Also known as Australian Shepherd Border Collie, Border Aussie and Australian Border Collie.
The Australian Shepherd Border Collie mix is a great hybrid that inherits numerous personality traits for both its Australian Shepherd and Border Collie parents.
Are Australian Borderlands difficult to care for?
The Border Collie Australian Shepherd mix is not the best choice for any first-time dog owner. They need an experienced owner who understands the mind of a working breed. They also need a lot of exercise to allow them to burn off all their energy, so they don’t adapt well to city life.
In general, the Border-Aussie mix is not as difficult to care for as it is time consuming. They require proper training from puppies to nip all their herding instincts in the bud.
Meet the incredibly focused Australian Shepherd
Nicknamed as Aussies, this sheepdog was previously called by other names, including New Mexico Shepherd, Spanish Shepherd, and California Shepherd. Believe it or not, this canine is NOT Australian at all!
If socialized and trained well, this dog is everything you could ask for in a companion dog. It is a quiet breed in general, not inclined to be very noisy, unless it is playing with others. They tend to be the “police” when they play! Both Border Collies and Australian Shepherds are bred to work with people, so they are often very people-oriented. This also makes them easier to train.
Super smart, these dogs are great fun to work with. You can teach them practically anything. As with any breed of dog, it’s important to remember that early socialization is essential to avoid future behavior problems.
The Border-Aussie is a family-oriented pet and needs to be around its own people. He is also one of those dogs that needs to be entertained, otherwise it will result in boredom and then the unpleasant consequences of house chewing. Mental stimulation is very important for this mixed breed; the Border Collie is the smartest dog breed after all. You didn’t think their offspring would turn out any different, did you?
Size of 6 month old Border Collie Aussie
5 year old female Aussie weighs between 20 to 40 pounds while male Aussies of the same age weigh 23 to 50 pounds. The owner must take care of the feeding schedule of his Aussie dog. Also, the owner should train good behaviors and good manners in his Aussie because this is the time for these dogs to grow and learn new things.
Australian 9-month-old males weigh between 28 and 65 pounds. Australians this age go out, run and get fit. It is the ideal time to teach your Aussie to be a polite dog.
