    Yer, I read in a book it said try to get her to mix with other dogs at 12 to 20 weeks. Or 10 weeks if she had her 3rd needle. Me and my mum want to take her to puppy pre-school and once she gets older take her to obeidence school I'm still trying to find some dog clubs because I don't want her to be like my other dog who was to agressive to other dogs. A Border Collie club would be a bonus to I'm still looking for some. Also yer I am kinda young but I want my puppy to have a good life just like my other dog too. My mum said when Zoey is 5 (When she is trained good) we can adopt a dog from RSPCA.

    How can I tolit train because we got wee pads and we just got her kennal today and my parents want her to sleep outside but I don't, but anyways how can I train her because shes outside now.

    Your local vet might run a puppy school, ring them up and find out.

    DOGS Victoria - Activities and Events - Clubs - Obedience Clubs

    This link is from the Dogs Victoria website and lists all the obedience clubs in Victoria that are connected to Dogs Victoria.

    There is also a BC club in Victoria but I guess a lot of those members will be in to showing their dogs. You can find the link on the Dogs Victoria website.

    With toilet training you can still toilet train her by giving her the command word and praising when she performs.

    2 minutes is not short at all. If you train a puppy that young for to long they will just get distracted/bored and want to ignore you. Remember, puppies have short attention spans.

    Also, just because your old dog was dog aggressive, doesn't mean your current pup will be. I had a dog aggressive dog, I also have a dog that loves other dogs and they lived together til I had to re-home the aggressive one (who went to a good home, he was not dumped at the pound) and my current girl is alright with dogs. I have two, the girl is the one alright with dogs and the boy is friendly with dogs.

    Yes, we heard that Border Collies get very bored so we kinda have to take her to puppy school.

    They can get bored but I mean, ALL puppy breeds will get bored if some one trains them for a very long period of time.

    By the way, good on you for wanting to learn so much!

    Thanks for the information guys just made training benji a bit easier. I thought i wasnt doing enough, but I think I am doing too much. He is only 12 weeks old and he can, when I am lucky (lol) sit, lay, come and starting to stay as well. Sometimes I can go from one to another quite easily.

    Just a few things the pup seems to be learning more from my hand movements rather than the word. Except sit but I think thats cause I usually stand to teach him that, but when it comes to lay or come, I usually bend down or crouch.
    Will he pick this up in time that word commands is what I am training him?

    Also anyone got hints for getting him to stay properly cant find much not sure if i am doing it right.

    I reckon i am doing pretty well cause I have only trained him for 2 days now, a couple of times a day.

    Have you read thread titled the triangle of tempation ?
    That should give you a good idea of how to get your dog to stay.
