  • 9 week old BC

    We have had our BC for 1 week and already we realise she is going to be a challenge for both of us. My husband is walking her early morning about 1.3 kms and then when he gets her home she is hyper and runs around chews everything in sight, bites our trousers and hands, table cloth anything she can. After about 2 hours she starts to settle down and has a sleep. This is repeated again at night. We took her to puppy class last week and we are going again tonight. Our concern is are we revving her up by walking her so far. Please help

    Kikopup has a lot of great videos on everything to do with pups ! Have a good look around this link and you will find things to teach your pup to use her brain.

    Pups that use their brains tire more quickly that just exercise alone.

      Border collies are a handful and well get worse unless you really get in to some training with her. People usually dump them around 8-12 months because they didn't realise the commitment that you need for these working dogs. I have Border collies and I do agility and work sheep with them and do a lot of training with them when they are young. They are great dogs you just have to put the time into them. Mine are all crate trained and that is really helpful with a pup. Yes you are walking her too far for such a small pup while her joints and bones are reaching some critical points in their development. Short walks and plenty of play and training.

        Thank you both for your quick replies, we had already discussed the fact that we are possibly walking her too much. RileyJ I have bookmarked the link you sent and shall have a good look around it tonight. Kalacreek short walks from now on and we are looking into agility etc for her later on. Once again many thanks

          Good to see that you are doing 'Puppy Kindy'. Next stage is then obedience training at a 'Dog School'.

          Once this little one is ~ 18 months old - then you can look at agility.

          You need to get the obedience to a reasonably high level before you do agility + her growth plates must be closed.

            You might want to try Susan Garrett's H360 course - loads of foundation for good dog behaviour and then for agility eventually.
            This year they're adding the puppy videos for Susan's latest puppy Momentum.

            And rego has been extended until Midnight Thursday New York time. Cost is about a grand USA money. Which works out to $20 per week.

            http://my.handling360.com/h360-registration-open/

            The more training of tricks - tricks of good behaviour ie learning to leave your stuff alone, learning to chill out, learning loads of cute tricks - all that wears a puppy brain out more than long walks. So cut back on the walk time by ten minutes and spend it training in two five minute (or less) sessions.

            Trick training wears the dog out. Long walks make for super fit destructo dog - it's your choice.
