Dog training in Taipei

Dog training in Taipei

Postby bph » 27 Aug 2015, 12:40

I'm looking for (Any) dog training classes/schools for me and my Border Collie. He's a great dog and he gets a lot of exercise everyday. He gets really excited whenever I try to teach him something new or when he sees other dogs (Very friendly though), so I need some advice!

Contact Stray Dog, the poster, or go to the Sanctuary on Facebook. Sean McCormack is your guy.

“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

You will be hard pressed to exercise a border collie to calmness. They will get fitter faster than you.

If he gets excited when you teach him new stuff, its possible you have been rewarding him at the wrong moment. Or the reward is in itself too good and causes the excitement.

It's best to find ways to mentally tire him out, not just physically.

Thanks for your replies! Mucha Man, I'll get in contact with them!

Riggers, I noticed that you can't (EVER) exercise him to a calm state of mind..... Do you know anyone who can help me train (the dog and myself)?

Saw a TV report about a guy in Taoyuan, where they also have a pet hotel with an obstacle course in an outside open area. Problem is they did not give detailed data. Can someone help?

They do have a year competition for pets, sort of course championships, that would be cool with a border collie.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
