The Best Shepherd Dog

Are border collies good at herding sheep?

Definitely Yes, Border Collie is at the top of the list of the most intelligent dog breeds and is said to be a dog capable of controlling cattle only with the eyes , as if hypnotizing the animals and that is absolutely focused on the activities proposed, since the Border Collie is a dog that can be easily trained and taught to obey all kinds of commands .

Unlike the other dogs, this breed did not demonstrate its ability to bark and snarl at the herd, it just stood in front of them and looked at them in a threatening way, without resorting to violence.

Border Collies instinctive abilities have been adapted to various activities, in addition to herding and working on the farm. A very well known are the tests of shepherd dogs. Although they are not exclusive to the Border Collies, they seem to be dominated by this race.

Tests of shepherd dogs first began in 1873, as a way to show the hard-won skills of the farmer’s specimen and to prove that one’s dog was better than another’s. Today, the goal promoted by the International Sheep Dog Society is to improve the breed by encouraging competition. The tests are based on the work of the farm or, more correctly, on the type of work performed by a sheepdog from a farm in the hills.

They basically test the skills of the surrounding, picking up, driving, putting in a pen and carrying. The presenter sends your dog at a distance of 180 to 360 meters to pick up a small number of sheep, usually four or five. The dog must run well so as not to send the sheep back to the pens.

The dog must then bring the sheep through a fence, make them go around the presenter, take them and pass them through another fence, spin them and drive them through the circuit, pass them through a third group of fences and then drive them over. After this, the dog must remove the sheep from the fold and then out of the circuit.

Obedience tests and agility are also two areas in which the Border Collie stands out. Competitions of both types are dominated by race. These tests reveal the instinctive obedience and the innate agility of the Border Collie. If you have occasionally observed any of these tests, you have not been able to avoid realizing that the Border Collies are present in large numbers and always end up doing well.

Border Collie is a robust and very healthy dog, practically free from hereditary problems, although it is common in males that suffer from osteochondrosis and abnormalities in the cartilage.

The relationship between these exercises and the real work for which the Border Collie was thought is marginal, but they offer an escape valve for the energy of the pet dog and also set objectives for training both the dog and the owner.

As we have said repeatedly, the Border Collie is, by definition, a working dog, but this is not exclusive. His intelligence provides him with the quality of adaptability that, with the right owner, can make the life of the pet dog almost as satisfying to him as the type of work for which he was born and raised.

 

Why Go Camping?

Once considered the cheapest way to get a holiday, camping has become a choice for outdoor enthusiasts, who enjoy a great deal of freedom while staying in their own homes.

Although the tent, as well as the trailer tent, has lost ground to the larger recreational vehicles, it remains the most popular equipment, says Wildlife Communications, at the society of camping).

Demand for land offering services (water, sewer, electricity) is also rising.

Ready-to-camp and family attractions

Two trends are increasingly taking shape in the campground landscape: family attractions and ready-to-camp.
These tents made of canvas and wood, are of more cylindrical shape, trailers for rent, prospecting tents and other accommodation solutions ready to receive campers, allow holidaymakers to learn comfortably the joys of camping, without having to equip themselves with full-on tactical gear – www.tacticalgearguides.com/.

And with the “explosion of family-type campgrounds that put the package on infrastructure” that is noted, young people do not get bored, parents rejoice and seasonal grandparents campers are pleased to say, have the visit.

Stay connected while outdoors

The wi-fi, to stay connected even on vacation, becomes another fourth service to offer after water, electricity, and sewer. Eco-responsible initiatives, such as the addition of recycling bins and water flow management, are also among the concerns of campers who wish to continue on vacation, their good habits taken at home, explains experts.

Camping in Canada in a few figures:

According to the most recent survey on the practice of camping in Canada, carried out by the Chair of tourism.

25% of Canadians have gone camping at least once in their lives.

65% of Canadian campers are between the ages of 30 and 54.

42% of campers earn an annual income of $50,000 or more.

80% of campers travel and 20% choose a campground for the season (seasonal).

43% of campers (non-seasonal) book less than 2 weeks in advance.

Among the traveling campers, 48% do so in the tent and close to 30% in a recreational vehicle.

The rest, the attraction of nature and the social aspect are the main reasons for the followers, to choose the campsite.

The realization of a campfire, walking, and hiking as well as swimming in bodies of water is the main activities carried out in camping.

What Parts Do You Need To Install A Sink?

Installing a new sink is never easy. Luckily we are going to give you a quick overview of whats necessary regarding the parts.

Parts Needed

1) As for the measurement of pipes, you have two for domestic drains: 32 and 40 in diameter.

2) Even if your spout is to the left, if you put a separate siphon (of the bottle), you can face the outlet of the siphon to the drain, and place the missing tube.

3) The most economical and simple option:

– With a siphon of one piece of rubber. Underneath the pica, you have what is called the valve, which is nothing more than a piece of tube with a conical head that is what is in contact with the hardware.

What you have to do, is first to present the pieces, making sure that the siphon is a little higher than the wall drain (ie, the outlet slopes down). The valve, if you saw it necessary, you can cut it.

Then you would only need two pieces: The rubber siphon of the pipe diameter of the valve of the pike (if you do not have it clear, you can go with the valve to the hardware store and ask for a siphon, and a piece of flexible PVC pipe.

Then, the order of connection would be:

– Pvc valve + rubber siphon + flexible PVC. The siphon can be fixed to the tube and valve with two endless clamps. The final piece of PVC tucked inside the wall drain, with special glue for PVC. The part of the flexible PVC that goes to the wall must be of the same diameter of the pipe embedded in the wall.

In case it is bigger or smaller than the tubes you have installed, you buy a reduction in PVC that will make an adapter to the outlet and you are done.

Same I’ve rolled up a lot. If you do not have it clear, research the diameter of the valve and make sure it matches up with what is online.
