    Grooming needs?

    i have been considering a few different dog breeds, rough and smooth Collies among them. I was wondering how difficult it is to properly maintain a rough coat.

    How often do you brush your dogs and what tools are required?

    Smooths do not require a lot of grooming. They are a bit more hyper than the roughs.
    I have 2 roughs. One make one female. Males hair is thicker and longer.
    I love taking one evening (usually Thursday, before the weekend) sitting on the floor, listen to my favorite TV show, and working their hair. They see the brushes come out and take their turn enjoying every minute..sleeping at times..
    Baths do not have to be often with a collie, but when I give them, they get completely blow dried as wet hair can cause sores and infected skin.
    I also try to keep mine in during he rain,
    I take a lot of pride in their hair and appearance.. nice fluffy clean collies will keep you hugging them and your friends kids and grandkids will not be able to keep their hands off them either.

    Such beautiful dogs :007: - I am lucky in that my little short-hair needs nothing more than a stroke over wearing a lightweight latex glove if a baby wipe or now a proper dog wipe is not enough.

    But I do love seeing long-haired larger dogs although I know I will never be able to have one. xx
