Many people think that getting an Australian Shepherd is an easy choice to make. However, when thinking about getting an Aussie there are many other things that must be considered as well.

One of the biggest things to consider when getting an Australian Shepherd is whether or not you want a male or female. Most often when people decide that they want to get an Australian shepherd they already have their minds set on either a male or female. In fact, most people will specifically ask for either males or females. It is not very often that people are not sure of whether they want a male or female Australian Shepherd.

Besides the fact that the male and female Australian shepherds look a lot alike, there are many things that also separate themselves from one another. In fact, the main and most important thing that makes them different are the sex of one another. The female, of course, is able to have offspring, where the male is not; the male is only able to impregnate the female. In fact, the female Australian shepherd will go into season every 6 months (like other breeds of dogs).

Another difference between the male and female Australian shepherd is the body size. Like always, the female is a bit smaller than the male. The female Australian shepherd is usually about 18-21 inches at the shoulders and weighs between 35-50 pounds. The male Australian shepherds are a bit bigger than the female. In fact, the average height of the male is around 20-23 inches at the shoulders, and weighs between 50-65 pounds.

Besides the obvious differences between the male and female, there are many other things that are different. In fact, the female does not have the density or thickness as well as length of the coat as the male. Another difference between a female and male is that the female has an easier personality to deal with as well as them being generally more sensitive and laid back whereas the males are more highly strung and difficult.
