A Texas Heeler sounds like an ideal dog. Just the word "heeler" makes it seem like your dog is one who will stay right by your side. Well, as a combination of an Australian Shepherd and Australian Cattle dog, this dog can be a very intelligent and amicable pet. As a dog with a lot of energy, they enjoy large fields and pastures over small apartments and they absolutely love to play games with you, their favorite person! Get started with one of these perfect activities.
Your Texas Heeler may not be a purebred dog who has a long history of herding but they do come from a long line of herding pups, which means they certainly have that trait too! Set up herding games for your Texas Heeler and they are sure to be the happiest pup on the block! Running games and getting used to strangers are also equally beneficial and things your dog will not only love but also something they need!
