The Border Collie is also considered a medium-tall dog in regard to height, with an average height of 19-22 inches (male), 18-21 inches (female). If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Border Collie, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Border Collie is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Herding Group' with roots originating back to England. The energetic, affectionate and smart Border Collie with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food.

Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Border Collie has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Border Collie is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Border Collie in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Border Collie a high-protein dog food to help the dog manage their weight and still provide them plenty of protein for their naturally active lifestyle.

The Border Collie is considered a highly active dog and thus your Border Collie could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a highly active Border Collie. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a highly active dog like the Border Collie. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Border Collie is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a highly active Border Collie.
