Enjoy moments together

Share moments with your dog mate

 

The dog: man’s most faithful companion, caregiver, sometimes rescuer. It was Winston Churchill himself to write about dogs being man’s best friends. His words have become the perfect illustration of the unique relationship between humans and their four-legged companions. Whatever the weather’s like, whatever the season, the feeling or the world news, the dog will always love its owner. Just like that – this animal is capable of showing more emotion than a lot of people can. A race that has gained popularity and is often chosen by people living an active life is Border Collie. You could not dream of a more faithful companion. These dogs love moving, playing, and are extraordinarily caring. How can you spend time with them?

Border Collie – an intelligent breed of dogs for active people

Border Collie belongs to pastoral dogs, specifically herding dogs. It’s important because this group of animals exhibit high inborn intelligence, they love showing initiative, and action gives them a lot of joy, which they share with humans. These dogs are easy to train and quick to grasp the tasks they are taught to do. Border Collies love… working. They enjoy movement and performing their tasks; that’s why they are the perfect choice for sheep herding. However, this is only a tiny part of their extensive abilities. Border Collie dogs save lives. They become assistance dogs, or animals that help in therapy. They are great at trailing. Border Collies are tender and full of energy. All your family will love this dog, reciprocally of course. The dog will become a true friend for spending time together. Every moment with your canine friend is an opportunity for building a true emotional bond.

Playing with your dog at home – it’s simple!

Autumn and winter are those seasons when we prefer having a rest at our warm homes. We are reluctant to spend time in the open, yet our dog needs as much time playing as he always gets! He does not really care about the weather outside. Still, what you need is just some creativity and good intentions to give your canine friend a great time at home. Here are some verified proposals you can use in your home:

  • Find it! – let your dog show his worth to you. Hide some toys or kibbles from him, having first shown him where and what you are trying to ‘hide’. You can raise the difficulty level later, e.g. through hiding the surprises always in the same room but in different spots. The dog will be extremely joyful after finding the treat!
  • Pick up your treat – this is a true smartness test for Border Collie. Hide a treat in a box, or in an empty bottle. Let the canine use his intelligence to try and take out the reward! Good quality kibbles will be great for this purpose.
  • Obedience – an attractive and great entertainment, which is also a sport. Make your dog respond to various commands, such as ‘Sit!’ or ‘Down!’. He will learn through play, and his favourite dog treats will be a great reward.
  • Three cups – this kind of entertainment is familiar to people, and works great with dogs as well. Put three empty cups upside down on a table, and hide a treat under one of them. Let the dog watch you do so and mix the cups afterwards. Will he be able to discover the location of the treat, e.g. his favourite food, under the right cup? If he can find it, let him have it!

Canine sports – enjoy moments together

Border Collies definitely enjoy being active. Therefore, canine sports give them a lot of fun and at the same time keep them fit. Here are some exercises you can try in autumn and winter:

  • Agility – a real obstacle course for a dog. The dog, led by your voice and commands, will have to cover such obstacles as car tyres, bridges, swings or palisades. Long jump is an indispensable exercise, too!
  • Dog sledding – an interesting proposal, not only for the inhabitants of Greenland. If only you get the opportunity, try the skikjoring – racing of skiers pulled by dog sleds. Border Collies simply love this kind of entertainment!

There are numerous ideas for playing with your Border Collie. Make the time you spend with him as long as possible, whether at home or outdoor. The more time you devote to your canine friend, the more you will both enjoy it! Don’t forget the healthy and reasonable feeding of your four-legged companion. The right choice of dog food is a must. Engage in taking care about him as you do about yourself.
