Australian Shepherd



 

Introduction

Contrary to popular belief, the Australian Shepherd is not from Australia. But why would someone name it that? Maybe it’s based on just how hardworking, intelligent and active Australians are when it comes to work. And this dog surely gives that Aussie badge the honour it deserves.

 

History

Australian shepherds, or Aussies, were bred to be working dogs. They have been in existence since the 1800s and the line continues to be improved to produce higher intelligence levels, better temperaments and extremely energetic specimen.

 

Appearance

Aussies come in many unique colours which gives you a wide palette to choose from. The predominant colour is white with large patches of black or brown or a combination of both colours.

They are medium sized dogs and are well proportioned which improves their speed and agility.

One of the most striking physical attributes of an Aussie is its eyes. When you look into your dogs eyes you’ll see a high level of intelligence at work at all times. 

  

Temperament

Aussies are very intelligent dogs which also makes them very independent dogs. Once they establish a routine and they know what is expected of them, they will continue to perform that task until you are satisfied. They love to please their masters and will do anything to be by your side.

Aussies are very affectionate and good natured dogs. But at the same time, they are also very protective of the flock they are guarding. Adding their intelligence and high energy level to the mix and you have a very effective guard dog watching over your flock. Or kids, if you have them.

 

 

Health and Care

One setback to having a very intelligent dog with a high level of energy is that they are prone to boredom. And boredom leads to destruction of property. To save yourself from all that stress (and expensive furniture repair), give your Aussie a really good workout. Engage their intelligence with some activities that challenge their smarts.

Aussies thrive best when they are given a job to do. In fact, they’re desperate to serve you in whatever capacity they can possibly muster.

Giving your Aussie a good exercise will also help prevent future issues from developing like hip dysplasia, arthritis and obesity. Keep them active and you’ll have a very happy and contented dog who’ll only leave your side if you order him to do so.
