My Aussie Bandit, is the life of our family. I'm convinced he is a reincarnated human. He isn't my first Aussie, but they are truly individual in nature (meaning no two are the same.) If you're new to sharing your life with an Aussie, I'd say welcome to the world of the "smart dog!" It's a constant struggle of who's training who lol!
I've been successful at eradicating almost all bad behavior. Well... there is one annoying game he loves to play. He steals (careful what you name them) something important to you, and lets you chase him around the house. He almost always wins this game lol! I love him regardless of tattered socks. He's my constant companion, and I cherish everyday that Bandit is in my life.
