How often to trim border collie?

Best answers
How often should you groom a Border Collie? Some would say every 4 to 8 weeks, others recommend weekly, but most of the time, a Border Collie needs only one bath every eight weeks or when needed. But during shedding season (spring and fall), it's best to deal with excessive blowing coat with frequent grooming.
FAQ
✔️
Trimming your Border Collie is simple once you get the hang of it. You want to be careful not to cut too much hair from your dog but think of it as a tidy up. You will want to focus on the obvious knots and mats that are on your dog's coat, trimming them off.
✔️
Your Collie will need a minimum of two hours exercise every day, but with Collies the more, the better! We'd recommend spreading this across the day in several walks with off-lead exercise in a secure area. On top of this, Collies love to keep their brains active, too!
✔️

every three months

Typically, this breed only needs to be bathed every three months or so. If you take your dog on an extra muddy adventure, you can up the frequency (you don't want mud tracks all over your house!), but don't overdo it; going overboard and bathing your dog too frequently can irritate their skin.

Bathe your border collie only when he needs it.

Dogs who spend a lot of time outdoors may need a monthly bath, while indoor pets might need a bath only once every three months.

Use a mild, natural shampoo designed specifically for canines.

✔️

every 3-4 months

Once every 3-4 months is the ideal frequency to bathe a Border Collie. If your collie isn't particularly dirty, you can even go for longer without bathing. This is because collies are naturally hygienic and their coat maintains itself. Overbathing should be avoided.
