    Hello,
    This is all new to me, my first time in a chat room. I have a male boarder collie he was 6 months old yesterday. This is the first boarder collie i've had, he is great but some times I'm at my wits end with him when he barks for attention especially when I'm cooking.

    Hi, lots of help and advice on here, i am owned by 5 border collies and a yorkie terrier.
    Barking for attention, ignore, or give him something to do like a frozen stuffed kong will keep him busy.

    Welcome!!!

    Hi! I have a gsd and a labx, love collies though.

    I think the kong idea is a good one, definately ignore though because if you shout at her she will bark louder as it will seem like you are joining in!

    Collies are so 'busy', you could try tiring her out on her walk before you want to get on with your jobs, i know it isn't always practical though.

    Good luck on the forum, hope you enjoy, lots of people on here with lots of helpfull advice. :):D

    A Kong is a dog toy made of rubber, they are hollow in the middle, and can be stuffed with treats for the dog to get out. a lot of people freeze the Kongs with a treat inside

    I have a puppy one of these and give it to Mac - also a twist and treat (search ebay for these) that really keeps him occupied. You can use the kong recipies for these too.

    Another treat he gets are real bones from the butchers once or twice a week - do not feed chicken bones or cooked bones! Our butcher doesn't charge for them. He loves them. Just tell the butcher it's for a dog and don't make them too big as he's only small! Mine tried to give me a huge bit almost the size of the dog! lol!

    He loves ice cubes too and chases them about and dribbles everywhere! lol! He looks like there's something wrong with him when he does it. He's also learned to toss it it the air and then run after it. They are good for his sore gums when he's teething.

    Laura :)
