0:01:000:01:02

We're here in the Scottish Borders to meet Jess and her dog, Mo.

0:01:060:01:10

Let's go and say hello.

0:01:100:01:12

-Hi, Jess.

-Hi, Rory.

0:01:160:01:18

-And this must be Mo.

-Yeah.

-Oh, she's gorgeous.

0:01:180:01:22

-She looks very small. How old is she?

-Three.

-Three.

0:01:220:01:26

-Still young them, yes?

-Yes.

-Is she full of energy?

-Yes.

0:01:260:01:29

She's absolutely wonderful.

0:01:290:01:31

What's special about Mo here?

0:01:310:01:33

She's a sheepdog.

0:01:330:01:35

She rounds up all the sheep with Dad and I get to help them.

0:01:350:01:38

-So a working dog AND a pet?

-Yes.

0:01:380:01:40

-She must be busy, then.

-Yes.

0:01:400:01:42

-Does she have any time in her day for anything else?

-Not really.

0:01:420:01:46

No wonder! I'm looking forward to learning a lot more about that.

0:01:460:01:50

What do you love most about Mo?

0:01:500:01:53

Sometimes when I get her to sit, she actually lies down instead

0:01:530:01:57

and I get to tickle her tummy.

0:01:570:01:59

-A tickle down here?

-Uh-huh.

0:01:590:02:01

-Does she love it?

-Yeah.

0:02:010:02:03

Does she roll on her back and go...?

0:02:030:02:06

Now, Jess, what breed is Mo?

0:02:060:02:09

-A border collie.

-Ah, yes.

0:02:090:02:10

-How can you tell that?

-Because she's black and white.

-Yes, she is.

0:02:100:02:14

Very distinctive markings on the face. And all over her body as well.

0:02:140:02:19

Well, she's very beautiful.

0:02:190:02:21

Border collies are often used as sheepdogs

0:02:210:02:24

because they're very clever. They're trained to work on a farm -

0:02:240:02:28

their job is to round up all the sheep

0:02:280:02:30

and make sure none stray too far from the flock.

0:02:300:02:34

Ferne, can you give us some facts about working dogs like Mo?

0:02:340:02:37

Of course, Rory.

0:02:370:02:39

Border collies don't just herd sheep.

0:02:400:02:43

They can herd other animals too. Even ducks!

0:02:430:02:46

Border collies tend to be a very clever breed of dog,

0:02:470:02:51

and they like to have lots of fun by doing exercise and playing.

0:02:510:02:56

In fact, border collies can be so clever

0:02:570:03:01

they're even used to help find people who are lost.

0:03:010:03:05

Most border collies are black and white,

0:03:060:03:09

but they can be other colours too, like red and white,

0:03:090:03:13

black and brown,

0:03:130:03:14

or even grey and brown.

0:03:140:03:16

Most dogs are very loyal and like to get lots of care

0:03:220:03:25

and attention from their owners.

0:03:250:03:27

Mo's a working dog, so she doesn't sleep in the farmhouse.

0:03:270:03:31

She sleeps here in the barn.

0:03:310:03:33

That's her spotty kennel, where she sleeps.

0:03:330:03:36

But she still needs lots of looking after. How do you care for Mo?

0:03:360:03:40

We clean out her kennel, and we also give her fresh water and food.

0:03:400:03:45

Great, that all sounds very important.

0:03:450:03:48

-You're looking after her well?

-Yeah.

0:03:480:03:50

-Are we going to do any of that?

-Let's clean her kennel out.

0:03:500:03:53

-Good to do that while Mo's out playing.

-Mm.

0:03:530:03:56

-Shall we get going, then?

-Yeah.

0:03:560:03:59

OK.

0:03:590:04:00

Right, show me what to do then. Are you going to go in and sweep?

0:04:070:04:11

-Are these wood shavings in here?

-Yes.

-Keep her nice and cosy.

-Mm.

0:04:140:04:18

And that's important, isn't it,

0:04:190:04:22

because it could get cold in the barn.

0:04:220:04:24

How often do you clean her out?

0:04:240:04:26

-Once a week.

-OK.

0:04:260:04:28

That's good.

0:04:280:04:29

We'll get that bit there.

0:04:290:04:31

I thought you were going to climb in there.

0:04:310:04:34

-Excellent. How am I doing? Am I doing OK here?

-Yes.

-Thank you.

0:04:340:04:39

The wheelbarrow...

0:04:390:04:40

I'll do a wee bit of sweeping now.

0:04:400:04:43

Let's put the clean stuff in now, Rory.

0:04:480:04:51

-Teamwork.

-Yeah.

