Hi, I should really follow up my posts with a response… I can’t believe I haven’t been here since January and don’t even know if you guys will remember me at all, let alone my problems haha! Claire, thank you for your advice, I know this was aaages ago… I should’ve made it clearer that the collie is my dog!
We have worked hard on this – we worked on keeping by my feet. Also, I taught him to actually ‘get Floyd’, i.e. put a cue to his favourite game… It’s definitely not perfect (still some mad moments) but walks are a bit more controlled than they were, and the neck-nipping is no longer a problem at all 🙂
