The Australian Cattle Dog is a loyal, brave, hardworking, herding breed. One of the most intelligent breeds, it is not the kind of dog to lie around the living room all day or live happily in the backyard with only a 15-minute walk. It needs much more exercise than that and something to occupy its mind daily or it will become bored, leading to serious behavior problems. It needs action in its life and will do best with a job. This alert dog is excellent in the obedience ring and will excel in agility and herding trials. Can be obedience trained to a very high level. Firm training starting when the dog is a puppy and a lot of daily leadership, along with daily mental and physical exercise will produce a wonderful and happy pet. Protective, it makes an excellent guard dog. It is absolutely loyal and obedient to its master. It is sometimes suspicious of people and dogs it doesn’t know. It can be very dog aggressive if allowed to be pack leader, for its dominance level is high. Teach your Australian Cattle Dog that you are alpha and you will not tolerate him fighting with other dogs. Well balanced Cattle dogs are good and trustworthy with children. Some will nip at people's heels in an attempt to herd them; an owner needs to tell the dog this is not acceptable behavior. If you are adopting a pet, avoid working lines, as these dogs may be too energetic and intense for home life. Australian Cattle Dogs are very easy to train. Problems can and WILL arise with meek owners and/or owners who do not provide the proper amount and type of exercise. This breed does best with a job to do. If you do not have time to extensively work with and exercise your dog, or do not fully understand canine instincts and their need to have leadership, this is not the breed for you.

I did try to adopt one once. I named him Atom. He bounced around like one in a microwave.

He was difficult. it was not a good match.
I took him with me once to the grocery store in the brand new Acura(winter) and when I came back out to the car he DESTROYED EVERYTHING that was soft..Totally made mulch out of everything.
Dash, seats, doors, carpet, steering wheel, headliner...

They have to be constantly trained when they are young. After that, they are one of the best dogs you can have. You have to dominate them and make them know without a doubt that YOU are the Alpha. You can't let them have ANY control until they are trained. They sulk and act pissy until they finally give in and allow you your proper BOSS status... Once that is established they are like fine clay ready to be molded into a dream pet..

Your poor Acura... I bet you were mad as hell.

Think for yourself

...tell the person next to you ..You Love Them.
Knock and the door will be opened.

He was so beautiful and smart but too much for me. The Acura destruction was hard to process..I am not sure I even yelled or got angry, or sad..I was blank..It made my mind blubber.

I really am leaning toward another Rhodesian.

Maybe a male this time? Females are sure great too. My last one was.

Tough choice...


I like the Aussie Shep's bright blue eyes.

What does having 5 dogs do for my life extension now?
I also have a huge 2-year-old Maine Coon Cat whos over 4 feet long from nose to tail and still growing.  Chuckle

Damn that is a huge cat!

Is it mean? I hope not.   Chuckle

Please excuse the pun, but he's the biggest pussy! Chuckle

However, my dogs are Yorkies, so he's quite large when compared to them so he loves fucking with them. It's the funniest shit, though. He aggravates them and pounces on them in a playful way, and even though they're so pissed, as hard as they try, they can never catch him even though Yorkies are fast and light on their feet. They're not fast enough!

I’m into designer pets.. call me shallow..

Woof..

I searched for the pet thread so new peeps could post pics of theirs in it if they wanted...

I was going to post the link to the thread, but when I clicked on last page someone had quoted @Bubbles and  Scream1

I was eating my breakfast this morning when I clicked in that link.

I couldn’t reply, cause I was nearly throwing up.
