Kash Flow, a collie mix dog, is also known as Kash the Dog!
The collie mix is part Border Collie and part Australian Shepherd. Two of the smartest breeds of dogs known. Sometimes their smartness can work against you if you are not careful.
Now collie mix dogs are so darn loyal, and they make great companions. They need to be taken care of though. Regular brushing of their coat keeps mats from forming, and also keep an eye on their skin. It can be sensitive.
Kash gets bathed every 3 weeks, maybe more, maybe less. All depends on what conditions he gets into. When he hikes on dusty or muddy trails, or swims in swamp ponds, he may get a bath a lot sooner. Poison ivy gets on his fur when running through the fields and woods, and that can easily transfer to you, so that is something we look out for. (we both have poison ivy as I write this!)
Kash the Dog has been swimming in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, many rivers including, Mississippi, Columbia, St. Lawrence Seaway, Hudson, Hoh, Klamath, Kalamazoo, Rabbit, Merced, Wolf, Little Two Heart, Yellow Dog, and many others. Plus he has been swimming in all 5 Great Lakes! Kash, our Collie mix loves to swim!
Kash uses a life vest when he swims in fast water or goes out in waves. We recommend the EzyDog Doggy Flotation Device Dog Life Vest Jacket. This vest has superior durable construction and features up to 50% more flotation material than most other pet life jackets. And it fits well without making Kash uncomfortable. Gives us a better sense of comfort knowing he has it on.
Kash the Dog loves his co-master, Shelly. He just adores her and protects her with a gentle fierceness! He is my pal and daily companion, but when Shelly comes home, he is all about her! What a great thing to see! She has him trained her way, which is probably better than my method. She has a great way of dog training, I have mine. Kash and I use eye signals and head bobs. That really makes Shelly mad at times, when he will only listen to me until I give him the signal!
Pet you dog while you talk sincerely to them. They like that. And remember, Collie mix dogs make great companions, so train them and take care of their needs and they will be loyal to the ends of the earth to you!
