Training Border Collies by Barbara Sykes Available now from Mainline Border Collie Centre

Border Collies respond to communication and company, which they can never get enough of, and they love the challenge of a game that makes them think, but over-stimulation of mind and body can lead to behavioural problems, particularly if the dog is then left to try to wind down on his own.

The introductory chapters introduce the variations in appearance in the breed and how the genes which produce different build, coat and eye colour also produce different characters and temperament. The key to training each dog being in understanding his ancestral background.

Colour photographs throughout the book show how natural body language makes training much easier for a dog to understand and to respond to, case histories are included with chapters on lead walking, basic training, problem solving, recall, keeping a dog's mind stimulated without winding him up.

On general sale from February 2015 and available now from Mainline.
Price: 16.99 + 1.80 p&p (please contact us for overseas postage)
