Border Collie are excellent at performing tricks. They are able to learn tricks quickly and pride themselves on performing the trick to the handler's satisfaction.
Training your border collie to do pretty much any trick requires a little patience, regular practice and usually a treat. Begin with verbal commands and hand motions and your border collie will eagerly try to understand the trick. Any progress made towards the tricks goal should be met with praise, by petting your dog and telling him good job. Whenever significant progress at performing the trick is reached reward your dog with a small treat. Generally, training in short intervals is better than long sessions. Try 15 minutes a day for a week or two and most border collies will be impressively performing even the most challenging tricks.