0:04:540:04:55

I like a bit of teamwork.

0:04:550:04:57

-This is nice and clean, isn't it?

-Yeah, really clean.

0:04:570:05:00

That is a good shovelful there.

0:05:020:05:06

Right, well done.

0:05:060:05:08

We missed a bit in the back.

0:05:080:05:11

Good work.

0:05:110:05:13

-Let's feed her now.

-But first we need to...?

0:05:130:05:16

-Wash our hands.

-Let's go!

0:05:160:05:18

Right. So we've got some food for Mo here. What have we got?

0:05:320:05:36

-Dry dog biscuits.

-How many scoops do you give her?

-Two scoops.

0:05:360:05:40

OK, let's go for it.

0:05:400:05:41

Looks delicious, doesn't it? We'll try not to eat it.

0:05:440:05:48

-Think we can manage not to?

-Yes.

0:05:480:05:50

What foods should you never give a dog?

0:05:500:05:52

Chocolate, raisins and grapes.

0:05:520:05:54

That's right. They're tasty for us, but they're not good for dogs.

0:05:540:05:58

-So we've got her food. How often do you feed Mo?

-Once a day.

0:05:580:06:02

-In the evening or in the morning?

-Evening.

0:06:020:06:04

Good idea. When she's run around and rounded up the sheep

0:06:040:06:08

and she's exhausted, she can get energy from this.

0:06:080:06:11

It's got the nutrients and vitamins that keep her healthy.

0:06:110:06:14

-We have something else, don't we?

-Water.

-Why is water important?

0:06:140:06:18

If they get thirsty, it's all they can drink and it's good for them.

0:06:180:06:22

Water is important for all dogs,

0:06:220:06:25

but especially for a working dog like Mo,

0:06:250:06:27

who spends a lot of time running around.

0:06:270:06:30

OK, we've got all of our food, we've got fresh water,

0:06:300:06:33

-a nice clean bed. I think we're sorted.

-Yes.

0:06:330:06:37

Mo is a very busy dog indeed.

0:06:370:06:39

Not only is she a working sheepdog,

0:06:390:06:41

she's also a pet to Jess and her family.

0:06:410:06:44

If Mo could do anything at all, what you think she'd do?

0:06:440:06:48

If my pet could be anything, she would be a pirate.

0:06:500:06:53

She would wear a pirate suit and it would be pink, purple and black.

0:06:530:06:58

She would sail the seven seas on a big pirate ship.

0:06:580:07:03

And there would be a flag with her face on it at the top.

0:07:030:07:07

She would protect her treasure chest full of bones

0:07:070:07:10

from all the wild crocodiles.

0:07:100:07:13

-What are we going to do now?

-Round up the sheep.

0:07:170:07:20

-Do you want to help?

-I'd love to!

0:07:200:07:22

What do you need to do?

0:07:300:07:32

Give her some commands so she knows which way you want her to go.

0:07:320:07:36

Wow! Show me how it's done then.

0:07:360:07:38

Away!

0:07:400:07:41

Away! Good girl!

0:07:420:07:44

Look how fast she is.

0:07:450:07:46

Come by!

0:07:500:07:52

It's taken a while for Mo to be able to herd sheep like this,

0:07:520:07:55

and a dog needs very special training before they can do it.

0:07:550:08:00

Away!

0:08:010:08:02

Come by!

0:08:080:08:10

Bring them on!

0:08:120:08:14

In here!

0:08:190:08:20

Mo, in here!

0:08:230:08:25

-That was amazing, well done.

-Thanks.

0:08:290:08:32

Do you want to try it, Rory?

0:08:320:08:33

-I'd love to. Will you teach me the commands?

-Yes.

-OK. What are they?

0:08:330:08:37

-Away, right...

-OK.

0:08:370:08:41

Come by, left.

0:08:410:08:43

And when she's facing you, that's away, that's come by.

0:08:430:08:47

Oh, so when the dog is facing me,

0:08:470:08:49

-come by and away are the other way around.

-Yes.

-That's confusing.

0:08:490:08:53

-Bring them on - straight forward.

-OK.

0:08:530:08:56

-Lie there.

-What does that mean?

0:08:560:08:58

-Just lie down?

-Yes.

-OK.

-Just stop.

0:08:580:09:01

-Come in here when you want her to come in to you.

-OK.

0:09:010:09:04

Let me just check these. So, come by is to the left.

0:09:040:09:08

Away is to the right.

0:09:080:09:10

And the other way around when the dog is facing you.

0:09:100:09:13

-In here means come to me.

-Yes.

-Lie there means stop, lie down.

