Collie Calm: Training for High-Energy Border Collies | 2.5 hour workshop

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

£30.00 – £60.00

This workshop is for Border Collies & Collie Crosses who always want to be on the go:

  • Hyper vigilant at home – listening out for sounds outside
  • Barking at sounds or movement whilst in the garden
  • Over-excited when going out in the car for a walk
  • Lead walking can feel like water-skiing!
  • Daren’t let them off their long-line as into everything, recall non-existent when distracted

These dogs with big personalities can be anything from young dogs to middle-aged adults. They need a bit more training and understanding to help them behave more appropriately in your home and out and about.

During this workshop we’ll be covering..

  • Tips & techniques for managing and training high-energy dogs
  • How to teach a reliable settle behaviour
  • Physical v. mental exercise for a more relaxed collie
  • Becoming the person our collie turns to when you face a distraction

My dog is so easily distracted and doesn’t do well in a group class – can I spectate instead?

You will learn lots of valuable information by both taking part with your dog, or watching as a spectator too.

Where is the workshop held?

The workshop will be held outside in my fenced training field. We will go ahead if light rain/ wind is forecast, but you would be notified of cancellation in the event of very bad weather.

About your instructor

I’ve belonged to 7 amazing collies, bred 15 talented collie puppies over two litters, and fostered 3 troubled collies before finding them their forever homes. 

Not to mention how many collies and their owners I’ve helped throughout my 15 years as a dog trainer. I guess you’d say I’m a bit of a fan of the breed!

Border Collies and their crosses can be amazing dogs. But they can also be really hard work too!

That’s why I help collie owners how to teach their dog brilliant life skills (loose lead walking/ recall/ social skills) so they can enjoy walking anywhere without the worry of them getting into mischief!

Join me for this workshop and I’ll help you achieve this too!
