About this deal

You must have seen in agility people have a large number of collies but only a few actually complete due to age injuries or temperament.

They don’t actually know what you are trying to tell them mind you so they will eventually do it again.

A coupe are also very sensitive themselves so loud noises bangs whistles etc just traumatise them and they need to be treated with care and patience. At first I tried it with Gus on the leash, but that almost caused a few accidents as he would want to herd me. Hip dysplasia: This condition occurs when the ball and socket of the hip joint rub and grind against each other instead of sliding smoothly.YES there are still annoying people who you want to throw the contents of your dogs poo bag at – but lets not let it effect our day and our mindset.
