Border Collie Mix – Is It a Blessing or a Curse?

Kash, a Border Collie mix puppy certainly displays a lot of “smarts” but also has some hard to handle border collie traits.

I was certain that there was no problem, me, being able to handle the bundle of energy that a Border Collie Aussie mix can bring. Boy, do both my wife and I have our hands full!

If it wasn’t for the dog training program Dog Training Secrets, I am not sure we would have lasted this long.  We are finally getting the biting under control.  Like the puppy training program said, it takes persistence, patience, and commitment.

He doesn't always like to be told what to do!

Our ongoing training starts before we let him out of the crate in the morning.  We tell him to “sit” before he gets let out, and then to “lay down” before he let out the door to go outside.  Tomorrow we are going to teach him to ring a bell that I will locate near the door.

We will teach Kash to ring the bell when he needs to go out, not necessarily when he wants to go out.  The bell will be located just high enough and off to the side of the door, so that he doesn’t just ring it by accident.  It will have to be a conscious effort.

If any of you has had success with “ringing the bell to go out” I would really love it if you would leave a comment in the comment box.  We are wondering how long it took to get your dog trained.

Kash sure does seem to learn fast, at least the basics.  How to stop puppy biting and how to stop puppy barking has been the challenge for sure.  He sure seems like he is strong-willed, or head-strong. I am not sure what you call it.  We call it defiance!  He is a little stinker, for sure.
