Welcome to The Real Time Canine

My name is Amelia Smith of BorderSmith Kennel and with The Real Time Canine, I am providing training technique for Border Collie Sheepdogs. Beginning with 10 week old Kensmuir Star, I will document his daily lessons in words and pictures every Sunday. Previously subscription based, the complete working journal is now available here every Sunday.

From the moment I collected Star, his training began and you will be with us every step of the way. Good manners, willingness & confidence are necessary for him to attain my goal to become a useful working sheepdog and successful trial competitor. From the first lessons on manners & socialization to his first exposure to sheep, you will be a part of Star's journey to success.

After a lifetime with animals, dogs, horses and livestock, I am happy to share my expertise with you. I have found success in sheepdog trials at home and abroad and have trained dogs that went on to find success with others. To learn more about me and my dogs, please visit my BorderSmith website and my BorderSmith Blog! Cheers and thank you very much.

Week 6

Star is still finding his place in the pack of dogs here at BorderSmith Kennels. He's young enough that the others tolerate him for the most part, but Star wants more and is angling for higher status. He has a few bumps on his nose that attest to his efforts. Time and Star's inner resolve will determine where he lands in the pecking order.

This week's lessons

  1. Weather permitting
  2. Leaving Alley
  3. Pushing boundaries

My most recent review of The Real Time Canine comes from Michelle, a subscriber who says; "I am really enjoying the Star Chronicles." Thank you very much, Michelle. I am enjoying it as well.
