Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm glad to have found this site. Last year I adopted a 6 month old Border Collie mix, Brody. He is now 60 pounds and 25 inches at the shoulder. I love to teach him tricks and train animals in any way, shape, or form (Positive methods only, of course!) It's always been my dream to be a professional dog trainer, and hopefully I'll be on my way in about 10 years or so. Brody is my first dog and I love him to bits, all though I sometimes regret not buying an 8-week old pure Border Collie puppy. (I did have the opportunity!) He currently knows basic obedience, some tricks and I'm building an Agility course to teach him that. He is, however, very shy, but someday will overcome his fears and learn to trust me without thinking twice.
