thekennelat79: Placement permission for this cache was obtained from the Stansted Park Estate.

A member of the Estate staff has now begun a campaign to try and prevent people from walking in the woods, and is even attempting to challenge and evict people who are walking along Public Footpaths!

The reviewer for this area has been contacted and asked to ensure that all caches are removed from Estate land.

In order to avoid any conflict, I have chosen to archive the cache.
My thanks to all of you who have enjoyed finding it during the last 5 years.

Geocache Description:

The above co-ordinates are not those of the cache.
They are intended solely to indicate its general area.

Border Collies are sheepdogs and although they are
very versatile they are by nature a herding dog. For over
a century their breeding has been selective in order to
produce the ultimate working dog for farmers and
shepherds. As a result they are quick thinking, capable of
working out situations and have boundless energy.

These attributes make the breed very versatile and a popular
choice for the competitive canine disciplines such as agility
and obedience. However these same attributes also mean
that they need to be kept stimulated, not just by physical
exercise but also they need to be kept mentally occupied.

Border Collies vary in appearance, they can be short or long
coated, black and white, tri-coloured, white and black, blue
or red merle but the traditional markings are considered to
be black and white. Their ears can be dropped or pricked
and they vary in size and bone structure although they
should not be too heavy boned as this would impede their
speed when working sheep.

Border Collies can be registered with either the International Sheep Dog Society
(ISDS) or the Kennel Club (KC), however non-registered
dogs can be just as pure bred but without a certificate to
prove their pedigree they will not be eligible for registration.

Border Collies can make excellent companions and family
dogs but they do need to be understood. They are basically
a pack dog and understand rules and boundaries, this can
make them relatively easy to teach and train but only if
guidelines are set to begin with. If you do not want your
Collie to jump on the furniture then make sure from the very
beginning that he is aware of this rule. It would be a mistake
to think that because he is new in your home that you can
allow certain behaviour until he is settled in and then change
the rules. Border Collies are excellent at remembering the
rules you wish to change!

Being energetic and fun loving their interaction with children
can be beneficial to both child and dog but once again it is
essential that the initial boundaries are set first. To involve
the children in the training and welfare of your dog not only
helps them to understand and share responsibility for him
but it will also encourage him to see them as hierarchy.
