Shel-Aussies are a unique designer dog breed with an equally distinct pedigree and appearance to match; these cuddly critters descend from two dogs breeds that both possess a lot of natural charm in their own right - the Shetland Sheepdog and the Australian Shepherd. Shel-Aussies can also result from a Shetland Sheepdog with a miniature Australian Shepherd, technically giving you a Mini Shel-Aussie, in case you were looking for a more compact version of these lovable dogs. Shel-Aussies are a very well mannered and even tempered breed regardless of their size, so you can try out a wide array of activities with these pups and they'll approach them with an open mind and a positive attitude.
Though both of the Shel-Aussie's parents were bred for the express purpose of helping around farms, the Shel-Aussie can learn to do more activities than herding sheep if you teach them. The activities we've listed in this article are just some of the things Shel-Aussies can do to subvert expectations and learn to become more well rounded dogs as a whole. We encourage you to keep searching for things that you can do with a Shel-Aussie that will help build up their agility, mental acuity, and confidence so that the both of you can form a richer bond and experience a more robust life together.
