Maintenance


Border-Aussies have a coat that is easy to groom and maintain. An occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush is sufficient to assist the shedding process and keep the coat free of tangles and matting. Australian Shepherds should be bathed only as necessary. They are average shedders. Especially during shedding season extra care should be given to the soft, dense undercoat. The ears and coat, especially on the back of the neck, should be checked regularly for ticks.

Ideal Environment


The Border-Aussie requires large amounts of exercise and enjoys open area to run and play. Daily leash walks are required as well as frequent trips to the dog park. This breed is comfortable in an apartment as long as daily exercise is provided.

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.

We are interested in a border-aussie puppy but would prefer a puppy or dog under a year old to be able to train them ourselves for the most part. We would prefer a dog that will be medium-sized as an adult. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jack and Linda

Not sure how long ago this question was posted but there are border Aussies for $200 right now on puppy find in Missouri if you search austrailian shepherds and then click the miniature Australian shepherd link and then in the top right corner click location and choose Missouri then go to sort by birth date. They are 12 days old :)
