  1. Possessive Australian cattle dog puppy

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello. I'm new here. I have a 6 month old blue heeler pup. As I'm sure a lot of other cattle dog owners do, we are having some trouble with strangers.

  3. Dexter's chasing cars in the most dangerous way possible, how can i stop it?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Dexter doesn't try to chase most cars. Usually he seems like he hasn't even noticed. But he will go after BIG trucks. Especially if theyre loud. Especially especially if they're oncoming (as opposed to moving in the same direction that we're walking). Which means that if he wasn't on the leash...

  8. Working/Stock Dogs?

    General Dog Discussion
    G'day guys! Just wondering if any of you out there work your dogs on stock (cattle, sheep, deer anything else)? It could be because they are working dogs, or maybe you just take your dogs to sheep herding trials/classes for fun? I am looking into getting a kelpie and they are born stock dogs...
