An Aussalier is a new hybrid breed made up of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Australian Shepherds. Unlike both parent breeds which have a unique set of traits, an Aussalier can be any mixture of them both or more like one kind than another. Therefore, when you decide to adopt an Aussalier, you will soon learn their nature and personality is unique instead of being a cookie cutter of a particular dog type.Aussaliers can enjoy their own company and play alone, or they can be anxious when you leave. Some also love to sprint for hours and enjoy the great outdoors, while others prefer the comfort and confinement of the family home. However, regardless of your pup’s personality, there’s no doubt that they will love these activities below.
Aussaliers love to please their owners as it’s in their nature. Given that Australian Shepherds are working dogs with a job to do, it’s not uncommon to come across an Aussalier that is the same. If you give them a job, such as obedience training, they will pick it up quickly – only too happy to do as you say. As a result, this one-hour activity in any weather is one you can enjoy. Unlike other breeds, Aussaliers are a delight to train. While the difficulty level is manageable, the price can be high, so make sure you dedicate plenty of time to training your dog. You need to take part in hour-long classes with your dog on a leash and a pocket full of treats, then carry on training at home. If you don’t continue training at home, you aren’t getting the most out of your dog.
Both Australian Shepherds and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can swim, with some being even better than others. If your pup has their water wings and loves going for a dip, then make sure it forms a significant part of your summertime fun. Take them out for trips to the pool, beach, river, or anywhere nearby that’s convenient. This free, effortless activity is one that only takes an hour out of your day but provides a lot of fun and stimulation. What’s more, when the sun is at its most intense, it’s also an excellent way to cool down. Grab a bag and pack a toy, towel, and a waste bag and head on your way!
Frisbee is a fun game for both humans and dogs. It’s an excellent way to pass the time, but it also helps to burn off energy relatively quickly as well. All you need is a frisbee, half an hour to spare, and a beautiful day, and you can be outside spending time with man’s best friend. However, even though Aussaliers are smart dogs that pick up things quickly, they may not immediately understand what a game of frisbee entails. As a result, you may need to invest time into making them familiar with it. Include a game of frisbee in your dog’s routine and reap the rewards.
Aussaliers love to chew, and if you don’t want it to be your pair of new shoes, then you need to invest in chew toys. Chew toys are inexpensive – well, more affordable than your shoes, so an investment in them should be a no-brainer. You could also class Aussaliers as tough chewers, so make sure the toys are hard rubber which is harder to penetrate.
Aussaliers have a lot of energy to burn off, and when you don’t cater to their needs, you may find they are destructive and bored. If you have time during the week, take them to a dog park. Such an environment is not only excellent for helping them to burn off energy but helps them to socialize with other dogs as well. Aussaliers are also more than happy to play with dogs of all sizes but tend to get on better with larger breeds.
If your pup is feeling a little ruff because you haven’t been paying them as much attention as you should, then it’s time to make a change! Try out these fun activities above and benefit from the knowledge that your pup is having the time of their life with you at their side.
