Australian Shepherd Training, Aggresssion, Depression, Socialization, and Health

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I'm certainly thankful for my Aussie, Levi, the Australian Shepherd community I've met through the website and our Facebook page, and you—our newsletter subscribers!

Our new articles this month cover a lot of ground including the important topic of socialization which, if done well, will help you avoid having fear aggression develop in your Aussie (which we cover in another article).

We also take a closer look at depression in dogs. Find out more about this condition, the symptoms to look out for, and what you can do to help your dog get through the blues.

Plus, there are training and health related articles including one about allowing your dog in bed. Some people love it, others hate it. We take a look at some of the pros and cons.

All the Best to You and Your Furry Friends,

~ Anton

This is Smokey, a male Australian Shepherd (AKC—Smok'em If You Got'em). At the time of photo he was 8 weeks old. He likes long hikes with daddy on our ranch, but sometimes he likes to ride piggyback. He loves our 60 acre ranch to roam around on. (Owner: Steven Firn, Photo: Rachel Warlow)
