    Meet Chloe! She is a 6 year old BC, and a big sweetheart!
    Favorite things to do- Herding sheep, catching a frisbee, hunting chipmunks, and sitting on my lap! :)
    Her favorite trick- Go to bed (gets in bed)
    My favorite trick- Over (jumps over my leg)
    Trick we are working on right now- Close the door (pretty self explanatory :) )
    Best Training Technique for Chloe- Training with positive reinforcement and a clicker for about 2 minutes at a time.
    And some pictures of my beautiful girl Chloe! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    What a lovely girl! She looks very serious. Does she have a goofy side, too?

    She knows about 9 tricks, but she is learning fast! She learned most of them in the past month or two. She learned a couple before, but she didnt work well with other training methods, but just a couple of months ago we found the clicker, and now she's learning super fast! She almost has her 10th trick, close the door!

    She is very serious. Nothing is fun and games. Everything is serious business. ;) She does have a goofy side sometimes though, especially when the big ball comes out. :)

    Yup. Her drivers test is next week. ;) Haha! Just kidding.... She wouldn't be a good driver, she'd be driving with her head out the window. :)

    Well, actually, I guess it depends, do agility obstacles count as tricks? For example, does jumping over a bar count as a trick? Or does doing the weave poles count as a trick? Ect.? If so, she knows more than 9.

    I would count them as tricks because she has to learn how to do these things.:)

    Ok, I updated her tricks in my signature. That means she knows 13 tricks. :)

    LOL, somewhere on this forum, probably in the off topic, there's a post from way back about dogs getting Driver's Licenses! Sounds like Chloe needs one, but she'll need to keep her head in, that's for sure!:LOL:

    Wow, not only beautiful but smart too! Impressive list of tricks!(y):)

    She is adorable! Have you had her since she was a puppy, or did you adopt her later?

    We have had her since she was a puppy, but I just became interested in training her a year or two ago, and got really serious about it a couple months ago. Although I would like to rescue my next dog, and kind of wish I would rescued my first dog (although I wouldn't trade Chloe), we got her as a puppy, because my mom had a little seven year old girl (Me!) begging her for a dog, and when your that young, your usually begging for a puppy! :) Now that I am 13 though, I'm begging for a rescue! :)

    Very belated to reading your post here, but just thought I would add me to the list of Chloe admirers, she is beautiful. BCs are just so smart, its great that you found the clicker and positives reinforcement! Well done you and Chloe!

    Chloe says thank you! :) Wow, I'm looking back at this post, and I said Chloe knew 9 tricks. Now, just 8 moths later, she knows almost 35 tricks! So proud of her!

    That is awesome! Power of a positive, loving owner, a clicker and a wonderful dog!(y)
