  • Care

    Like most double-coated breeds, Border Terriers shed seasonally. Most of the year, a quick brushing every week or two keeps their coats in tip-top condition. But during seasonal shedding periods, plan on a daily 30-minute session to strip out dead hair. You can skip the bath, though. The Border Terrier’s coat naturally repels dirt, and bathing actually impairs this ability. Overgrown nails can lead to pain or issues walking. So, trim regularly to keep them at an appropriate length.
