Fresh Food for Border Collies
Hyper-intelligent, hyper-playful, hyper-loving—border collies are dogs on hyperdrive. Bred to herd livestock, these dogs make excellent companions—but must have jobs to do in order to feel fulfilled. Border Collies excel at agility trials, advanced obedience training, and tracking.
A healthy diet of fresh food is one of the best ways to care for your Border Collie and give them a long, healthy, active life—along with plenty of love and a mentally stimulating job to do.
What’s the best dog food for border collies?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Border Collie contributes to a healthy, active life, and could help stave off some of the ailments common to this breed.
Why fresh is best for your Border Collies
Highly processed kibble can contribute to many issues that can compromise your Border Collies’s health. Recipes from The Farmer’s Dog are made with fresh, human-grade ingredients, steamed to retain nutrients, and pre-portioned to help maintain weight.Feed Fresh Today
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Border Collie’s odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
Because they’re built to move with agility and speed, Border Collies can be prone to joint issues, particular hip and elbow dysplasia. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Border Collie.
Promote better digestion (and poops)
A fresh diet provides human-grade, highly digestible protein, which contributes to many facets of your Border Collie’s health. It supports optimal muscle growth and maintenance, and a strong heart. Another hallmark of a digestible diet is what we call “high quality poops.” Research shows that a digestible, bioavailable diet affects the quality and quantity of your dog’s poop—making it less voluminous, and less stinky, than their poop on a kibble diet!
