Border Collie Training at Pupstart Dog Training - Border collies learn extremely quickly.  This is great while they are learning what we want them to learn, but sometimes they start learning the wrong things.  This can lead to behaviours that cause owners big problems .  Knowing what to teach and how, along with ensuring that all the family has the same rules and are consistent, will ensure that your collie is a loving, loved member of the family.

WHY WILL I NEED HELP WITH BORDER COLLIE TRAINING?

 

Border collies are a wonderful breed - intelligent, loving and loyal.  Border collie puppies are so quick to learn that if you aren't sure what or how to teach them the things that you want them to learn, they will start to pick up bad habits very, very quickly. They become little biting monsters, start to chase traffic or run off to find their own fun and ignore all your attempts to recall them. Often known as "workaholics", if you don't give them a job to do, they will find one!
Many people buy collie puppies in the false belief that it will be easy, but on the whole, raising a border collie puppy is exhausting, often demoralising and hard work. BUT, if you know what you need to be training, how to do it, what is normal and what isn't, it all becomes a lot easier. And once they reach about 12 - 18 months old, they are an absolute joy to own, but ONLY if you have successfully navigated them through all the things that can go wrong.

Support with behaviour and training can begin from before you even bring your puppy home so that you have the right equipment available and know what you're doing from day one. You can book a single session to ask for advice or help on a single issue, or book a series of sessions to cover everything that you need to know.
I'm based in Spalding, Lincolnshire, and can teach in-person by travelling to your home if you live close to Spalding or I can teach by video call.
I'm a Certified Training Partner of the Karen Pryor Academy, one of the highest accredited awards for positive animal training, and I'm an ABTC (Animal Training & Behaviour Council) Registered Animal Training Instructor. I have completed the Canine Principles Accredited Canine Coaching Diploma and I am also undertaking an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Lincoln, one of only two MSc courses accredited by the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour.  I'm fully committed to working towards full CCAB (Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist) accreditation.

TRAINING & BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS FOR ANY BREED

Although we specialise in border collies, we're also able to help with any breed, from puppies, through adolescence, to senior dogs .

It's important to get in touch as soon as the problem behaviour starts, otherwise it will become habit.  A habit is a dog's way of dealing with a specific situation and the longer dogs are able to practise their habits, the more difficult it will be, and the longer it will take to retrain them and eliminate the problem behaviour.

We offer one to one training, in person or by video call, in your own home for problem behaviours or general manners training. We also offer day training, where, after an initial consultation, we can come to your home and train your dog for you.  And as certified clicker training specialists, we can teach you how to train your border collie using a clicker. Having this skill opens up an exciting new means of communicating with your dog and enables you to teach them just about anything!

Don't leave it too late - invest in your dog's future today.
