Border Collies are an exceptionally intelligent breed of dog and excel in many dog sports. Think about all the ways we entertain ourselves and enrich our own lives; TV, Books, Friends, Gyms, Classes, Work, Road Trips, Vacations etc. What does your dog have? Imagine if you were your dog and lived the life your dog does from day to day, would you feel that you are living your life to the fullest? Would you be happy if you lived your dogs life?
Participating in dog sports with your Border Collie is a good way to bond, give your dog a job, and enrich their live...and your own! It teaches your Border Collie positive behaviours. The more positive things they are trained to do, the less time they have to think up naughty things to do to entertain themselves. Your dog needs a life too, and as an owner it is your job to make sure your dog is given the opportunities to live a good life. A couple of walks a day and food is not enough for any dog...let alone a highly intelligent breed such as a Border Collie. The majority of behavioural issues with dogs is due to lack of training, exercise and enrichment. Obesity causes severe behavioural issues and it is also our job to keep our dogs slim and fit. A busy and tired dog is a good dog.
Most good dog obedience training clubs offer classes for many of the dog sports listed below and after you have completed puppy kindergarten and basic obedience type classes, they normally offer them. We encourage all of our owners to try to participate in these events and look at it as a hobby you do with your dog!
If your dog from us earns a title, please let us know so we can post it on our honour roll page and keep track of it!
