As its name suggests, the Border Collie originated from the borders of England and Scotland. Because of their intelligence, stamina and hard-working personality, Borders have been trained to work as sheepdogs. These active dogs were mainly bred for working ability instead of its appearance. As a result, they come in many varieties of coat colors and markings and two coat types, smooth and rough. This category has questions relating to the different features of the Border Collie.

How do you stop two male border collies fighting?

Border Collies are well known for being same sex aggressive so it's best not to have them together at all. Failing that, the dogs should have their own toys, sleeping areas (securely away from each other), feeding areas and so on. Constant supervision is essential and you should be able to stop any challenging behavior before it escalates. When you can't supervise, the dogs should be separated and confined to their own separate space.

Every time your dogs fight, it will reinforce their reasons for fighting and make it so much more difficult to train out, it is essential that you do not allow it to happen again.

How old does a border collie have to be to breed?

A female can be bred during her first estrous cycle ...but it is HIGHLY inadvisable. It is dangerous to her during her first heat because she is physically not physically mature. Don't do it!

The expert consensus is that the dog should be 2 years of age before her first breeding, which is probably her 4th estrous cycle. [Note: this is the consensus view; there is no unanimity about this]

Why does my youg dogs eat plaster of the wall?

i think this is because they are either bored which is pretty easy for them to be as there young and like to have attention every second of the day or they find it fun and maybe tasty dogs are weird like that my border collie ate the new plaster of our wall down the bottom but he was left at home for 4 hours when we had to go out. if you want this to stop try buying small bones and when you are not around to play give it to them to chew on they usually last for about 3 days and they are cheap.

Should you shave a border collie?

No. You should never shave a border collie!

These dogs have a soft undercoat for insulation AND a longer outer coat for protection against wind, rain etc. If you shave the dog, it will have no protection against the elements and will be very susceptible to illness as the wind, rain & snow can soak all the way to its skin.

Also, the dog's outer coat may never grow back properly if you shave it off, so you run the risk of ruining your dog's appearance forever.

Border Collie's are made to be long coated so DONT shave a Border Collie EVER


Yes you may. Just make sure you have it done by a professional.

Why can't you give your border collie a heargard pill supposibly it has something to do with the ivermectin?

Some Collies suffer from a special http://www.answers.com defect due to a mutation in the multidrug resistance gene, MDR1. This is also known as "the http://www.answers.com-sensitive collie". All dogs with this mutation must be descandents of a dog who lived in Great Britain in the midst of the 19th century. This mutation is found worldwide and can even cause the death of a dog, if it gets the wrong medicine (based on Ivermectin, Doramectin, Loperamid and many more pharmaceuticals). Therefore all Collies and breeds akin to them (such as the http://www.answers.com) should either be tested or receive a different class of heartworm preventative drug, such as milbemycin oxime (Interceptor brand by Novartis).
