Australian Shepherd's Temperament: [edit]

The Australian Shepherds are typically highly energetic, requiring a great deal of exercise and attention. Sometimes they can be calm and easy-going. The dog of this breed enjoy working, whether it is learning and practicing tricks, competing in dog agility, or engaging in any other physically and mentally involving activity. Dogs may show reserved and cautious guarding behaviors. Australian Shepherds are kind, loving, and devoted to those they know. They are very loyal to their owners, and are rewarding dogs if treated well. Because the breed was developed to serve on the ranch, a job which includes being protective of its property, it is inclined to bark warnings about neighborhood activity, but its barks can be very annoying and unpleasant. However, it is not inclined toward obsessive barking. Australian Shepherds (or Aussies) are intelligent, learns quickly, and loves to play. This means that a bored, neglected, unexercised Aussie may invent its own games, activities, and jobs, which to a busy owner might appear to be hyperactivity.

Australian Shepherd's Description: [edit]

Australian Shepherd’s head should have a flat skull or moderate dome. Equal in length to the back of the skull, the muzzle should be neither massive or snipey but round, and only slightly tapered. A scissor or level bite is permitted. Colours for the eyes can be very interesting with blue, brown, and amber or combination, flecked or mottled, all accepted. Almond in shape, the eyes should be wide set and show an alert and intelligent expression. Noses also play the colour game with black nostrils asked for in the darker dogs, while red dogs can have brown noses. Merles can have pink spots on their noses, so long as the spots cover less than 25% of the nose. Triangular in shape and moderate in size, folding forward at the top. The neck is strong and slightly arched sporting a ruff above the finely boned shoulders, which create close-set withers. The chest is deeper than it is wide and the ribs are well sprung but not barrel shaped.

Australian Shepherd's Exercise Needs: [edit]

Australian Shepherd's needs about 80 - 100 minutes per day. Long walks are essential but are still not enough. Roadwork and free running are both needed for the good of the dog. This dog will work well in obedience, agility, fly ball or herding, all areas where he will do himself and his trainer proud.
