Border Collie-Aussie Puppy & Healthy Dog Food

Hey Border Collie-Aussie lovers!

I have some really good news to report.  My Kash biting episode really, really worked!  He has been so good ever since I bit his leg!  Maybe he finally realized that I AM the Alpha dog leader in this clan.  That is my “stop puppy biting” dog training secret!

He has been such a “lover dog” the last few days.  He listens and behaves better than normal.  Kash is even showing some patience and calmness, something which he has not done before.  Almost scary.

Kash the Dog

Kash is losing his teeth.  We found one of his snake-like needle sharp fangs the other day. He lost both bottom “fangs”.  His top new nippers are in and bright white.  He has some back molars coming in too.  Maybe once these all grow back in he will resume chomping the heck out of my hands.  He better not or I’ll chomp him back again!

If you really want to learn about the best commercial dog food on the shelves, check out this dog food resource.  Dog Food Dangers It is chocked full of what to feed, and what not to feed your dog.  Highly recommended!

Ok, maybe you should read this, about dog food.  It might explain some stuff you may have been thinking about.  http://www.bordercollie-aussie.com/healthy-dog-food/

It’s SPRING BREAK!  Shelly, my wife, has the week off!  We might even take a day trip or two, to see how well Kash likes to travel.  We were so used to travelling with our previous dog due to her being paralyzed in her rear legs.  She was in a wheelchair for 7+ years of her 13-1/2 years of an amazing, wonderful life.  So hopefully Kash will really like to travel so he can get to hike in the coolest places.

I’ll let you know how it went in the next post.

Feed your dog healthy dog food, and then rub noses when he is done.

Stop Puppy Biting Issue Is Conquered. Border Collie Mix – Wow

The “stop puppy biting” issue may have been conquered.  More on this a little later.

I’m telling you, a Border Collie mix puppy is so full of energy that it zaps YOU of energy!  I have slept so soundly ever since we got Kash, our handsome little stinker.  That is because by the end of the evening, I am worn out from constantly removing the many thousands of things from his mouth that he finds.  Maybe millions!

He does love to run.

He he comes, blasting through the woods!

Kash the Dog

Okay, this is what I wanted to tell you about!  I think Kash is finally learning to “stop puppy biting“!  This is something we have been working on since the first week.  Our dog training guide has been the hero in this battle.

Kash is so darn head-strong that this has kinda become a battle of wills.  We have tried to stay consistent with what Dog Training Secrets teaches, and it finally is paying off.  Hats off to the guy that wrote this training guide!

The other issue we are working on before we go on to teaching other commands is the annoying “how to stop puppy barking” crap.  This has to stop.  I have never heard such a sharp, pierce-you-to-the-middle-of-the-brain, loud, in your ear bark!!!  Like I said, Kash is a little defiant guy.

Other than those two “take a little longer” training issues, Kash is a ultra fast learner.  When Kash is in the office when I am working, he will bring his water dish to me when it is empty.  He gently bumps my leg with it and makes a little “hmmph” noise.  It is so darn cute when he does that.

 

Border Collie-Aussie mix, stop the puppy biting.
He doesn’t look like the stinker I tell you he is.

Kash the Dog

It was a great day actually.  Little Kash is growing up.  He was well behaved today and has shown much better confidence in the woods, and had a lot of patience while I was working. So I am looking forward to another training session with my little Border Collie-Aussie puppy again tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted.

Love your dog.

Thomas
