Breed Summary

You will definitely fall in love by just looking at this small Aussie dog. But aside from his adorable cuteness, you must also know other Australian Shepherd breed information to properly take care of your Aussie. The first thing you have to know about an Aussie is that he is not only friendly and playful; an Aussie’s characteristics also include loyalty, protectiveness and braveness. Despite his small size, an Aussie will definitely try his best to protect you from danger, a trait that he unfortunately carries onto any stranger. However, if you are able to train him properly to prepare him for social situations, then you will not have a problem with his fighter attitude. You will also enjoy having an Aussie in your life if you’re an active person. Australian Shepherds are naturally energetic and they love going on walks and playing around in wide-open spaces.

Facts - Overview

The Australian Shepherd breed, more fondly called the Aussie but also known as the Spanish Shepherd, the New Mexican Shepherd or the California Shepherd, is one smart and very active dog. He is not one to snuggle cutely and cuddly while you read a book or watch the television. In fact, an Aussie can spend an entire day running and playing around. He needs to always be occupied with games and dog sports and he will also enjoy training sessions. If you love jogging, hiking or trekking and if you have an active lifestyle, the Australian Shepherd is definitely the right pal for you.

Aside from being smart and energetic, the Australian Shepherd is also very devoted to his people. He is very loyal and protective and he will do everything that he could to protect you from any stranger. However, with the proper social training, an Aussie can grow fond of new people as well. He is highly trainable and adaptable and his affectionate nature will surely come in handy during your training sessions.

When it comes to other Australian Shepherd breed information like his physical attributes, a regular-sized Aussie will not weight more than 65 pounds and not grow taller than 23 inches at the shoulder. His puppy dog eyes can either be amber, blue, brown, green or hazel and his mane usually has a marble-like appearance over a black, blue or red merle or red coat. When adopting an Aussie, you should also know that the white mane color is related to deafness or blindness of this breed so avoid choosing a puppy with this color if you don’t want the additional caring obligation.

You must also be aware of the type of Australian Shepherd that you will bring to your home. There are actually two types of Aussies; those who are bred specifically for dog shows and those who are bred for herding. If you live on a farm and want a good herding dog, then you should opt to take the herding Aussie with you. But if you strictly want a household pet, then the showcase Aussie is better suited for your preferences.

For a beautiful, fun and loyal companion, you must definitely adopt an Australian Shepherd. And to know more about this wonderful breed, you may also read the other sections we have provided about the Aussie.


Facts - Personality

Many people have fallen in love with the Australian Shepherd’s affectionate nature. Not only that, an Aussie’s personality also includes adaptability and intelligence. Take a closer look below as we discuss these personality traits in more detail.

Affectionate: As an owner, you will have no problem with the Australian Shepherd’s temperament. He is sweet, caring and protective towards his people and you will see these characteristics with his body language. Because of this, you should expect to spend a lot of time with him and to give him his much needed attention. The constant care is totally worth it because you will feel how much an Aussie can love you back.

Adaptable: Though an Aussie might be a bit aggressive towards strangers, he can be trained to adjust to different social situations. This is because an Australian Shepherd is highly adaptable, which means a constant training will teach him how to handle new people. It will also help his social skills if you train him at an early age. It’s best if an Aussie undergoes social training when he is only about 10 to 12 weeks old. His adaptability and affectionate character also makes it easier to have a new baby in the family. He will not be hostile towards the baby. Instead, he will show the baby the same love and protectiveness that he will show you.

Smart: In line with the previous Australian Shepherd personality, this breed also proves to be super smart. This makes training sessions all the more easier. His intelligence is also the reason behind his incredible herding skills. He can handle a small to medium flock of poultry without any help and he can actually make decisions all on his own.


Facts - Care

An Australian Shepherd puppy’s care involves consistency; an Aussie likes to have everything done on schedule every day. He expects to be fed, walked, and put to bed on the same time as he was the previous day. So if you want to change the time of your feeding, walking or sleeping, you must allot a few weeks of training before the puppy gets used to the new schedule.

Aside from consistency, the active nature of Australian Shepherds requires them to do a lot of activities to channel their energy. You must allot time to take him out on long walks if you don’t want an upset puppy inside your home. But you can also train your Aussie to help you with house chores. They are very good in following instructions once you trained them. Let them help you do the laundry or ask them to throw away trash properly. Not only will they make your house chores easier, but you will also be giving them the right Australian Shepherd care.

