Understanding the Collie Brain

When Lee Windeatt first started training his Border Collie, Shy, he fell for the myth that agility dogs had to be hyped up around the agility ring to be competitive. So he followed everyone else and hyped her up. He's now learned his lesson and attempts to do the opposite. When he came across the following article by Sue Kinchin, he was so impressed with the sentiment behind it that he asked the author if he could share in with other agility folk in order to give them a better understanding of their Collie. Although we write 'Collie brain,' we are sure the underlying principles apply to most breeds to some extent. (Posting with permission from author.)
