OK, so I have honour of taking out a GR 3/4 - 1/4 Collie, he's shown himself to be very intelligent and giving great attention. Only funny thing was, when he swims for a stick, he's waiting too far out in water, so I can't throw it again. Being in the water and having the stick is very rewarding obviously. His normal fetch is pretty good, he mostly runs by and drops on command, but sometimes offers an auto-retrieve with beautiful sit and drop at my feet. If my BC's get sticky in water, thanks to hot weather, at least I can reach the stick, or call them out with not much effort. The Goldie was just seemingly expecting me to join him however! Any suggestions? Or may be any other Breed Specific tips for interest. I do know about the incredible GR tide marks and planned my walk accordingly with mud before the beach, and making sure the route back was fun and non-boring for him to keep him from wallows.
