    Thanks yes there are a number of classic Border Collie poses. Another is front on with his head slightly bowed with one paw lifted off the ground ready to pounce. I also have a few of him jumping stiles when we go hiking but might try him on agility which would allow us lots more classic photos like pole weaving.

    Yes they do need to work and ideally something that is working alongside you. Archie loves hide and seek where either my partner or I hide and he has to find us. He's improving. How long did it take for your dog to learn the commands like away and comebye?

    Hi... Oscar was a rescue so the first year was just recovery. The I just used the commands combined with hand signals whenever we played so he just picked it up. He also knew signs for sit stay down up and left or right ...again just picked up during play.. with a lift of my head he knew to go fetch too. Truely remarkable dogs.
