So you think you want a Beardie?
Think carefully before you take on a Bearded Collie. If you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions then a Beardie may be the dog for you:
- Am I prepared to have muddy feet through unrestricted areas of my house?
- Am I prepared for at least ten minutes grooming every day?
- Am I prepared to give this demanding dog play, training and exercise every day?
Getting a Puppy
Always contact a reputable breeder. Be wary of adverts placed on the internet – there are sadly many unscrupulous breeders and puppy farms in operation. The Club holds a list of breeders with puppies available and are happy to offer advice on the process of purchasing a puppy. Please see our Puppy List page for further information.
Adopting a Beardie
Southern Beardie Aid is a rescue service that helps find new homes for Beardies in need. A dog may need a new home for many reasons. Sometimes these dogs have not had the best starts in life and will need a lot of time and attention but often they are normal family pets who, through no fault of their own, just need a new family to love. Please see our Southern Beardie Aid page for further information.