In addition, Aussies like playing games and running around. They can last an entire day of just playing fetch, which makes them good playmates for young kids. They can even pick up balls during soccer or T-ball practice. If you are a coach of these teams, you can bring your Aussie with you during practice to help you out and to also develop his social skills.


Facts - Grooming

Our network of top breeders can assure you that their Australian Shepherd’s health is in good condition. However, any breed of dog still has the potential to develop genetic diseases and other complications. There’s no need to worry though. We are here to help you maintain the health of your dog so that he can stay in shape and live for a full 10 to 12 years.

To prepare you for any complications that may arise as the puppy grows, you should be aware of the diseases that are common to this breed. These diseases include hip dysplasia, epilepsy and several types of eye problems.

Hip dysplasia is a genetic disorder that causes the cartilage in the hip of the dog to wear away over time. This is due to a malformation of the hip socket which means that the head of the thigh bone doesn’t fit well into the Aussie’s hip socket. The condition may cause mild to severe inflammation that may soon lead to arthritis. To avoid expensive surgical corrections or total hip replacement, you should regularly have your Aussie checked by a veterinarian to make sure that the condition stays under control.

Epilepsy is another common disorder with the Australian Shepherd breed. However, there are currently no screening tests to determine if the Aussie is epileptic. Because of this, only time will tell if the puppy is safe from the disorder or not.

When it comes to the common eye defects of Australian Shepherds, it is possible that the puppy may develop cataracts, collie eye anomaly, colobomas, detached retinas, persistent pupillary membrane or progressive retinal atrophy. Our dog breeders have tested the parents of their Aussie puppies before they were bred to see if they have these conditions so as to minimize, if not eliminate, the possibility of the development of the said conditions. But you must still bring your puppy to a dog ophthalmologist regularly to keep your puppy’s eyes in check.

As for the Australian Shepherd’s nutrition, a well-balanced diet will go a long way to keep your puppy healthy. It doesn’t take and cost much to maintain an Aussie’s health since they are a naturally active breed and their day-to-day activities will surely keep them exercised.

Appearance

Australian Shepherds are medium-sized dogs that are slightly longer than they are tall. Their eyes have a wide range of colors including amber, blue and brown, and can sometimes even be dual-colored. Meanwhile, their ears, which lie on top of their heads, are triangular and usually erect.

Aussies weigh about 40 to 65 pounds and measure up to 18 to 23 inches at the shoulder.

Coat and Color

Australian Shepherds have a marble-like color with a black, blue or red merle, or red medium-length coat. They can have straight or wavy hair with featherings behind their legs and a full mane around their necks.

Grooming Needs

When it comes to the Aussie’s grooming, the first thing that you have to remember is to regularly brush his coat to remove dead hair that can otherwise stick to your furniture and clothes. However, during the spring and the fall, your puppy might experience more shedding so you need to give him warm baths and blow dry his hair every day.

During non-shedding seasons, the rest of the steps on how to groom Australian Shepherds are easy. You don’t need to give him baths every day, only when he gets dirty. Remember to clean his ears and brush his teeth as well. Meanwhile, his nails are normally worn down because of his activeness but you still have to check them weekly to see if it needs trimming.


Facts - History

Though named after the Land Down Under, the history of Australian Shepherds actually began in Europe. The breed originated from the Basque region of the Pyrenees Mountains which can be found between the countries of Spain and France. After they were brought to Australia, they were most likely crossbred with different types of Collies before they were again brought to another country, the United States.

The reason why the breed was name as such is because of its association with the Australian shepherds who came to the United States in the mid-1800s. When they reached the country, they were primarily trained by ranchers from the western parts of the United States to become herders of sheep and cattle between the summer and winter grazing grounds. They were also trained to manage livestock in farms and ranches.

After the Second World War, the Australian Shepherd’s history turned a new page. From sheep and cattle herders, the breed became a common face in rodeos and horse shows when Western horsemanship became popular in the United States. Aussies were even featured in television shows and movies because of their immense popularity.

Aside from the fame and the continuous herding, Aussies were also trained to be guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for deaf people, rescue dogs during emergencies and therapy dogs for emotionally and mentally disturbed people. Their affectionate nature has helped them become one of the best breeds in these fields and they have consistently gained recognition for their service.
