The Border Stack is one of the most unique designer dogs currently in existence. This is because of the fact that, unlike most hybrid dogs, this breed is developed by combining three different purebred dogs – the Border Collie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the Jack Russell Terrier. Typically, the Border Collie makes up half of the bloodline while the two other breeds take a quarter each. Because of this mating, the resulting Border Stack is tremendously hyperactive and athletic. Because of their infinite amount of energy, this breed needs to be with an owner that will devote time and affection to keep them healthy and satisfied.
Because of the lineage of the Border Stack, it is no surprise that this breed is one of the best designer dogs for canine sports. In fact, some even argue that this hybrid was created specifically to participate in various canine competitions and sports. Not only are they exceedingly athletic, they are also clever and can easily be trained. A canine sport that Border Stacks really excel in is flyball. This activity is a relay race where participating dogs run over hurdles in order to fetch a ball from a spring-loaded flyball box and bring it back to the starting line. The beauty of this sport is that dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds can participate in it. It is also a fun way to train your dog and help them get physically and mentally stimulated.
Parkour is one of the coolest disciplines practice by individuals. In this practice, a person moves through and conquers “obstacles” that they encounter in their natural environment. This usually includes jumping, running, tumbling, climbing, vaulting and simply working past fear. A dog version of this discipline, one that is less extreme, is known as canine parkour. Also known as urban agility, this activity involves dogs learning to interact with their surroundings and going through different “obstacles” that they encounter. It is a non-competitive event but it has gained a lot of attention among dog owners who want their furry buddies to try something new and unique.
The Border Stack, as you probably already know, is an immensely hyperactive dog that loves to move around. They thrive on vigor and they have a knack for always doing something. However, there are times when too much activity can cause your dog stress. Even a lively dog such as the Border Stack needs to have some downtime every now and then. One of the best and most natural ways to get your dog to relax is through aromatherapy. Remember that dogs experience the world mainly through their sense of smell. Hence, a calming and soothing scent can be highly beneficial to your dog.
The rain is usually not favored by dog owners as this limits the activities that they can do with their dogs. However, there is a way to bring some joy to your pooch’s day after the rain has passed. Simply go out to your backyard and play in the puddles left behind by the rain. This is a guaranteed way to turn your gloomy day around.
Going for a run is one of the best pick-me-ups in the morning because of all the endorphins you will release and the energy you will feel throughout the day. But instead of going alone, why not bring your Border Stack with you? This is a great way to start both of your days and will help keep your dog feeling physically stimulated throughout the day.
The Border Stack is an interesting hybrid dog that is seemingly tailor-made to become the perfect pet. This designer dog is agile, intelligent, loyal and full of personality. However, their stubborn side may show up at times. Therefore, as the owner, you have to be willing to spend the time to train and play with the Border Stack so that you can keep them happy and healthy.
