Border Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
The Border Sheepdog is a relatively low maintenance breed. Because of his undercoat, he tends to shed moderately throughout the year with a rather larger shed twice a year. The best way to keep his long, soft fur in top condition is to brush it thoroughly at least twice a week with an undercoat rake, a slicker brush, and a pin brush. Bathing only needs to happen occasionally or when your dog gets especially dirty. Besides brushing and bathing, be sure to trim your Border Sheepdog’s nails every few weeks or when you can hear them clicking against the floor.
