and by properly, we are talking won't release unless the release command is given, etc.
I was at my cousins house over the weekend. Her and her GF have 2 border collies and a mutt, dear god these dogs are amazing.
other than the fact that the one border collie has about a 5' vertical and athleticism beyond belief, they are ALL amazingly well trained.
you can have a toy in your hand, tell them 'sit' 'settle' or 'stay' and they won't release until you say 'okay' even if you toss the frisbee.
They also will 'bring it to me' and bring the toy to you.
'thank you' makes them release the toy.
It's so freaking amazing. I realllly want a dog but know i can't take the proper time with it. At least I know that when i do get a dog, ill have my cousin train it
both in those photos are rescues, all of her dogs have been.
the black one is the more athletic one but also younger.
also the black one, at 4 months old supposedly not only moved a herd of sheep, but moved them in two directions.
its INSANE watching that dog jump 5' high to catch a frisbee (never misses)
