Despite the name, Australian Shephards originate from the United States rather than Australia. These dogs were made for working. More specifically, Aussies were herders. With that said, these dogs have a lot of energy and can pick up commands in no time. These traits make them a perfect fit for an active family, couple, or single person.
Australian Shepherd Characteristics
Aussies need to have proper socialization, so they develop into friendly and confident adults. With proper socialization, you can then achieve off-leash obedience. Many dog owners want off-leash obedience in their dogs. Your Australian Shephard will have an easy time burning off energy if they are trained in off-leash obedience. Commands such as come, stay, and strong heel are important for off-leash obedience. You can take your Aussie on a hike or run through the neighborhood with these commands.
It is essential to train your Aussie in the right way or complications may appear later on in adulthood. These are extremely intelligent dogs and could potentially take advantage of you.
