Will an Australian Shepherd Suit Me Living in an Apartment?


(Sweden)


Hi. We are a 3-person family living in Sweden, on regular weeks in an apartment suburb and in the countryside during weekends and holidays (~30%) of the time. We do have good access to dog parks and other open spaces where we can throw frisbee and play in the forest.

I don't really know if this is suitable or not for an Australian Shepherd; I've seen some Aussies who live in apartments and seem happy and on the other hand I've heard that they might become extremely destructive when living in that type of environment.

How adaptable is the Aussie in this sense?

Suit Living in Apt.

As long as you can give your Aussie lots of exercise, and more on the weekends, he/she should be OK. Also if you do not leave him/her alone for long periods of time in the apt. Always give your Aussie good early training.
