Kash, Our Border Collie-Aussie Mix Took A Trip
Border Collie-Aussie dogs are smart. They are also know for being rambunctious and fidgety. Not one to sit still long periods.
Well Kash the Dog goes into what we call vacation mode! He changes from his never stop moving self, to a calm, very good passenger/traveler who doesn’t bark unless provoked.
We travel two lane roads when we go on vacation. This August we went from South Bend, IN to Bend, OR on highway US 20. It took us right through Yellowstone Park. Of course, our Border Collie-Aussie dog Kash was with us!
We would make it a daily goal to find a clean, clear body of water for Kash to swim in. He has been swimming all over the United States and even once in Canada! He has been in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, all the Great Lakes, and countless rivers and lakes.
Kash loves to swim. He can’t wait for you to throw a stick! Sometimes he makes believe you threw the stick and charges out into the water like he is fetching something – just for the heck of it!
Kash the Dog likes to charge waves rolling in with his mouth wide open. What a shock when he does that in the ocean and gets a mouth full of salt water! He is used to swimming in Lake Michigan, nice “fresh” water. His nose wrinkles up and he spits and sputters with salt water.
All in all, we always seem to have a good time on vacation. It really helps when your dog is well behaved. I attribute it to the online dog training course we invested in when he was a puppy. You can check the dog training course out here. Best Dog Training Course
Border Collie Aussies are smart. Sometimes too smart. They can learn bad behavior as easy as good behavior. So train your Border Collie-Aussie dog right and you will have a lifetime of awesome, loyal companionship from your dog.
