American Bulldog

Many times when people decide that they want to get a dog, they are not sure as to what breed of dog they want. In fact, many people do not know what they want until they see the dogs, especially when it comes to Australian shepherds.

Because many people do not know much about Australian shepherd dogs when they get them, they are unsure of how they are around their families, especially around the children. In fact, many people that have families first go and learn about the breed to make sure that they are a good family dog. As expected, the Australian shepherd is a great dog for a single owner as well as being a family dog. They are especially great around children. In fact, the more that your Australian shepherd is around children, the better he/she will be. However, when you do have them around children it is very important that you teach both the child and dog what the ground rules are as to what is acceptable and unacceptable. Also, at no point should a baby or toddler be left alone with a dog, no matter what breed they are.

Another question that many people ask themselves before they get an Australian shepherd is if an Aussie can live in town. Yes, it is fine if you live in a town and want to get an Australian shepherd. In fact, unlike most other breeds of dogs, Australian shepherds do not need a lot of room to run or play in. However, what they do need a lot of is attention and socialization; they need to be treated like they are a member of the family. Also, they need to have the feeling that they are needed. Giving them a job is ideal; such as being the protector of the family. As long as they are treated well and part of the family, your Australian shepherd will be fine as a suburban pet.

Because many people do think about getting an Australian shepherd as their family pet, there are many things that they should know, especially if they are in the suburbs. Although most Australian shepherds are friendly dogs to all people, the breed itself is actually reserved and suspicious of strangers; that's why it is important to socialize them as puppies as soon as possible. Also, Australian shepherds are very easy going, and the puppies love to play. They are excellent companions for children to grow up with; they are devoted friends and guardians that are naturally protective, courageous, affectionate, as well as loyal. They are all the way around a great choice in dog for your family.
