To quote his foster mom, BANJO is JOYOUS! He is a fun loving & very active Border collie just over one year of age and about 44 lbs. He has a beautiful smooth tri-color coat. BANJO will run and play the day away but does settle nicely when inside, often found on a dog bed or in his crate, door opened. He and IGGY (also available) love chasing each other all over the yard. Be it agility, Treibball, hiking, or something else he will need a lot of exercise and activity. He makes great eye contact and is always checking back for validation.
BANJO is crate trained and sleeps quietly all night. When exiting his crate use the stay command and he will wait until his “OK” release to exit slowly. He is quite the quick learner. He also knows down, kennel (or crate) as well as sit, and his recall (come) is good. BANJO is doing better with his house training but has the occasional accident. Excitement (visitors) seems to be a trigger, so we try to have him in his crate or we let him outside shortly after friends arrive and this has helped him. BANJO is also struggling with off as he does counter surf and likes to jump up on people. He also is quite fast and reckless when playing outside so for these reasons we’d guard against having him around small children. BANJO is also good on a leash and travels well in a crate.
BANJO would do best in an active family home where he will be included in all the hustle and bustle. Experience with active herding dogs would be a plus. When the family cannot be out with him he would do well to have a canine partner that can match his activity level. Even when he goes out with the other dogs he waits patiently on the back porch until his foster dad comes out too. Cats and small livestock are a maybe. He is interested in the cat but not as intense as some we have seen. BANJO does not seem to have interest in toys. He will chase a ball but once it stops he peels off, no longer interested. Please check out his videos and if you are interested get your application / inquiry into us. The boy is ready!
