Hi everyone! We are first time dog owners and picked up our gorgeous 20month old Bordie collie cross Newfoundland, Bruno, from the border collie rescue Centre a few days ago. Considering the upheaval he has been brilliant. House trained, listens to basic commands and sleeps well at night. However, there are 3 main things that we know we need to work on with him. 1. He chases shadows at night or sunlight coming through the windows or doors during the day. We think this may have been something he was doing at the rescue Centre and we are trying different things to break the habit. 2. He pulls on the lead while out walking, he’s curious about everything and gets easily distracted. Although, we have started training him to heel which has made a slight improvement. 3. He lunges at other dogs while out walking. We don’t think he’s doing it to be aggressive as he doesn’t normaly bark or growl, it only happens when they get close. We think it’s because he wants to say hello but with him being quite big and strong he can be quite intimidating. We do warn other dog walkers when they get close but not everyone is pleasant about it. Any suggestions to help with our big friendly giant would be much appreciated!!
