Australian Shepherds are kind, loving, and devoted to those they know. They are very loyal to their owners, and are rewarding dogs. They enjoy working, whether it is learning and practicing tricks, competing in dog agility, or engaging in any other physically and mentally involving activity. They require daily exercise and attention. An Aussie may go from being at rest to running at top speed for several laps around the house before returning to rest. Aussies do best with plenty of human companionship because of their strong desire to always be near their owners and for their tendency to form intense, devoted bonds with people. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
