Hi. i have a 9mth old border collie who is becoming a bit difficult. I have a fairly large back yard which he shares with our other dog. When we first got him from a pound as a puppy we walked him every day, took him to puppy training and introduced him with as many people and surroundings as possible.
After about 2mths of this he was still not used to cars and would go crazy when they would drive by. At the start he was ok to walk, not exatally used to cars or some noises, but now he is virtually impossible to walk as he pulls extremely hard to get ahead of me or whoever is walking him and only has his back legs on the ground.
He goes crazy barking at any other dog that walks past and is uneasy when people walk past and sometimes barks at them. He jumps and spins around when cars go by as well, and when we try to stop him sometimes he gets a bit vicious.
Lately he has been starting to try and bite us. I have read that lack of exercise can make dogs get aggressive like this, and due to the fact we cannot walk him like this he isn't getting as much exercise as i would like him too.
We have spoken to a couple of farms that have said they would love to have him so as much as i hate to say it, if these behaviors aren't stopped or reduced he will have to be re-homed to one of them.
any help on how to deal with these behaviors or if any one has any experience with this and has any methods that worked for them it would be greatly appreciated if you could help. Thanks
