Great team there!

Very good video and such a cute dog! I must ask though, do you herd with her or do you work with other stuff instead like obedience and tricks etc?


NanaBorderCollie September 6, 2010 at 12:35 pm

@Nindore I do not do herding with Nana; we instead do trick training, agility, canine freestyle, obedience, disc dog, and sledding. All of our training is done with the use of the clicker and positive reinforcement. ๐Ÿ™‚

I can get “Sarah My Border Collie ” (see video) to walk across a pipe but she won’t come when I call her. She runs out the front gate when she thinks I’m not paying attention. Please, please help. Don D.


NanaBorderCollie September 15, 2010 at 10:34 am

@DonDurkee Be sure Sarah always experiences positive interactions with you – play tug with her and/or frisbee, and give her lots of praise and treats. This helps create a strong bond between you and her, and once you and Sarah have a very strong bond, her recall will become much better. Reward her every time she voluntarily comes to you as well.
By the way, the video of Sarah walking across the pipe is very impressive! ๐Ÿ™‚

That was some pretty cool tricks NANA.

You have a great training method (positive re-enforcement is always the way to go)

How old is NANA?

peaches1227 November 7, 2010 at 12:43 pm

pLZ answer thiss… my dog is a border collie terrier and idk if i he can ever do these tricks cause most videos on “amzaing tricks by border collies” are mostly gir border collies and also does the fact that hes not full border collie make him no as smart and that he cant learn these trickss? please get backk


NanaBorderCollie November 7, 2010 at 8:13 pm

@peaches1227 With clicker training and positive reinforcement, any dog can learn the behaviours shown in this video, no matter the breed. ๐Ÿ™‚


peaches1227 November 10, 2010 at 4:13 pm
