    Hello everyone
    I am the proud new owner of a 4 month old white faced border collie ,we already have a lovely 14 year old collie ,had the puppy now for 2 months but am slightly concerned at him barking outdoors at anyone passing by ,when they go to pat him although his tail is wagging happily im worried coz he is backing away very nervously

    Any ideas on what i can do would be greatfully appriciated :)

    kian

    hi and welcome.
    when your out and about with the pup i take it you carry treats get people to offer the pup some that will help him get used to people, dont fuss him if he backs away your make it worse just take no notice and take the pup to puppy classes as well that will also help.
