Karen and Border Collie Kage

We have a Border Collie mix, which Don started teaching when he was 4 months old. At the beginning, he did not want to listen to our commands or follow us. However, after much work and persistence, Don showed us how to be a good pack leader, and more importantly how to maintain a good, healthy relationship with our dog. Now, Kage just completed the intermediate course, our dog is very disciplined. He knows to stay by our side unless we tell him not to, he knows to sit next to us when we stop, he knows how to play fetch, and now he can also go off leash.
