Well, that's just a fancy name for a Australian Shepherd & Australian Cattle Dog mix they've been breeding for the ultimate ranch dog! I don't have a ranch though.
So far my biggest issue is my pup getting terrorized by my Siberian Lynx (cat) who is being the BIGGEST brat since I won't let him outside to eat a bird. Our rescue kitty somehow killed one and brought it inside as a thank you gift... Ugh! It's been game on ever since.
I plan on ranting a lot about various antics as well as figuring out how to keep us from going insane in bad weather! Last dog was a Siberian Husky but idk if my pup (Dallas) will handle the Winter? We live in a tiny cabin with the great outdoors for entertainment.
Oh! My god kids have a 6month old Border Collie / Lab mix (Nova) who is absolutely BONKERS! She is a sweetie though & I am helping train her. So far her issues are jumping & nipping but I am teaching her tricks -- she has fetch, shake & roll over so far & I am showing the boys how to properly interact with her. She is a good dog and wants a job but her mama has a newborn so it's tough! That's where Auntie comes in!
I would LOVE suggestions on how to leash train Dallas from a perspective of an Aussie owner! I used a head collar with my last pup because he was a puller and became reactive after getting mauled by a pit bull -- it was a mama on the loose looking for her pups and not appreciating my big wolf looking dog staring her down! :/ I do ride horses and would love to teach Dallas to come along and work cows & from my experience with cattle dogs they just follow you everywhere so I will be doing lots of research on recall since yeahhh my husky's recall was only about 90% and I have been dragged through snow in pursuit of duck! What is it with birds.... O____O
