Question by Lollipop: Dog obedience training, any ideas how much it is?
i’m looking into having my dog trained in obedience. he’s an extremely intelligent border collie, 2 years old, but he’s like a stroppy teenager, if i tell him off for stealing a baby toy that he knows he’s not allowed to have then he’ll throw himself to the floor like he’s going to sleep!! he features days where he decides he’s not in the mood to listen to me so will do something naughty, if i tell him no, (i almost never shout at him and never smack him) he’ll do it again as soon as my back is turned.
so you can probably tell, he doesn’t need all the training like sit, stay, come here and all that, just needs to learn off-limits areas and off-limits things. i’d like to think one day i can come home and find he hasn’t ‘pinched’ anything.
so does anyone have any experience in having a dog trained? stories? and how much is it roughly?
ps, i did check with other collie owners, he’s getting enough exercise

Go to barns and noble or books a million and purchase the book dog training for dummies. You will learn a lot and save money by training the dog yourself.
