Border Collie Puppies Information
Border Collie Puppies
are without a doubt some of the cutest, most adorable little things you've ever laid eyes on.
Border Collies are born in litters of around four to eight puppies, and they quickly grow into strong, working dogs with playful attitudes.
Each of these Border collie puppy’s have a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years. The male dogs can grow anywhere from 19 to 22 inches (48 to 56 cm) and weigh about 30 to 45 pounds (14 to 20 kg). While the female Border Collie can grow anywhere from 18 to 21 inches (46 to 53cm) and can range in weight anywhere between 27 to 42 pounds (12-19kg).
You can typically start to train your Border collie puppies at around 12 weeks of age or whenever they have been weaned. Make sure you give dedicated training to each of them before training them in a group.
Discipline has to start off with one on one sessions or else it could become very chaotic. Puppies require a lot of attention, so make sure you are playing with them between each command or so. It is hard to get a New Puppy to focus sometimes and if you see that they are simply in a 'play' mode then just let them run around for little bit until they get tired.
When they are tired they are usually easier to train. However, please avoid training them when they are exhausted, it will not do much good in the end.
Feeding puppies treats are very necessary for them to learn new things. You typically can save some money by buying regular dog treats and breaking them in half. The recipe in these treats are, for the most part, the same just a smaller size. Make sure that when you are feeding them these treats, they are not too big for them to chew.
Since Border collie puppies are at such a young age, then it is almost necessary to watch them constantly. They could actually eat plastic or other dangerous materials and substances if you do not secure these locations for them to get into.
Since they are so young, they do not have the capabilities to fight off any poison and could simply just die. Be sure that your cleaning closet is closed at all times or in such a way your dogs cannot sniff into it.
You might want to invest in a gate so that if you are off to work, they can still remain safe. If you already have a maid, perhaps she can watch them and ensure that they do not get out. Any Rat Poison should be put high above the shelves.
You should invest in a good size Dog First Aid Kit, because if your little puppy has ingested some of these poisons you can still have a chance at saving their lives.
It is also recommended that you talk to your neighbor and ask them to let you know whenever they have put poison out so you know that you shouldn't let your puppies outside.
