Being a mix of Australian Shepherd and the American Eskimo, the Australian Eskimo is a medium-sized dog with a lot of energy and built-in herding and guarding instincts. They were both bred to be farm and family dogs, helping out with the flock while still being a wonderful lap dog as well. However, they are also very intelligent and athletic with a loving personality that makes them easy to train. No matter what you want your Australian Eskimo to do, they will probably do it, but make sure it is something you will both enjoy.
All dogs need to get some type of vigorous activity every day and so do humans, so getting out there with your pooch is not only good for them, but it is good for you too. Whether you're going for a jog, taking a hike, or going to the park, bring your dog along with you and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.
