We expect this dog to be very ”typey”to the breed. That means that it will be intelligent, hard working, and versatile. Aussies are no-nonsense dogs who thrive in a home where their brains and energy are put to good use. You don’t have to keep a flock of sheep if you live with an Aussie — although it doesn’t hurt — but you do have to keep him busy. Aussies are a high-energy breed so research them carefully before committing to owning one.

All stock dogs need lots of mental and physical stimulation to be happy and to stay out of trouble. A short walk around the block is not going to be sufficient. Aussies do best when they have a ”job” to do which occupies most of their day. This can be herding livestock, horseback riding, hiking in the mountains or on the beach, mountain biking, playing extended games of fetch, or agility games.

As a breed Australian Shepherds can be very destructive and bark for long periods if they’re not getting the exercise and mental stimulation they need. Aussies will alert bark to warn you if they see or hear something suspicious, and will protect their family and home with a surprising fierceness. This herding dog’s pushiness with livestock can carry over into the home and, with a timid or inexperienced owner, he may assume the dominant role in the family. The breed needs a firm and confident owner — Aussies probably aren’t a good choice if you’ve never had a dog before. Aussies enjoy the company of their family and prefer to stick close to their human pack. They don’t do well stuck in the backyard by themselves for long periods. Aussies are by nature standoffish with people they don’t know, and unless they have regular exposure to lots of different people — ideally beginning in puppyhood — they can become fearful of strangers. This may lead to biting out of fear and aggression. Give your Aussie lots of contact with friends, family, neighbors, and even strangers to help him polish his social skills.
