  1. Dog Grooming Forum
    My Australian Shepherd has lived in California with some family for about two years now. He is from a Working Aussie breeder in Alaska, and has really good health. He never really had hair loss before, so I checked for fleas, ticks, parasites, and there are none that I can visibly notice. He...
  2. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hey, I'm not new to dog ownership but I wasn't sure where else to post this. I would love to just gather as many Aussie owners and those with experience as possible for all my questions since I just got my first aussie a few months back and I adore him but I always like having that base for...

    I'm new to any kind of forum in the posting venue, but I needed a place where I could find people who cared enough about their dogs to seek out a community like this. I'm Abigail! I was born and raised in Louisville Kentucky and I'm pretending to be a homebody although I LOVE to travel and...

    Hey guys, I have a question and I know it might be difficult to answer but I thought I'd give it a try. I have sweet and beautiful 12.5 week old Australian shepherd/German shepherd female pup and I was curious to how her ears might be when she's older. When we first got her, her ears flopped to...
  5. Dog Food Forum
    My five month old Border Collie/Aussie Shepherd mix was being fed Science Diet Lamb and Rice puppy food since 8 weeks old. I went and bought a new bag of the food and the lady at the pet store said it had new labeling and was the same food as the previous food. The new bag now said "healthy...

    Hi Everyone! ARPH (Aussie Rescue & Placement Helpline) is transporting a beautiful, well-behaved 3 year old male black-tri from Georgia to New York this Saturday. PROBLEM: We have NO ONE to help in South Carolina LOL. (There's always a snag, right?) Not sure if this is the appropriate...

    I recently adopted a one year old female Australian Shepherd. She is, in nearly every respect, the perfect dog. My wife and I looked at many different breeds before adopting, and decided that an Aussie was a good dog for us due to their intelligence, temperament and size. We were aware of the...

    LOL not really. My 1 year old australian shepherd mix doesn't actually EAT the bed, but he's destroyed 6 (yes, six) of them. Here's the deal: - Wesley needs A LOT of physical exercise and mental stimulation. Destructive when bored. He's also in the adolescent stage: knows what's right/wrong...

    Hi all! Haven't posted in a while, but I do remember a lot of you guessing Wesley's breed when I first got him :) Most guesses were Border Collie Mixes. Just thought I'd share! Results (Wisdom Panel): 50% Australian Shepherd 25% Beauceron 25% Mystery Breed (Strongest possible match - Irish...
  12. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    What are the characteristics of a male and female border collie and australian shepherd? (after getting spayed and neutered)I do not know that much about how the male and female dog for these specific breeds behave differently and I really am curious! Is the male or female more coopertive...

    Australian Shepherd and what I wonder? Hello Dog Lovers! I know there are dog DNA tests available, I just thought some outside opinions would be both helpful and fun :) I adopted this sweet boy from an Aussie Shepherd rescue group four months ago. His name is Wesley, and his doctor estimated...

    We've had our Australian Shepherd puppy, Ruby, for about two months now and she's already growing so much! Our first picture from her breeder... Growing up at home...

    I know there are quite a few Aussie owners peeking around here, so I thought I would see what answers I can get. At what age do Aussies generally get their adult coat? I'm a first time Aussie parent and I've just been curious how long this fluffy stuff is going to stick around :). And is...

    Our three month old Australian Shepherd, Ruby, is generally doing really well with training and adjusting to living with us. Right now, though, we're struggling with a few things... First, we're trying to teach her the command "off" in an effort to keep her off certain pieces of furniture and...

    I've been working on clicker training my three month Aussie at home (she starts working with our trainer after her original puppy consultation in a few weeks) and she's catching on to everything super quick. At this point, she can sit, shake, lay down, put her head down, come and wait for a...

    We have an 11 week old Australian Shepherd that I'd love to get into some kind of sport in the future. I just heard about flyball the other day and discovered that there's a local team looking for members. I know that regular running isn't recommended until puppies are a little older to avoid...
  20. General Dog Forum
    My husband and I brought home our (now) 11 week old Aussie pup, Ruby, about three weeks ago. We are first time Aussie owners, but did quite a bit of research on the breed first, so I feel like we have a good understanding of what she needs. She's doing wonderful so far, taking to crate and...
