I met Jack, the Border Collie, when he was a young lad. After completing my advanced class, Jack passed his Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Internaional tests before he was a year old. Fast forward another year. Jack had been working on his agility skills. Because of the nature of this wild child, his absolute joy for the game of agility had a negative impact on some of his obedience skills. He and his mom are training with me once again to polish Jack's recalls, his on-leash skills, etc. Fortunatley, Jack has a very determined human. She is consistent, patient, and maintains a sense of humor at all times (a must when dealing with this amazing breed).
