Border Collie Food
Border Wars must prepare good quality pet food under the supervision and approval of a veterinarian, whether commercially or locally. All diets should be appropriate for the dog’s age (puppies, adults or older). Some dogs may be overweight, so keep track of how many calories your dog is consuming and its weight level. Tasty foods could be an important helper in exercise, but overeating can lead to obesity. Find out which foods are healthy for pets and which are harmful. Contact your veterinarian if you have questions about your dog’s weight or diet. There should always be fresh water.
Border Collie Grooming
This seed has two layers. Thick coats are of medium length and feathers, while soft coats are short and thick. Both are weatherproof double tight jackets. Caring for both is the same: the dog should be inspected with a brush one or two times a week, and often, if necessary, the coat should be removed from carpets, clutter, dirt and debris. Brush your teeth daily during the planting season. As with all varieties, BC nails must be cut regularly.
Border Collie Exercise
This high-energy sport is very active and needs daily exercise, just bypassing the block or walking fast in the yard. When they’ve a place to work and run, they thrive. Non-functioning collisions at the border should be actively exercised daily. Of course, this is not the kind of active owner who likes to be at home or leaves home often. BC is often involved in group work (and they are good), not to mention confidence, agility, crowd games, and sports i.e. ice hockey and volleyball.
Border Collie Training
Early socialization is important for cross-border alliances, as from infancy to about seven months you need to be in active contact with different people and situations. Early and lifelong obedience training will make him feel happy and provide the necessary mental motivation. Border Collie is very smart and well-prepared, as well as a superstar of canine work such as animal husbandry, obedience and dexterity. As animals and people are prone to grazing, they are well connected with adults and educated children. These dpgs love their families, but might avoid strangers.
Border Collie Health
Border collie is usually a very strong and healthy breed. Responsible breeders check the health of the breeding herd, such as pelvic progressive renal atrophy, dysplasia, deafness, epilepsy, eye disorders, neurofibrillary syndrome and neutrophilic snare syndrome. BC ears must be checked on regular basis for symptoms of infection and teeth should be cleaned regularly.
