What is a Collie Cow Hide?

If you have ever wondered what is a collie cowhide, you’re not alone. It’s also called Old Hemp, Blue Heeler, Rawhide, and Blue Heeler. This article will explain the differences between each. Read on to learn more! Here are some important facts about collie cowhides:

Old Hemp

In 1899, the National sheepdog society listed Old Hemp as their greatest stud. Since that time, the breed has been the foundation of many champion Border Collie dogs. In fact, between 1906 and 1951, Border Collie dogs won 29 trophies at the International Farmers Championship. The Australian Cattle Dog originated from Australian ranchers who crossed Old Hemp with other breeds to create a different breed. Now, the breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club.

Border Collie

A Border Collie is an intelligent, sociable, and herding dog. He is a versatile breed that can adapt to almost any living situation. However, the breed is prone to certain health problems, including eye disease and hearing loss. To prevent these issues, it is recommended to socialize with your new friend from puppyhood. Also, make sure that your new friend gets enough mental and physical exercise. Border Collies make great family pets.

Blue Heeler

Known also as an Australian Cattle dog, the Blue Heeler, or Red Heeler is a breed of Australian cattle dog. Originally from Australia, it was bred to herd cattle and helped establish the beef industry. Its work ethic made it popular among Australian cattlemen, and it eventually earned recognition from the American Kennel Club. Though the official name of the breed is Australian Cattle Dog, the Blue Heeler is considered to be a nickname rather than an official name. Other names for these breeds include Australian Cattle Dogs, Queensland Heelers, and Smithfields.


Rawhide is a great chew toy for your dog. It stimulates the wild instinct of chewing. Young dogs have this natural instinct, and rawhide gives them a safe and enjoyable way to do it. However, when a large piece of rawhide gets stuck in your dog’s throat or esophagus, it can be a dangerous situation. In severe cases, your pet may need surgery.

Symptoms of a collie cowhide

Keeping a clean, healthy Collie cowhide is crucial. Your Collie needs regular brushing, so you’ll need to take extra care with their coat. It also needs to be examined for signs of infection or irritation. Its ears should be wiped clean once a week to avoid infection. Grooming your Collie will help it have an easier time with veterinary exams and handling. Several times a week brushing is recommended to keep their teeth clean and healthy.3
