History


The Bodacion is a recent hybrid. The Border Collie (one of the parent breeds) was used for herding sheep. They date back to Great Britain in the 1800s. The Dalmatian originated in Croatia. It has been used for many functions, but notably as a coach dog. They were used to run along side of horse drawn carriages (including fire carriages) to protect the horses.

Maintenance


The Bodacion will have a long silky coat, so brush a few times per week with a stiff brush and comb. Gently detangle any mats. Only bathe as needed, as too much bathing could strip the coat of oils needed to keep the coat shiny. Pay attention to regular dental hygiene.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
