HC Double R Liliana HSAsd HXAsd
Double R Brodie
Lili and Brodie continue their training in Fort Myers, Florida. They are training twice a week at Cathie Rogalski’s sheep farm (check her out of Face Book).
Both pups are advancing their skill set.
Lili continues practicing blind fetches, driving, improving her outrun and cross drive. She is slow and methodical keeping a nice pace behind the sheep on the drive.
Brodie has now learned to lay down off balance, and is doing short flanks. His outrun has always been spectacular hugging the fence line and head checking his flock. He is a speedy devil but that is typical for a young dog. He does not like to quit! The words ‘that will do’ are something he does not like.
Lili has earned in her AKC Herding Championship title A Course Sheep and Ducks. This pup has natural herding instinct brought out by Karen Malloy, Shepherds’ Inn Bed and Biscuit -PA. Lili competes at the Championship level in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida. We are looking forward to competing in Nova Scotia soon.
Welcome to Double “R” Border Collies!
Are you interested in a Double “R” Dog? Here are some things you should know.
Border Collies are a highly intelligent and talented breed. It is important that you have the knowledge to provide for your new dog’s needs. Border collies are a working dog that originated in the borderlands of Scotland and England, hence the name. They are bred to have the stamina and strength to spend the entire day working with the shepherd in the mountains in the adverse weather that is typical to the region. Today, border collies excel at many activities including herding, agility, flyball, search & rescue, tracking, tricks and obedience, frisbee and much more. They are considered a high energy breed and require a minimum of 1 hour of intense exercise per day. If your dog is adequately exercised they will be happy to relax with you when you aren’t out and about, but if they are not exercised properly they will make up their own entertainment. They thrive on being mentally simulated and welcome challenges that involve problem solving. Learning new things is a joy for border collies. There are individuals that have been known to recognize and understand over 1000 words and commands.
If you believe that a border collie is right for you then feel free to explore the rest of this website, visit the puppy page and contact Roy to arrange a visit to the farm.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
