User added info

This breed is known to be very playful and friendly, yet not as hyper as some of Corgis can be. Aussies are somewhat laid back and Augies inherit some of this good quality. They love people and seem especially fond of children. They also get along well with other dogs. Most will have prick ears, a softer fluffier coat, not quite as long in the body as a Corgi. The legs will be a little longer than the Corgi, but still short in comparison to the body. Can be any color with white markings anywhere on the body. Eyes can be any color. Nose should be black.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
