  1. Hi! My name is Niyole Kuzee and I am on the board for the USBCHA National Cattle dog committee. We are working to put on the National Finals this fall October 11-14 in Marshfield Mo. There will be 50 open dogs and 37 nursery dogs competing for the National Championship. It’s a long four days of hard competition and a lot of fun promoting this amazing breed. The border collies have to be qualified through out the year in order to be a part of this exciting event. The USBCHA has a sponsorship program to help raise money to assist with these trials. We are looking for anyone who might want to sponsor a handler/dog team. The sponsor of the winning team both in the nursery and open has a chance to win double their money back as well as have an add in the program, their name announced as their team is running and be part of promoting the working border collie. Each sponsorship costs $125. The sponsorship form can be found by going to the USBCHA website, clicking on the Cattledog tab, and then going to the finals website. You can also contact me via email at [email protected] I would be very glad to help. dogsponsor.pdf
  2. So an update and another question for the masses this morning!: I realized that my dog had not fully grasped the concept of me telling her to watch her sheep and I had not understood the importance of her knowing it, so we went all the way back to zero and I just walked around telling her to watch her sheep and walked away from her and them ( in a safe way) I did this enough times that when we would walk up to the fence she was already looking for them. After doing this I noticed a huge increase in her speed and when I would release her to watch her sheep I would name flanks as she took them just by redirecting her with my body, and this seemed to work.. My conclusion is that while she is sensitive to pressure I had made a training error and let it go unnoticed for too long, my question is how would one go about pushing a more sensitive dog off stock? I love posting the day before training, I get such wonderful feed back from y'all!
