Newsletter #004

Greetings Fellow Australian Shepherd Lovers, Newsletter

Now that the new year is in full swing we're adding even more features to

Make Your Aussie Famous!
Add Your Aussie's Picture to Our Website
in our "Reader's Aussies" Feature

Send us the best photos of your Aussie and tell us a little about your furry friend. Each page on will feature a different Aussie. We'd love to add a picture of your Aussie to the site. We're looking for your best shots - in focus, the higher the resolution the better. In addition to being added in the "Reader's Aussies" feature the best photos that fit our format will be chosen as one of our "Top Dogs". Those are the Aussies that appear on the banner at the top of each page. For more information on how to get your Aussie featured follow this link:

New Aussie Expert Articles

We are now accepting articles from experts on dog related topics. From information specific to Australian Shepherds to topics that are valuable for any dog breed we will be adding more and more Aussie Expert articles in the months to come. (We'll keep you posted here.) If you are an expert in any area that would be of interest to Australian Shepherd owners you can find more information about submitting your article here:

Speaking of Aussie Expert Articles...

The first article in this series comes to us from Lynn Whinery of Bonza Canine Education. Lynn provides clicker training classes in the Imperial Beach or San Diego county area and is a full member of APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers). Learn more about the basics of clicker dog training. We particularly like the positive focus of clicker training and positive reinforcement.

The NEW Aussie Shoppe is Now Open!

Now you can shop for Aussie products through! You can find books, calendars and DVDs about Aussies, dog training, etc. The Aussie Shoppe is powered by technology so you know your online purchases are safe and secure. When you make purchases through the Aussie Shoppe we receive a small commission. If you are interested in purchasing any of the products please go through our store or we don't get credited. This helps us pay the bills and keep growing. Thank you for your support, I really do appreciate it!

Have You Heard of Urban Mushing?

When I think of dog mushing I think of Alaskan Malamutes and Huskies bounding through the snow pulling sleds. Well, here is a whole new approach to dog mushing. The Dog Powered Scooter, invented and produced by Mark Schuette, is a fun and safe way to exercise your Aussie and enjoy urban mushing at your local park or bicycle path. Have a look and see what you think. If you try out the Dog Powered Scooter please send us your pictures or videos along with your review of this innovative exercise and recreational product.
