    Cavaliers are great dogs! Their hair is considered to be Medium/Long. They are average shedders and should be brushed weekly.

    border terriers have a wiry coat, tht doesnt need to be brushed,
    you can brush it like occasionally to make it look smarter,
    borders have a coat that needs to be stripped twice a year, which is the stage i've just reached with harley, his coat will start to fray where it will become all fuzzy and all his hairs will stick up,

    you have to pull out all the hairs tht are sticking up as they are the dead hairs that need to be stripped, also its made easier by the fact the hairs turn white that need to be removed.

    this needs to be done twice a year and can take up to 7 hours to fully complete, i just do it for like half an hour a day.

    Australian Shepherds are great dogs. The one I had followed me everywhere. He was really smart too. And he loved to walk. He lived to be 18 years old, and still acted like a younger dog most of the time (fun-loving and goofy).
