Once the dogs settled in get yourself a 10ft lead and find a car park, that way you can decide how much lead to allow and begin trainingg the dog to stick close to a bike (by dint of figure of 8's and multiple irregular movements/a collie will soon tipple that not broaching the lead allowance is where the comfort zone is-especially if you marry it to pleasing words and the feed to come straight after). Once a dogs had a run and ready for a nose bag they'll let you feed them by hand (you can correct a snatch with a flick of a finger on it's snozzle), sublimanilly (sp) teaching them your the food master general and collisions of teeth and skin are a big no-no. Drop a thimble full of apple cider vinegar in it's drink every third day and run a raw chicken wing through it every fortnight (germs-stomach). Blanket over cage
Couple of things I have issues with.
1) You should never hit a dog on it's snout. If you look inside their mouth, the roof is ridged. It's a radiator for the blood flowing into their brains. Dogs don't sweat. They pant to draw air over the ridges in their mouth too cool the flowing blood. Hitting a dog on the snout can damage the blood vessels inside, restricting their ability to cool the blood. If you find it necessary to strike your dog, the hindquarters are pretty tough, and you'll get your point across.
2) Chicken bones splinter and shard more than any other type of bone. I won't give dogs bones, period, but chicken bones are the absolute worst ones to give them.
