Default How to train a Border Collie, in 3 easy steps!

First, you must identify the problem.

In this case, Sylphrena had two problems. The first being, she would not fetch. The second being, she was mildly reactive when dogs got right in her face.

Fortunately, I have discovered the solution to both issues! Hands-free training, no cruel punishment needed! No cruelly forcing the dogs to learn with a clicker! No spoiling them with food! Heck, you don't even have to be in the same house as them!

So how did I overcome the fetch issue?

I whined about it a lot. And got perfectly helpful advice.

That's it! No further work necessary! I didn't even have to use the great advice.

And for the reactivity. I was very concerned about this and how to deal with it. This was a much harder issue to tackle. I grumbled about it a little, to no avail. Then I grumbled more. Then I whined a whole lot to anyone that would listen.

Then I got great advice! I was so glad, and worked out a plan to implement said great advice.

The next day, she played like a champ, with all dogs, and no reactivity whatsoever. I didn't even have to use the advice I was given! Just like the fetch issue, it went away by magic!

And that's the secret. Just whine. A lot. To everyone. It magically fixes problems. Syl is proof that this works.

I am starting to suspect Syl hacks into my FB, Chaz, and computer in order to learn. /panic
