Australian Shepherd Herding Behavior
So I am getting an Aussie pup this summer and have never owned one before. I currently have a Springer and a cat and am worried about herding behavior with them or me. Is there a way I can train her to herd on command and not all the time? This way she isn't driving my other animals or me insane?
I plan on getting her into classes for herding eventually but I will be moving shortly after getting her so I need to get settled first. I have done my research and have thought hard and long about getting an Australian Shepherd.
I plan on walking her a lot and bringing her to dog parks and playing with her for a few hours a day outside. But I will be living in an apartment. She will be my service dog so eventually, when she is fully trained, she will go almost everywhere with me.
