By attachment

Most dogs bond with their primary caregiver. The first six months of a dog’s life are very important for proper socialization and bonding. During this time, it is very important to expose your puppy to people, places and other animals. If your puppy is well socialized, they are more likely to interact positively with their environment.

If you adopted your dog when he was a little older, it doesn’t mean he won’t bond with you. While early socialization is important, ongoing socialization is equally important. Continue to expose your dog to experiences during daily walks and dog games. If your dog is struggling, there are ways to help your shy dog ​​interact with others.

Border Collie Basics

According to the American Kennel Club, border collies typically weigh 30 to 55 pounds and live 12 to 15 years. They can have rough or smooth coats and need brushing several times a week – daily when they shed. Border collies’ coats come in many colors and patterns.

Border collies can achieve great results when challenged, leading to a close, rewarding relationship with the right owner. But if you don’t spend enough time and energy on your border collie, the result can be a miserable, destructive housemate. Working border collies drive a lot and have complex problems to solve every day. Border collie companions may not officially have jobs, but they need just as much stimulation.
