Meet Kaylen

This is Kaylen. She is probably 3 or 4 years old. She came to us from Rocky Mountain Border Collie Rescue quite some time ago. As far as BC's go, she is on the small side, though I haven't measured her height yet to know what her jump height will be.

For a long time, we have worked on building her confidence. She used to just hide behind chairs and such rather than socializing. She is really afraid of thunder and will shut down when she hears it, though she has improved considerably. I am on her 3rd attempt at teaching her agility - the previous attempts were unsuccessful due to her fear issues. This time around she is doing great, and hasn't shut down in class.

She has a different personality too that only comes out when she is wound up. We call this "crazy pup" where she will attack your feet, grab toys and generally be a crazy pup. She has jumped up and ripped a sweatshirt and t-shirt recently when she was having a crazy pup moment. If we could get THAT dog in agility, she'd be amazing. She is quite fast and likes to run circles around the other dogs while they play to fetch tennis balls or frisbees.
