Thanks so much for replying!! Besides my neighbour I know only one other person who owns a pure BC and I don't know them very well. I have been dying to talk to someone.
How old is your BC? My next question is this - if Murphy does not have his recall command down (He will still ignore me if something else, like another dog, is more interesting) is it okay to keep him on a length of rope instead of off leash? I have avoided the dog park here because it is not fenced all the way around. We also have a new friend through puppy class and have talked about getting together with the puppies, are there some guidelines I should remember when we do this? I have searched many web sites but most of them talk about BCs as dogs not puppies.
You said if I had any questions just let you know, I hope this isn't too much!!
