SO many super cute Border Collies! Yay for puppies all around.

Except for people like me who don't get any more puppies for years and years, and will have to live vicariously through all the Chaz puppy pictures, of which there will be MANY, right?!?

Maybe not as awesome as your pics, but yes, I will vow to do my part.

My puppy progress so far:

She is learning her name pretty reliably now. Still conditioning how she responds to her name but at least she's not oblivious like she was.

She is starting to learn how to fetch, not reliably but it's a start. Mostly just chasing toys and bringing them back to me because she wants to be near me while playing.

She plays tug, but doesn't quite know the rules of the game yet. She is learning though.

I've started luring her to a sit and down, but they are not on cue yet. She hasn't started on a clicker yet if for no other reason than I want to teach her mouth control and lures work well for that IME.

She is getting better at picking her chewing targets. She chews the nylabone reliably when she wants something hard (vs my toe... or the desk... or the chair...) and uses her rope toy or de-stuffed animals when she wants something soft. She still makes mistakes like, say, attempting to chew my surface pro 2 tablet while i was using it to type this post lol.

I haven't done much leash training yet, she is still building her confidence in her new home, I am going to nurture that for a while before exposing her to the outside world. She handles surprises very well, but does seem to be the kind of dog who wants to observe the world and understand what is going on before she takes part in it.

Just a few more days for me...!

Sounds like she's doing great!

You know you can use a clicker/marker with lure training, right? I was a little confused by that part.
