History of the Australian Cattle Dog

Originally they were used for herding in the Australian Outback, and are very intelligent dogs that are easily bored by a backyard lifestyle.

Australian Cattle Dogs are very loyal and proactive, they’re always on the look out and would make excellent guard dogs.

Australian Dog Temperament:

Australian Cattle Dogs can be very aggressive and require firm training from the start, if you intend to keep them as a pet and not a working dog then it is probably best to avoid pups from working dogs as they may be a bit of a handful.
