Bearded Collies in the Movies

In addition to their roles as show dogs and working dogs, bearded collies have also been seen in the movies, television, and even in catalogs. Some of the credits include The Shaggy Dog, a 2006 Disney film starring Tim Allen; Agent Cody Banks, a 2001 film that shows Cody in one scene walking a Bearded Collie; and a Bearded Collie appeared in the September 2001 issue of the Land's End catalog. Other credits include Please Don't Eat the Daisies, a sitcom from the 60s where the co-star is believed to have been a Bearded Collie, and there is speculation that Tiger from The Brady Bunch was either a Bearded Collie or a Bearded Collie mix.

Grooming a Bearded Collie

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. [...]

Prevention of Escape Of The Bearded Collie

One of the most important things to learn about a Bearded Collie is they are not happy being confined to the backyard for hours at a time. If they have nothing to do or become bored, they will find their own excitement, which may mean escaping the yard. They are known escape artists, and when determined, they will make their way down the street or wherever else suits their fancy. Bearded Collies are not content to be left with nothing to do, and if you put them in the backyard for long periods, they will find a way to escape. [...]

Breeding Bearded Collies

If you want to breed your Bearded Collie, you may want to seek out a professional breeder rather than try to do it yourself. With a professional breeder, you can seek out the very lineage you want in order to make sure you are doing everything you should be doing in order to get the best match for your dog. Whether you are breeding a male or female, a professional breeder can assist you with the process, and you will stand a better chance of success than looking for a mate for your dog and hoping they will be attracted to one another. Although we don't often think of animals being attracted to one another, sometimes a female in season is not attracted to the male with which she is placed. Professional breeders can help overcome this problem by having a selection of males for breeding purposes. [...]

Keeping Your Bearded Collie Mentally Alert

It's fortunate that Bearded Collies love to play because playing keeps them mentally alert. Just like humans, if they allow their minds to relax, they will lose their sense of concentration. In addition, playing means your dog is not bored, and if he is not bored, he remains mentally alert. It works similar to humans we lose our concentration on a task if we find that task boring. For example, students who try to read a book for school that they find boring will tend to doze off while reading. Likewise, a boring movie will make us fall asleep. [...]

Herding Abilities of the Bearded Collie

Although it is possible to keep a Bearded Collie as a pet, they are very energetic dogs, and as such, they work well as herding dogs for both sheep and cattle. Their history takes them back to the Scottish Highlands where they performed their duties as a working dog doing just that, herding the sheep. They are a very strong and reliable breed that is able to endure the harshest working conditions, even that of a difficult herd of sheep or cattle. [...]

The Energetic Bearded Collie

By virtue of its very nature, the bearded collie is a working dog. That doesn't mean, however, that you cannot transform it into a family pet, but you have to remember it will not be content to sit at your feet or be confined to the backyard. They require a great deal of exercise, and are happiest when they are doing something. In spite of their need to have frequent exercise, they prefer to be indoors with their families when they are not working or exercising. [...]
