You are not the only one, many many time I have new students coming to me with a dog that won’t take food on walks. I also have some students that ask me why using food? Is the dog not learning just because there is food around?

In this episode I explain why I use food, why I think it’s an important part of the training process and also how to make food more fun for Border Collies that are too busy to watch the world go by then to take your treat!

Enjoy this new episode, I hope the background noise wasn’t too much!

Martina Miradoli Border Coolie Expert Dog trainer

Hello, my name is Martina Miradoli and I specialise in training Border Collies.

I’ve owned Border Collies for many years and have trained them, along with other herding breeds in every sport and activity available.

This has allowed me to gain invaluable experience and an understanding of these unique dogs and the behavioural challenges that we may have to face as owners.
