Just wanting to get a bit of insight/advice from dog owners who have had dogs from puppyhood.

My partner and I are adopting an 8 week old Border Collie in a couple of weeks time and need to train the pup.

Have done a bit of research and the general recommendation has been crate training, confining the dog to a pen during the day and teaching a number of basic commands by giving the dog a treat every time they correctly do what you want them to. Seems keeping a strict routine for toilet/eating/exercising is really important as like humans they hate uncertainty and get agitated when they don’t know when things are going to happen

I’ve had dogs (had a BC when I was a kid) before, but never had a puppy to train. Both my partner and I are pretty active and go for a long walk each day, I’m hoping that’ll help meet his exercise requirements, but acutely aware these guys are pretty energetic.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.
