Keeping your Border Collie physically and mentally active is key for health and wellbeing. They will benefit from a regular schedule in daily walks and fetch sessions, and interactive toys to keep their minds stimulated to prevent boredom
Border Collies are one of the smartest dog breeds and as such enjoy a puzzle or mental tasks to keep their brains moving! Mental stimulation is key to keeping your Border Collie happy.
Your Border Collie loves solving puzzles, by using a puzzle feeder or go slow bowl this can help make their mealtimes more interactive and may help to reduce the risk of bloat. Slowing down mealtimes can also help your dog to feel fuller after each meal, so they are less likely to beg for extra snacks!
Border Collies can have a short or medium length coat with a high tendency to shed. To avoid your clothing and furniture being covered in dog hair, groom your dog regularly with a deshedding brush or undercoat rake.
Daily walks or running are essential for the high energy Border Collie. While a simple flat collar may be sufficient for some, if you have a Border Collie who pulls, choose a harness for more control.
Give your Border Collie puppy the best possible start in life with premium quality medium breed puppy food designed to support healthy bone and joint growth. Other essentials include puppy training pads, chew toys, crates, beds etc.
