Bearded Collie

History

The Bearded Collie descends from Scottish sheepdogs that were used for sheep herding for centuries. The breed was first recognized by the Kennel Club in 1959 and since then it has become a popular breed all over the world.

Character

Bearded Collies are known for their friendly and playful nature. They are intelligent and eager to learn, and enjoy learning and exploring new things. Due to their background as herders, they are very alert and have high energy levels, so they need a lot of exercise. This makes them an excellent choice for active families.

Health

In general, Bearded Collies are healthy dogs. However, there are some health problems they are prone to such as hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism and eye problems. It's important to take your Beardie to the vet regularly for checkups and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Care

Bearded Collies have a thick, dense coat that needs regular grooming to prevent tangles and matting. It is important to brush their coat at least once a week and more often during shedding. In addition, they should be bathed and trimmed regularly to keep the coat neat and healthy. They also need sufficient daily exercise to release their energy.