-Uh-huh.

0:09:130:09:18

-And bring them in is in a straight line towards.

-Yes.

0:09:180:09:21

OK, think I've got that.

0:09:210:09:23

Mo doesn't always get it right as she's learning,

0:09:230:09:26

but she gets it right for Dad.

0:09:260:09:28

-Well, he's the farmer. He's the expert.

-Yeah.

0:09:280:09:30

-Shall I go for it?

-Yeah, good luck.

-Thank you.

0:09:300:09:34

Come by!

0:09:370:09:39

Off she goes. Wow, she is so fast!

0:09:400:09:43

The sheep are coming in.

0:09:450:09:46

When she comes this way, I'll tell her come by again.

0:09:470:09:51

Come by!

0:09:530:09:55

Away!

0:09:550:09:57

Away!

0:09:570:09:58

Bring them on!

0:10:010:10:03

Good girl.

0:10:030:10:04

Come by! Come by!

0:10:060:10:09

Away!

0:10:120:10:14

Bring them on!

0:10:170:10:19

Lie there, lie there. Lie there.

0:10:200:10:23

Mo, in here, come on.

0:10:250:10:26

Come here. Come here. Come here.

0:10:280:10:31

Ha-ha! Well done!

0:10:310:10:35

Good girl. How did I do?

0:10:350:10:37

-Good.

-Thank you very much.

0:10:370:10:39

-Think I could be a shepherd?

-No, a wee bit more practice.

0:10:390:10:42

You're right. I'm not as good as you.

0:10:420:10:44

Well, Mo, you were amazing.

0:10:440:10:46

-I thought you were brilliant, too.

-Thanks.

0:10:460:10:49

-Thanks for teaching me.

-You're welcome. High five.

0:10:490:10:52

That's the kind of command I like.

0:10:520:10:54

Good girl.

0:10:540:10:56

My Pet And Me!

0:10:570:11:00

-Mo has worked very hard, hasn't she?

-Yeah.

0:11:010:11:04

-It's time for some playtime, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:11:040:11:06

Who else have we got here?

0:11:060:11:08

This is my little sister, Libby, and this is Finn, Mo's best friend.

0:11:080:11:14

-Finn is very excited. Are you excited, Libby?

-Yes.

0:11:140:11:17

-Right, let's play then, shall we?

-Yes!

-Let's go! Woo-hoo!

0:11:170:11:21

THEY SHOUT

0:11:210:11:23

Momo!

0:11:270:11:28

Come on, Mo!

0:11:310:11:33

Fetch!

0:11:330:11:34

-Good girl.

-Well done, Mo.

0:11:410:11:43

Fetch!

0:11:430:11:44

Finn's already got a ball in his mouth!

0:11:440:11:48

Is he going to try to collect both? Well done! Come on!

0:11:480:11:52

HE WHISTLES

0:11:520:11:54

Eh-eh-eh. Momo!

0:11:560:11:58

-Come here, Momo. That was a lot of fun, wasn't it?

-Yes.

0:11:580:12:01

-What was your favourite bit?

-Throwing the ball.

0:12:010:12:04

Throwing the ball and watching them catch it.

0:12:040:12:07

-They loved it, didn't they?

-Yeah.

-Finn's still going.

0:12:070:12:11

At least Mo has calmed down.

0:12:110:12:12

That was lovely, give her a nice cuddle. Ahh!

0:12:120:12:17

Lovely.

0:12:170:12:18

-It's a lovely cuddle, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:12:200:12:23

Thank you very much for having me over.

0:12:230:12:25

It's been great meeting Mo.

0:12:250:12:27

-She's an awesome sheepdog - you guys are brilliant owners.

-Thanks.

0:12:270:12:31

High-fives all round? Pow! Pow!

0:12:310:12:33

-Mo, are you going to do a high-five?

-High-paw! Yeah, Mo!

0:12:330:12:38

My Pet And Me!

0:12:410:12:43

Hi, Ferne. Hi, Jellybean.

0:12:470:12:48

-Hi. You're looking happy. What have you been up to?

-I'm very happy.

0:12:480:12:53

I had a great time with my friends. We had so much fun together.

0:12:530:12:56

That's amazing.

0:12:560:12:57

Jellybean's having a cuddle at the minute.

0:12:570:13:00

She certainly looks very happy.

0:13:000:13:02

Pets are brilliant, but you shouldn't touch an animal

0:13:020:13:05

unless the owner says its OK.

0:13:050:13:07

Two pets you CAN play with our ours.

0:13:070:13:10

Go to the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:100:13:13

Thanks for spending time with us. We hope you've had fun too.
