yes we have tried reassuring her and yes the collar does spray and we tried classes for her but the trainer had so many dogs of all shapes and sizes there that it was of no benefit to Skye. All the dogs had differing problems so it was impossible to concentrate on one particular animal.
Thank you for your advice which we will follow up. However we are against using a shock collar. This is our own personal preference and does not reflect on the usefulness of them. The other things you asked us to try, we will. As for the spray collar it did get up her nose and I don't know how she did it but being crafty ( as Border Collies are ) she lay on her side and shuffled until the collar was halfway up the side of her head! We dare not have it any tighter so put that down to another failed attempt. However we will try your suggestions and see how we go. Thank you very much.
