Australian Cattle Dog

(Australian Heeler) (Hall's Heeler) (Queensland Heeler) (Blue Heeler)  (ACD)

 The Australian Cattle Dog, also known as the Australian Heeler, Hall's Heeler, Queensland Heeler and the Blue Heeler, is a courageous, tireless, robust, compact working dog. The dog is agile, well-muscled, powerful and determined while working. The ACD has a smooth double coat with a short dense undercoat.  Puppies are born white because of a gene they inherited from the early Dalmatian crosses. Temperment 

The Australian Cattle Dog is a loyal, brave, hardworking, herding breed. One of the most intelligent breeds, they are not the kind of dog to lay around the living room all day or with only a 15 minute walk. They need much more exercise than that and something to occupy their mind daily or they will become bored, leading to behavior problems. They need action in their life and will do best with a job. This alert dog is excellent in the obedience ring and will excel in agility and herding trials. Can be obedience trained to a very high level. Firm training starting when the dog is a puppy and a lot of daily leadership, along with daily mental and physical exercise will produce a wonderful and happy pet. Protective, they make an excellent guard dog. It is absolutely loyal and obedient to its master. They are sometimes suspicious of people and dogs they don't know. They can be dog aggressive if allowed to be pack leader, for its dominance level is high. Teach your Australian Cattle Dog that you are alpha and you will not tolerate him fighting with other dogs. Well balanced Cattle dogs are good and trustworthy with children. Some will nip at people's heels in an attempt to herd them and an owner needs to tell the dog this is not acceptable behavior.  Australian Cattle Dogs are very easy to trainProblems can and WILL arise with meek owners, and or owners who do not provide the proper amount and type of exercise. This breed does best with a job to do. If you do not have time to extensively work with and exercise your dog, or do not fully understand canine instincts and their need to have leadership, this is not the breed for you.
