A 10 wk old Black-Tri. He is a total handful, but learning the ropes quick. Has very strong herding sense as he is constantly trying to herd my kids. He is great and we are all in love.

Aussies and Kids

Thank you for your response. Nipping and biting was the problem with him herding. We have trained him not to nip or bite. Now he herds after birds and squirrels in the park when we play fetch. He's a beautiful, sweet dog.

Why on earth would you get an Aussie and NOT want it to herd. Yes,this is instinct. There is nothing wrong with him herding your kids as long as he doesn't bite. Maybe think about finding a place near you to let him be able to be an Aussie or get another breed of dog. They need different activities to keep them busy. This must be your first.

We also have a very energetic 6 mos. old standard Aussie. Austin always herds our kids when outside playing.

How are you training Bodie to not herd? Is it possible to train them not to herd since it is so instinctual?

We will greatly appreciate your comments.
