Product Description

Aussies are loyal, friendly, affectionate, protective, active, brave, playful, sturdy and tireless.
They commonly were used to move huge herds of sheep and cattle between summer and winter grazing grounds. They especially excelled at managing livestock in tight quarters, such as alleys and chutes.

Size: Aussies stand from 18 to 23 inches at the shoulder and range in weight from 40 to about 65 pounds. The average weight for females is 47 pounds and for males, 57 pounds.

Personality: Aussies are highly intelligent, loyal, and thrive on human companionship. Aussies are at their best when they are engaged in interaction with a person, whether it be walking, running, or fetching; and are the perfect companion for an active family.

Temperament: The Australian Shepherd dog breed has a temperament and personality that has two distinct sides: one is that of a friendly family dog, and the other is that of a highly alert, and sometimes defensive, working dog.

Activity Requirements: Australian Shepherds need a lot of physical activity. They are a working breed, so they thrive on learning new tasks and engaging in those tasks as often as possible. Families who are active outdoors will benefit from the company of an Aussie. They are incredibly agile and enjoy games like fetch and catching a frisbee.

Behavioral Traits: Australian Shepherds crave human companionship and love being included in all family activity. Though they are medium in size, they require a lot of exercise and stimulation, and if they don't get it, can become destructive or develop separation anxiety. Their herding nature can cause Aussies to be chasers or nippers. They will chase birds, rabbits, cats, bikes, and even cars. Australian Shepherds should be closely supervised if not on a leash, or in a fenced yard, to avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Diet: Usually, a commercial diet is the best and most practical choice, as well as the cheapest. But, if you delight in cooking for your dog and can provide a well-balanced meal designed by a nutritionist, then homemade can be a great choice. For those who prefer a commercial diet dry, semi-moist, or canned food. Puppies should be fed three to four times a day therefore if you are currently feeding ¾ a cup of puppy food twice a day you should consider spacing it out by feeding ½ cup three times a day. 

Keeping this all in mind, general guidelines are as follows:
2 to 4 lb. 1/3 to 1/2 cups per day.
5 to 8 lb. 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. 
8 to 10 lb. adult = 1/2 to 3/4 cups per day. 
10 to 12 lb. adult = 3/4 to 1 cup per day.
13 to 16 lb. adult = 1 to 1 and 1/4 cups per day.

Trainability: Australian Shepherds can be trained to do just about any task put before them. A firm hand is not needed to train this breed; positive reinforcement works just fine. They are a people-pleasing breed and quickly learn behaviors that are consistently rewarded with praise, or a small treat. Aussies excel in simple obedience training, and once they have mastered the basics should be enrolled in an advanced course, or more appropriately, agility training.

History: The Australian Shepherd, often known simply as the "Aussie", is a medium-sized breed of dog that was, despite its name, developed on ranches in the Western United States during the 19th century. Australian Shepherds were entered into the American Kennel Club stud book in 1991, and they were fully recognized as members of the Herding Group in January of 1993.
