Can a Border Collie-Aussie Mix Dog Understand English?

Kash, who is a more of an Aussie than a Border Collie most days…

My Border Collie-Aussie mix dog certainly does understand English.  Or at least the sound of the words and what that word or sound means.  So I throw in some really offbeat sounding words every now and then just to get his head cocking.

Of course Kash knows what “get Shelly” means.  When I say that, he charges over to Shelly and pokes her with his nose, or play bites her hand (which is not always good).  It makes her so mad that he listens to that command so well!

He know the words “squirrel” and “chipmunk” and when hearing them sprints to the arm of the couch and jumps up on it to look out the window for them.  He has caught a couple chipmunks and pulled some tail hairs out of a squirrel, so he know they are a challenge.

He has a favorite squirrel tree on the back property line in the woods.  It is a winter home for a grey squirrel.  He sneaks up on the tree and when he gets about 10 yards from it, he busts ass over to it jumping on the tree like he was going to climb it.  He barks his sharp Aussie bark over and over.  Then he waits for me to tap the tree with a stick to see if the squirrel will come out.  This happens every day, like a routine on our walk. What a nut!

This is what we are using to control fleas and ticks this year for Kash.   It’s proven to kill all life stages of 4 major tick species, including those which may carry Lyme disease.  We have a lot of ticks on our property so we have to use some kind of protection.

One of the best things is it’s waterproof, so your Kash will remain protected during and after baths, pond swims, swamping and rainstorms.
