Origins

The ancestry of the Bearded Collie can be traced back to Britain during the 16th century. Their development can be credited to a polish merchant named Kazimierz Grabski. Kazimierz once decided to trade his shipment of grain for Polish lowland dogs.

These sheepdogs would later be crossbred with the native Scottish variety. The resulting breed became the ancestor of the Bearded Collie that is so well known today. They were so named because of the beard-like hair that grows on their chins.

After the Second World War, the Beardie was on the verge of extinction. Fortunately, breeding programs spearheaded by Mrs. Olive Wilson helped to save the breed.

In the 17th and 18th centuries, Bearded Collies were mainly used for herding. They were also used in driving flocks to the market. Today, they make superb family pets, show dogs and working sheepdogs.

Key Characteristics Of Bearded Collies

Are Bearded Collies Family-Friendly?

Many say they are great family-oriented pups as they love spending time with their owners.
They’re also very well-behaved even around kids, however as with all breeds, should be supervised

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Bearded Collies may suffer from:

Colonic disease

Hypoadrenocorticism

A rare hormonal disorder where the adrenal glands fail to produce sufficient hormones, leading to symptoms such as weakness, vomiting, and dehydration.

Knee ligament tear

Digestive sensitivity

Nature / Temperament

Strong, energetic, intelligent, and affectionate

Suitable Environment

Beardies do best in large fenced yards or in areas where they have room to move.

Other Considerations

● They are also known as the Highland Collie, Hairy Mou’ed Collie or Mountain Collie.
● The colours of the Beardie coats range from black to blue, fawn and brown, along with white markings.
● Bearded Collies don’t like to be locked up. They’re likely to start barking if left alone for prolonged periods.
● Some beardies develop allergies as a result of the monthly heartworm preventive. Take your dog to the vet and get advice about their health and medication.

How can I take good care of my Bearded Collie?

Nutrition

Beardies are a medium-sized breed. As such, it’s not difficult to find dog foods appropriate for their size. Opt for high-quality kibble formulated with plenty of proteins.

The recommended daily intake for adult Beardies is 1.5 – 2 cups of dry dog food and 3 – 4 cups for puppies.

Grooming

One of the most notable characteristics of this breed entails their waterproof, double-coat. These coats hang over their whole body, including their chins.

To keep these coats tangle free, brush them several times every week. You’ll need to brush them even more often during their shedding season.

Also, dry their coats thoroughly, especially during the wet season. This will help prevent skin conditions.

Exercise

Bearded Collies have tons of energy. As such, they need at least an hour of exercise every day.

The easiest way to help them expend their energy is to take them for long walks. No doubt your pup will jump with excitement as soon as you take them outdoors. Short runs and jogs are also an excellent way to exercise them.

Training

Bearded Collies are one of the most trainable dog breeds. They’re intuitive and learn commands pretty fast. The only thing owners should keep in mind is to start training them from an early age.

As soon as you adopt your Beardies, take them out to interact with people. Expose them to new faces, environment and sounds.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Bearded Collie Questions

Generally, they are a people-loving breed. As such, they should get along well with kids.

But, they should first be socialised and taught how to interact with people. Similarly, kids should be taught how to handle young Beardie puppies.

Whether canine or feline, Beardie pups adapt well to living with fellow animals. They’re very friendly although there may be certain variations in some. 

Often, these dogs regard everyone as a friend. Still, you may need to supervise their interactions. Their sheer exuberance can be overwhelming for smaller animals.

Most bearded Collies are adaptable. As long as they’re given enough exercise, they fit well into most lifestyles.

Bearded Collies can be hard to come by. The average price of a bearded collie for sale is $1200 to $1900.
