Australian Shepherd Photo of the Week

Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

MaryAnne Hagglund

This is a simple photo of my happy Aussie blue-eyed, smiling girl named Iris. We had her for 11 and ½ years. She was a mean frisbee catcher until her hips weakened—her spirit was always tenacious—always looking for a job.

Exercise and Being Inside Too Long

As well as providing chew toys, chewing problems can be solved largely by making sure your dog is getting plenty of exercise and isn’t left alone inside for too long. If you’re out all day and your dog is home alone, you can consider leaving her in the back yard. However, some Aussies can’t be trusted to stay outside all day with no one around – they may bark or become aggressive towards anyone who comes onto the property.

An alternative is to purchase an outdoor kennel for your dog that gives her some space to move around, but keeps her enclosed. Just keep in mind the weather conditions where you live – you don’t want to leave your dog locked in a kennel in extreme heat or cold.

If you don’t have a fenced off back yard, consider putting a fence up – it’s well worth it in the long run to have an outdoor area for your dog to roam around in unsupervised. Of course, Aussies love to be with their families when they are home and I don’t recommend that they be left outside for extended periods. They prefer to be in your company and need the mental stimulation.
