Hi .
i know this is not briard related wondered if you could help.
My first post for ages since losing jasper..........

I could do with some help from other collie owners,i have tried collie sites but not much help.
As many know we had her as a rescue at 7.1/2 months old. She is now a fine 21 months old girl. we feed her 200 grms of wag beef soaked and a 1/4 of a tin of butchers tripe beef liver twice a day on recomedation of our vet. She wieghs 20KL. plus other treats etc.

as with most dogs they will eat all sorts of nasties, the last episode was goose droppings which she was very poorley after. also if gets the chance eats dirty weeds out of grassy puddles. Shocked
she eats the silverbirch twigs that have fallen from the tree with relish
I was wondering what any of you thought about wag.
She is always on the hunt for food. she is like a bottomless pit . Rolling Eyes

Hi Lynda,
Not quite sure what you want to know about the food.
Personally I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole but different dogs have different needs and suit different foods, so its a decision you have to make.

Have a read of this website...
http://www.whichdogfood.co.uk/dog-food-review.php?id=0014

Make sure when your dog does eat things that you don't approve of that you don't turn it into a game - ie he gets lots of attention for doing it. Maybe a more interactive walk with your collie would be a better way of teaching him what you expect rather than letting him wander off on his own to make the wrong decisions!!
Hope thats of some use

thanks debs
no we do watch her but she will dash off so now we get her on the lead if we suspect anything, difficult when they are on the lead and pick up the goose pooh.

will look at the site you gave me , apperently it has animal diritaves in it such as hoof blood and hair etc Shocked

Linda

I now feed my three on a natural diet and its made a massive difference they really enjoy there food and are heathier nothing better that a chicken caracas according to jops and gigi .

I know lots of peple who have switched and its solved numerous problems including scavaging as they are not lacking in anything. Give it a go and see how much they enjoy it , you can start quite simply by buying the natual food blocks from the pet shops with added veggies and then start introducing other bits such as chicken wings

There is a very good complete food available, designed for border collies, by top sheepdog trial people. ..its CSJ. Prices start at around 12 for 15kg. I can recommend it.
