Can Australian Shepherds Deal With Time Alone?

by Cliff Catterall
(Montrose, CO)

I've had two Aussie/mutt mixes, which were great dogs. My recent old buddy died, and now I'm thinking about getting a pure-bred.

My mixes were semi laid back, and I'm thinking a pure bred might be a little more demanding.

1) are they fairly quiet, and

2), after they settle into my domain, can I leave them alone for a long afternoon without screwing them up?
