Chill the Collie Challenge

The Border Collie Geek Community & That’ll Do Academy presents our next 5 day challenge!

Impulse controls are important in every part of the dog’s life, for recall, lead walking and leaving things that they shouldn’t have but most of the time are taught negatively.

We are going to teach impulse control in a fun and rewarding way not as a way to stop our dog’s happiness but to give it back once they offer that calm and collected behaviour that we wish they could offer a bit more often.

Chill the Collie is the challenge that is going to teach you essential skills to so that you Border Collie can offer CALM instead of :

Impulse control is the foundation of everything!

This is a foundation game that you can then apply to more complex tasks, pushing your dog’s impulse controls to the limit!

I start these games with my puppies and I build it up with my adult dogs to help me teach more complicated behaviours like:

Recall away from a distraction

Not pulling on the lead

Not chasing a squirrel

Not eating stuff from the floor

Without this basic exercise, all the tasks listed above are not possible. It’s like building a house without a foundation or learning a language without knowing grammar. It doesn’t work!

The challenge is going to be structured to give complete beginners the right start and to push the ones that already know this game to improve their dog impulse control skills.
