Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Alexandra Haverdink

My name is Alexandra Haverdink, and I own TreeSong Aussies (located in Holland, Michigan). I love how much information you provide on your site! I have referred many puppy people to you, because of the quality of your information. I just wanted to send you a photo of my boy Moulder (Ch. Northbay's Moonlit Treasure CD, RN). He is 6 years old (in this photo) and a Multi-Champion.

Exercise – The Cause of and Solution to (Most of) Your Problems

I'm going to let you in on a little secret here. A huge number of problem behaviors common to Aussies result from a few, easy to fix causes. The biggest one of these is not giving your dog enough exercise.

We've already touched on the fact that Aussies were bred to be working, herding dogs. So they need a lot of exercise. If they don't get the workout they are genetically programmed to need each and every day, they'll get bored and turn their energy towards other activities. Often those other activities involve destroying your furniture.

This is actually great news, because it means the solution to many of your problems is well within your grasp. All you have to do is up your dog's exercise levels and many of the problem behaviors associated with boredom will start to take care of themselves.

How much exercise does an Aussie need? It will differ from dog to dog, but you should be aiming for a minimum of one hour a day. This can be walking, or one of the other exercise options explained later in this book, or a mixture of various different exercises. If you're pressed for time, share the duty out with your family members or hire a dog walker. If none of these are an option and you're really pressed for time, use one of the high-intensity exercise methods explained in Chapter 7.

Dog Quote of the Week

I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.
