Should I Get An Aussie? HELP
I live in a suburb. I go to school during the day but my dad could let it outside while I'm gone in our fenced in yard. We have a Springer Spaniel who is very mellow and NOT dominant or aggressive at all but he is our baby so will he be jealous? He does really like other dogs so will he like living with one or be jealous?
Would a hour walk or run next to a bike once a day after school be enough for an Aussie. I can also play frisbee with it and take it swimming and to a dog park on the weekends. Would it go stir crazy and chew and dig? Are they crate trainable for when were not home?
Please help I really want an Aussie because of how smart they are but would it be too smart I am not afraid to discipline a dog so I can be dominant? Please help me because I want an Aussie because of their great personality and everything but don't want it to be too energetic and go stir crazy with bad behaviour.
So please let me know if you think an Aussie could adapt to my lifestyle because I have heard stories of Aussies that couldn't and had to be given away and I don't want that to happen.
