Border Collie Australian Shepherd Mix Puppy
Kash, A Border Collie/Australian Shepherd Mix Puppy
Kash the Dog
We received Kash from a super Border Collie Rescue Organization on January 15th, 2011. Kash was the runt of the litter. He had 2 brothers and a sister. Kash was the most friendly and receiving of the four pups when we went to visit them.
Initially we wanted a female. Kash just gave us those puppy dog eyes and melted our heart. My wife and I decided right then that his name would be Kash. We originally had "Gootch" as our first choice of names, but this pup looked like a "Kash".
We immediately started to get the puppy used to doing his business in one area of the yard. This puppy training was going to be intensive. We started "clicker training" immediately. Lo and behold it worked. The little pup never had a single accident in the house for the 1st eight days!
We will try to keep this page updated with our ventures in dog training. Like how to keep the dog from jumping on people, how to keep the puppy from biting, and how to get dog to stop itching. There will be many episodes.
I also hope to review all the products we use on Kash for his best health and safety. Also, we plan to tell you about healthy dog food, healthy dog food recipes, and what dog food we are feeding Kash for the best health.
So stay tuned for the further adventures of Kash the Dog.

Five Commands To Teach You Dog
Five Commands To Teach Your Dog
- The Sit Command: The sit command is probably the first command most people teach their dog. It is probably a good idea to teach the stay command right along with the sit command. You will benefit greatly once your dog know and performs this command. Wherever you are, even in the presence of other dog, people, or even cats, you should be able to use the sit command with confidence.
- The Stay Command: This command is a good one to teach right along with the sit command. They can work well together and it is the most commonly used double command. This can keep your dog out of harm’s way, protecting your dog from getting hit, or chomping a baby rabbit.
- The Come Command: This “come here” command is probably the most important command your dog needs to master. When your dog masters the come command, it will give you confidence and a solid foundation for other dog training commands. The come command is can save your dog’s life, so make sure your pet gets this one down pat.
- The Heel Command: This important command will give you confidence and peace of mind when you have your dog on a leash or without a leash, in public. The heel command will teach your dog to walk close by your side. If you have concerns about him running away or having to be chased, then make sure your dog gets this training. This command can be taught with your dog either on or off his leash.
5. The “Off” or Down Command: Dogs that jump when they are excited tend to annoy and/or scare people, especially children and older folks. This needs to be nipped in the bud right away. It is best to teach this immediately to a puppy. Please do teach your dog not to jump on people, it can only lead to bigger issues when a dog jumps and possibly knocks someone down.
The best training I have found, and use when training Kash is Secrets to Dog Training. I highly recommend it to anyone with a puppy, or any dog that needs training. This is an easy to use, easy to implement, and very effective in a short amount of time.
