  1. Dog Breeds
    I am considering a new puppy and think the Australian Shepherd will make a great match for me. I am going to look at one tomorrow which is claimed to be a purebread but from the pictures of the sire and dam I seriously have my doubts. The sire does look like an Aussie, but the dam, not even...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone! I have two dogs, a male 8y Mini American Shepherd and a Neutered 3y full size Aussie neutered. A few months back the 3y Aussie snapped at the other dog for no apparent reason, it began with a stare and ended up in a fight in a matter of seconds, this happened twice and had never...

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here because I would like some advice on what dog to get. I had dogs growing up but I have never had one as an adult with kids of my own. When I was young we had what seamed like the perfect dog: Tally an Australian Shepard. She was sweet, wise, quiet, smart, loving, had...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a year and a half old, neutered male Australian shepherd. He is SUPER friendly with humans and dogs. He's that dog who wants to kiss everyone he meets and tries to catch peoples' eyes as they walk past. We have done some training (leashing for greetings, knee up, standing on the leash...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey everyone! I have decided to post on this site because we have had some recent concerns with our young, male Aussie. He is 7 months old and we have had him for about 3.5 months. He is a fantastic dog at home (minus some hyper moments which are expected, he is a puppy) with my fiance and I...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 1 1/2 (ish) year old Australian Sheppard, Harper, and I just moved into a new apartment a few weeks ago. As I expected, he tried to test his boundaries in the new space quite a bit which included trying to counter-surf. He never really tried this in our previous living environment, but...
  7. Dog Pictures and Videos
    Hi, I asked this before when I got Springer as a puppy. I'm still convinced he is Catahoula mixed with either some Aussie or some Heeler. He was a rescue pup found in a log in Kentucky. I've now got him in California and we run every day, he is super fast and loves me to death. He is 3...

    Lexi is my Aussie/Catahoula Leopard mix. She has had troubles with other dogs, and that is my problem. We got Lex from a shelter. She was a timid pup. She has a scar on her neck, is scared of storms, fireworks, and, surprisingly, tennis balls. Lexi is an angel with people, babies, and the...

    I figured I've posted enough around the site to finally do an introduction on myself! Hey there everyone! I'm Reggie. I'm an 18yo girl who's only ever lived in Wyoming. I've loved dogs for as long as I can remember, and I've had a couple that have taught me a lot about dog ownership. Although...

    Hi all, This is my new puppy Remy. He is a rescue, estimated at 3-4 months old by the vet. He was listed as a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, which the vet agrees with. However, he has some abnormalities and people have pointed to his facial coloring to indicate that he might be a...

    Hi everyone! Found this forum on the googles today and I wanted to stop by and say hi. My name is Jamaica and I have the sweetest little (well not so little at 65 pounds) Australian Shepherd, Chucko. He'll be 3 in September and he's the light and love of my life. I'll be exploring and getting...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi there! I have a question about transitioning an outdoor dog to being an indoor dog. I have an almost 4 year old Australian Shepherd who lived indoors for his first 10-12 months, then was moved to being outdoors full-time. Occasionally is brought inside for a night and does totally fine, never...
  13. General Dog Discussion
    I want to start with the fact that other than this one thing, my partner is exactly what I want in a relationship. He takes care of me, is responsible with his money, a hard worker, we have tons of fun and good times together. I have only been with him 7 months, but I honestly have never been...

    Hi everyone! So about three years ago I got a puggle. He's potty trained, can do some basic tricks and is a big 'lovepug', as we call him. We have about a year left in our apartment before we start looking to buy our first home and I'm debating whether it's time to add another (I'd rather train...
  17. Puppy Help
    Well I've posted once before on the site about puppy exercise, so here I go again haha! I have an almost 9 week old Australian Shepherd puppy, and I've been exercising her in about 45 minute periods throughout the day, usually totalling up to 5 hours each day. It feels like a lot, and I know...

    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and in general new to the canine community itself. Just two days ago I brought home a precious little 8 week old Black tri Aussie puppy, and aside from crate training and the sleepless nights, she's adjusting so well and doing so good in her new environment. The only...
  19. Dog Training and Behavior
    My family and I adopted an Australian Shepard today (July 3rd). She is a 1 year old female dog; her name is trixie. We have another dog named Ellie; she is a 12 year old Chihuahua mixed dog. At the kennel both dogs seemed to behave with each other. The adoption kennel wanted to make sure that...

    Hello everyone! This is my first post, and I am quite nervous, but really could use the advice! My husband and I just welcomed an Australian Shepherd puppy into our home. He is 12 weeks. We have had aussie's before, we are aware of the temperament, as well as the fact that they are herding dogs...
