Introducing Your Aussie to Other Breeds

In some cases your Australian Shepherd will be fine with other Aussies, but react badly to particular other breeds. Again, this comes back to socialization.

The same rules apply if you want to bring another dog breed into your house as we covered above. Be vigilant about stopping fights before they start, and remove anything from the environment that could lead to conflict like food left on the ground or toys. Whenever your have more than one dog together you should always have them neutered unless you have definite plans to breed, regardless of the gender combination you have.

When you have to introduce your Aussie to another dog breed she particularly doesn't like, slow desensitization is the key. We covered how to do this at the end of Chapter 4. Introduce them slowly with lots of treats and praise, then gradually increase their exposure to each other, and build up to the point where they can play together without any problems.

Dog Quote of the Week

"Sometimes I read about someone saying with great authority that animals have no intentions and no feelings, and I wonder, 'Doesn't this guy have a dog?'"
