Puppy Training Works for This Border Collie-Aussie Mix

Is the puppy training working?  Kash, the Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy has learned many basic commands and he has started to turn the corner on “stopping puppy biting“.

He was a four legged ball of fast moving energy that was into everything, biting whatever was in front of him, and then doing that puppy barking crap when you tried to tell him “NO”.  A pure stinker with talent for finding whatever might be loose, fits in his mouth, or is shreddable.

Kash the Dog

I told you early on that we did a lot of research before we even took custody of Kash on just how to train a Border Collie mix puppy.  We read a lot of information and a lot of it was the same.  The I found Dog Training Secrets and was convinced that this was what kind of dog training style we were looking for.

We were so pleased and agreed with most of the training.  I mean it was detailed and explained just what to do, but a couple things we had issues with.  Those two issues were “how to stop puppy from biting” and “how to stop puppy from barking“.

Now I don’t know if we were conveying the training wrong, or that we have a head-strong dog that may prove to be a difficult to train puppy.  He learned all the basic commands in a snap!  He is smart, but boy does he give us problems over those two issues.

Kash the Dog

I hope this isn’t sounding too negative about Kash.  He does respond so well to the dog training guide commands, and he is incredibly smart.  Handsome and so entertaining that until those snake-like fangs snag your hand or sweatshirt, he is a blast!

We will forge ahead with puppy training.  He is so worth it!

In a quiet moment, talk to your dog at his level, he will appreciate the conversation.
