Border Jack Breed Maintenance
Your Border Jack is a moderate level shedder, so he’ll need moderate amounts of grooming and brushing. This will reduce the excess hair in your home and will keep him clean and free of debris. He should be brushed at least two times a week and only bathed when necessary. Keeping up with the brushing routine will reduce the vacuuming you’ll need to do and will help reduce the irritants in the air for those in your household who suffer from asthma or other breathing problems. Your Border Jack should have his ears checked and cleaned if necessary at least weekly to reduce the potential for infections. He will need to have regular and routine eye examinations to monitor any of the eye problems which are known to afflict the parent breeds. As with almost every other breed of canine, regular teeth examinations and cleanings will help to reduce the potential for periodontal disease which leads to tooth loss.
