Hi there ..I'm new to forums but I thought I'd join to hopefully get some help and info. We recently 4 weeks ago got a beautiful border collie pup she's 12 weeks old now ..we lost our cocker spaniel last year after 12 1/2 Years he was a lovely boy and we thought long and hard to get another dog but if you're a doggy you're a doggy. We thought border collie as I love walking and know they love it too ..now we have our Einstein ponche I want to know I'm doing the right things..she can sit ...lay down ..stay for a few steps away from me ..walking on lead a little. She loves learning but I don't know if I'm expecting too much I need to know how much I should do with her at this age ? And also how to stop separation anxiety as she cries at the back door or if she's in her crate for a few minutes..also nipping I've heard of herding ? I love my little bundle of joy and am looking forward to growing up with her to when we are out in the woods . How hard will the next month's be ??
