The long shaggy coat of a Bearded Collie needs brushed on a daily basis to prevent the coat from matting. In addition, they need to be checked on a regular basis for ticks, which can easily hide under the long hair of a Bearded Collie. Another problem that you may find with this breed is because they enjoy playing outdoors in all kinds of weather, you may find a collection of leaves, mud, twigs, and other manner of things embedded in their fur. You want to make it a practice to check your dog's coat for foreign material whenever he comes in from outdoors. This will not only prevent him from being uncomfortable, but it prevents you from having the outdoors all over the house.

Some owners prefer to have their dog's hair groomed professionally clipped every couple of months, and that is your option. Even with professional grooming, you will need to brush his hair daily to remove knots and matting that still infiltrate his fur. Some dog owners choose to keep their dog's fur in a "puppy cut" in order to reduce the need for brushing, and although this reduces the need for brushing, it does not eliminate it altogether. It also requires regular visits to the groomer in order to keep it trimmed and neat.

In addition to brushing, your Bearded Collie also needs to be bathed and have his teeth brushed regularly. His teeth need brushed on a daily basis, but you can bathe him based on his level of activity and how dirty he gets. Many veterinarians advise against bathing your dog more often than once a week, but you can make your own decision if your dog needs bathed less than that. Of course, if your dog gets very dirty, you may have to occasionally bathe him more than once in a week, but do not do it on a routine basis except on the advise of your vet. You also need to check your dog's ears for ear mites and keep them free of dirt and grime that may hinder his hearing.

Tending to your dog's grooming needs will make you and him much happier. He will be free of tangles in his fur, will smell clean, and he will not have problems with his teeth. He depends on you to take care of grooming him on a regular basis so that he is comfortable, and it doesn't take that much time to do if you make it a regular routine. It is only necessary to brush his teeth and his coat every day; you can bathe him when you feel he needs a bath. When you bathe him, you can take that time to check his ears as well.
