A couple of days ago we got a 1 year old, border collie (blue merle) from the local rescue centre called Gizzy! I will be uploading pics soon...
He has been pretty good in most ways although he does need obediance classes and dog agility training to stem some of the excess puppy energy... I am pretty good at the basic training myself; however, I have come across something that I just do not know how to solve!! Details below:
Now that he has settled in he has become more territorial about his home -- reacting to the postman etc. However, he has also not yet worked out that reflections in the window during the night are actually him! He therefore has 'freaked out' a few times at his reflection --- standing, growling and barking for long periods of time. Has anyone got any possibly long-term solutions to make him realise that it is in fact him? I would draw the curtains but we have a conservatory with no curtains!
