Willing to learn and very loyal, this dog will surely provide you with a lot of love.

I had my 3-year-old rough male groomed for the first time. They cut his coat tail, mane, underbelly, etc. I am upset because he needs this for temp control, as well as pretty looks. How long/will it grow back?

If they cut him differently from what you specified then I would get your money back. His fur will grow back, but it will take some time. He will start getting his winter coat in the next couple of months when the weather starts to cool off. Most likely by November - December he'll be fully back to normal. I would suggest not going back to that groomer if you do not like what they did to him.

What is the difference between rough and smooth coat Collies? Does one shed more than the other? Is one a breed that has a double coat?

Rough Coated Collies have a double coat with a short layer and then a long rough layer. The smooth Collie has only the one layer of fur. Both dogs shed, however, the Rough Collie is said to shed a bit more which is most likely because the breed has longer fur and it is easier to see.

I just took into our home a miniature Collie dog. How can I tell if she's a Collie or Sheltie and don't have any peppers on her? If I wanted to sell her what would be a fair price?

A dog DNA test can tell you what breed or breeds of dog she is. You can get them at your vet, or buy them online. If you were to put her up for adoption, place the price as to what it would be to get her spayed, plus one round of vaccinations. Although you should have the dog spayed and vaccinated before she goes to a new home, this way you know the owner would have the money for the procedures if needed.

Will a Collie puppy be alright being left alone for 4-8 hours a day, maximum 20 hours a week? I am a college student, but my schedule is very flexible and constant. Some days I'm only gone for school and work a couple hours a day, however, there are days where the dog I adopt might be home alone 4-8 hours max. I do live at home with my mom so thankfully there would be someone home when I'm not. I know they're a pretty active breed, which getting the exercise it needs wouldn't be a problem, but are they okay to be alone for that long?

As long as the dog has gotten the exercise he/she needs before you leave him/her or at least some exercise before you go, the dog should be fine no problem. Since there will be someone there to allow the dog to go out to the bathroom, the dog should be fine. The Border Collie breed needs an average of 2 - 3 hours of hard exercise a day to tire him/her out. While the Rough and Smooth Collie need an average of 1 - 2 hours of hard exercise per day. I would suggest adopting an adult dog, as that will give you the maximum amount of wiggle room with leaving the dog at home before you exercise him/her when you get home. Look into puzzle games and other forms of mental exercise for your dog while you are away.

Which sex of Collie would be the best to get as a companion to my male sheltie? Would 2 males fight Would it be best to get a female collie? Would 2 males fight? Sheltie is only 2 years old. I had a large male collie years ago and he was very mellow which makes me think they would not fight territorial. My Sheltie just loves to meet and play with other dogs and I do miss my large Collie very much and always wanted another one. The Sheltie is neutered.

Shelties are fine with male or females but Collies are territorial and usually fight with other male dogs so a female dog would be the best.

Anonymous

The best combination is male/female. Second best is male/male and third is female/female. All likely would get along though. Spaying/neutering help them get along much better.

As your sheltie was there first, he'll in all likelihood establish himself as top dog and a new Collie pup entering the picture will more than likely defer to him as boss even as he gets older as long as your Sheltie accepts him. I've had 2 unneutered male Collies living in the same house in perfect harmony.
