The Australian Shepherd is a small to medium sized dog that has a cheerful, hard working, and affectionate personality. Their high intelligence level is what makes them paw-sitively amazing at their job; herding livestock! Now of course, the Aussie is talented at many other things as well besides herding, such as obedience, agility courses, and being a down right fantastic companion dog. The only thing that can get them into trouble from time to time is their high energy level that must be met in order to ward off any lurking destructive tendencies. If you are an Aussie owner, you know how important energy burning activities are for this breed and that's why we have gathered together a few great ideas for how you and your beloved furr-iend can spend the day destruction free!
Although this is a small list of activities, the amount of things that you can do with your Australian Shepherd is endless! This breed absolutely loves to be on the move and whether it's hiking, biking, or playing fetch, the Aussie is definitely going to put their all into it. So let your imagination run wild and maybe teach your dog that trick you've been dreaming about, or perhaps even hit the streets and let that adorable face and sweet personality brings smiles to everyone you happen to meet. No matter what you decide to do, just be sure to give your Aussie plenty of chances to burn off all that stored up energy so that your dog can live a fulfilling and happy life.
