Crates & Grooming Aids
Crates should be large enough for your dog to stand up in and turn around. We recommend that flat-sided watering buckets be placed off of the floor and attached to the sides of the crate.
- Nylon Choke Collars (18”-22”)
- Wide Tooth Comb
- Wire Pin Brush (Large)
- Slicker Brushes
- Magic Touch #3 Spray Concentrate
We are providing you with a list of items to help you get started with making your new dog feel at home and loved.
The average cost to bathe and groom a rough coated Collie is $50.00- $100.00 depending on the condition of the coat. Smooths will be slightly less. Toenail clipping average cost $15.00.
Veterinary & Food Costs
Dry food is best since it helps keep their teeth clean, a small amount of canned food can be added or such products as Moist and Meaty. Human food is not recommended due to the sensitive nature of some collie’s intestinal tract. Premium dry food ranges in price from $30.00- $70.00 for a 30 or 40 pound bag.
- Unexpected Expenses
- Accidental Injuries
- Ex. Broken bones, sickness, allergies
- Collies need a good premium food to keep their coat shiny and healthy
