Border Collie Pit Breed Maintenance
The Border Collie Pit has a moderate level of maintenance mostly due to the contribution of the Border Collie breed parent. Since he has the possibility of inheriting any or all of the characteristics of either or both of the breed parents, his coat will likely need to be thoroughly brushed at least once or twice a week to reduce matting and shedding. Bathing or shampooing your pet should only be done when necessary. Periodic trimming will be necessary if he inherits the coat from the Border parent. The coat of your pet will likely be of the shedding type since both breed parents are shedders and neither of them is hypoallergenic, making it important for you to keep him brushed and groomed to avoid problems for those in your household who are asthmatic or who have breathing problems. As with most canine breeds, this hybrid will need routine and regular teeth checkups and cleaning, eye examinations and attention to their ears to keep them clean and free from infection.
