Owning and Australian Shepherd is not for everyone. They were developed first and foremost as a working breed. They instinctually herd people and objects, sometimes nipping at heels and trying to prevent motion. Aussies can be loving family pets, but they are also very protective of their territory and family members. Socialization, genetics, and training determine the extent of this trait. Australian Shepherds are among the most intelligent dog breeds and can pose a challenge for novice pet owners. Obedience training is a must as they can become willful at times. They require strenuous physical exercise on a regular basis and need a considerable amount of mental stimulation or they will become bored and can become destructive and disruptive. However, with proper training, adequate space, and committed owners, Australian Shepherds make wonderful companions. They are fun-loving, active, and playful. Aussies are loving and devoted family pets that can be great with children. Owning an Australian Shepherd is an enriching experience! The purchase price of a Rising Sun Australian Shepherd in includes a basic contract with health guarantee, all vaccinations, worming, eye exam, and registrations.
