  • my mom has a garden with a stone path through the middle... she walked her collie over the path or around the garden repeating "path...path...path" to teach him the word and where it was... now if he starts going towards the garden she will say path and he will follow the path... it has been about five years and she still has to remind him if he is very excited but for the most part he stays out of the garden on his own.

  • you make a loud noise with your mouth (not a word) every time he tries to get into it and claim the space as yours by blocking his way. you must do this every time he tries after awhile he will know his place and your property and won't try to invade it. watch dog whisperer on natgeo tv.
