With an extremely long and smooth coat, the bearded collie has a huge tendency to develop knots, so it must be combed daily. Grooming is optional, but it is better to do it with scissors instead of a machine. Unlike the old english sheep dog, it can not only be black and white or gray and white, but also gold, blue and other variations. Its dense fur is no accident: it is intended to protect the pet from unfavorable weather conditions, so that it does not have health problems even when it spends the night outside taking care of the herd.
As it is a healthy dog in general, it does not require very specific care. Their fur, as stated earlier, should be brushed frequently to avoid tangles and to check that there are no parasites such as fleas and ticks on their skin. Ears should be examined and their physical and mental activity routine respected. In addition, the bearded collie needs affection, attention and general care that every pet needs, such as consultations at least twice a year with a veterinarian, good food, up to date vaccines and control of external and internal parasites (worms).
