Australian Cattle Dog puppies are probably one of the most active and intelligent dogs we feature here at K9 Stud. Fully grown, these dogs do not do well lounging around the house or tied up outside. In order to stay happy and healthy, these pups need to be physically and mentally stimulated at all times. They were bred in Australia as cattle herders and truly go above and beyond this activity. They are incredibly agile, with tons of stamina so it is important to keep these dogs active. Australian Cattle Dogs are also incredibly gifted within the show ring, as they are highly trainable and excellent at timed trials and obedience skills.
Australian Cattle Dogs are quite compact physically, which adds to their agility and quickness. Their bodies are powerful and muscular. They have short, smooth coats which are most commonly blue, blue-speckled, blue-mottled or red-speckled.
