Hey everyone!

I am a member, however I do apologise for asking 'newbie' questions as I am still learning and would love to learn more.

Currently breeding and showing border collies, however I was wondering what rations are best because I am finding it is taking 45ish days to get all stats to 20 using the super duper adult forumula. What is lagging behind is the coat condition stat. I see so many excellent breeders get all their puppies stats to 20 within 14 days and would love to know how they do this or if you guys have any tips for me!

You want to make adult and puppy conditions that are HIGH (or notch 7) in: protein, fat, and vitamin E. Medicines/Vaccines were never added as a function of the game so they can stay LOW or (notch 1). Create rations here:

Just remember to label them puppy or adult.

Remember: every breed's stats rise differently based on breed characteristics but these will give you the fastest outcome to 20-20-20.

Thank you for asking this question and for the responses.

If a custom ration should be maxed out at 7-7-7, what is different for Puppy and Adult? Thanks

Puppy rations are for dogs 13 days and younger. Adult rations are for dogs 14 days and older.

If you have a puppy on an adult ration or vice versa, you'll actually lose stats. Always remember to label your rations.

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
