitely recommended.
- Not ideal if you can't be with them for most of the day, they really are not the type of dogs to leave home alone for 8 hours while u work.
- They require a lot of stimulation and activity, they will always want to play and if you don't provide enough stimulation I imagine they would become destructive and misbehave (like most dogs but this breed is prob the worst for that). My guy is 13 and still wants to play all day.
- They are practically guaranteed to get arthritis but good news is that there are great medications that really allow them to continue being happy even with arthritis.
- They are not the most social dog unless you specifically train them to be social with other dogs (my guy is more than happy to sniff a dog and wag his tail but he has never actually played with other dogs)
I def recommend them IF you know what you're getting yourself into, a lot of them end up in shelters sadly. Not the most "beginner friendly" dog imo.
That sounds wonderful.
Will consider one for my next dog.
>muh small dogs bad
damn all those words and then you completely discredit yourself
>>muh small dogs bad
They are though, only zoos disagree.
Why would zoos like dogs they cant fuck?
I see that the thread got sanitized.
What do you mean
janny did his job
I prefer the kind of collie that is most likely to save me from a well
Based! Had a rough collie as a child. Switched to Shetland Sheepdogs after the collie died until my mid 20s.
working breeds are best breeds
if your pet doesn't fulfill a practical purpose and is just a glorified teddy bear or surrogate child then you're doing it wrong
>if youre not larping youre doing it wrong
now go hunting
11/10 dogs if you have the time and space to train them and keep them busy.
Home wreckers if otherwise.
Npc dogs, if they were human they would be wh*te, triple vaxxed and have a trans flag sticker on their shitty electric car
How much activity daily border collies need?
What's the best way to get it in big city?
I've heard they need a ton of exercise and mental stimulation or they get neurotic and destructive. Probably not going to get that if you live in a big city. Maybe if you're a retiree who spends hours taking your dog everywhere you could do it. If you work 40 hours a week you should not get an active breed. At least not a young one.
Incredibly based but probably the most demanding dig breed there is...also bad around children as they are known to herd them
>also bad around children as they are known to herd them
Little shits really need herding tho
>also based around children as they are known to herd them
Tell me more about how border collies are better than women
>.also bad around children as they are known to herd them
how is this bad?
because they can nap / bite
if you want a bc, own a farm with a herd of animals they can tend
if you can't, you are denying them what's been bred into them.
they are really fucking smart and will outwit you in certain situations.
t. owned two growing up
I would get a Border Collie if I could commit to owning one but I can't, thinking about having to go for walks 2 hours every day for the rest of my dog's life is too much to accept
walking is good for you my friend
>thinking about having to go for walks 2 hours every day for the rest of my dog's life is too much to accept
It's honestly comfy and becomes routine very quickly as long as you have some nature around you. Even on days when I'm in an utterly shit mood and dread leaving the house I end up in a much better place just because my collie knows our schedule and gets us Wauf. Also, I frequently lose track of time in my local forest and park just hanging out with the dog. Way better getting outside in all sorts of weather than burning that free time online
>have 7 month border collie
>she's trained well enough to avoid eating shit/bones/whatever when ordered, but will still happily eat them when not watched
>every walk is extremely annoying because the need of constant oversight
They're herding dogs, 2 hours is 2ay too little. Do more research on a breed before considering getting any s dog.
Bro what, I take Peter for 2, 3 mile walks every day and 3 during the weekend, it's fucking kino, I either get baked and listen to music, or talk to mom's/hoes it's fantastic
it may be autism but I prefer dogs that only have one color
they're pretty great
are they the fastest doggo? or among the fastest?
few breeds can go faster like greyhounds but borders are pretty fast yes
Theyre fine but their keener brownnose attitude isnt for me
They are superior to Australian shepherds.
Ah yes, a Bouncy Round Object. BRO is to Border Collies as toddlers are to Pitbulls
built for BRO
Notice how the black ones can jump higher
Lol its the same one doing all the booping, the rest are just NPC
Would I survive this vicious attack if they were adult Border Collies? My dad says no
Cute and intelligent dogs that are just the right size.
What do you mean with right size?
Smaller dogs aren't as fun to play tug of war and the like with, and larger dogs usually come with all kinds of health issues and a shorter lifespan on average, besides taking a lot of space, Border Collies exists in that perfectly balanced space on the dog size spectrum, basically.
I thought Border Collies were a small dog. Labs or German Shepherds are more like "real" dog size dogs.
As far as I'm aware, by average size and weight, they are smack dab in the middle between the tiny and giant breeds.
They are, this guy's just coping with his sissy dog
Only furries speak like that
A border collie requires more space than most bigger dogs. Fucking things need a high country station to run around on, and a couple thousand sheep.
Old post, smart take. My 15 year old Border Collie is getting ready to pass. She's the best dog I could have asked for. Funnily enough, she was returned to the local shelter twice for her high energy. Loved to go hiking and on walks, she could Frisbee for hours, and she was great with other dogs/cats. We have a so-so sized yard but I never had issues with her getting bored/destructive during down times. It probably helped that when she hit 5 that my mom started keeping chickens. She loved guarding them and keeping away the hawks.
They definitely aren't the breed for everyone. They're active and need things to do but my experience was nothing but pleasant.
Fuck... Hope your pooch lives for a few more years anon. Lost my dog a year ago,same age as yours...
Feminine homosexual breed
Imagine being so insecure you feel the need to insult dogbreeds.

Who said that?
How is it feminine?
