Hi there, First time poster and dog owner. My BC pup, who's 6 months old has pretty strong recall skills and fairly reliable in the park. However, as of late, she's been really bad for finding things that she shouldn't, food, for example and once she becomes fixated on that, she just does not listen to me. Tonight, she managed to find an old cup on the grass with leftover food in it, and that was it. I called her, whistled her, tried luring with treats, squeeked a kong air ball in my pocket to grab her attention and the usual recall methods and I got zero response. Once she had it in her mouth, she would run a suitable distance away with it to eat/lick the remaining food, and bolt whenever I got close to her. She basically turned it into a game. Eventually, after about 10 minutes I managed to get my foot on top of it when she accidentally dropped it, and then I spent a further 10 minutes trying to get her to come close enough for her to go back on the leash. I understand that she's still very young, but I'm worried that this behaviour continues into adulthood. This is frustrating because usually I call her and she comes straight over. I'm just relieved that there were no other dogs or distractions about otherwise it might have taken me longer to retrieve her. She always manages to dodge me because she knows she's getting put back on the leash. I'm trying to research as much as possible in regards to the border collie, but I can't seem to find much on this. Is this something she will grow out of? What's the best approach to get her to respond to me when she's acting like this? Should I just keep her on the leash more? Thanks in advance.
