Australian Shepherds, or “Aussies”, are bred for herding. They get their name, not because they are from Australia, but because they were used for herding Australian sheep. They have also been known to herd cattle, goats, chickens and ducks. These dogs are known as working dogs, and have a special ability to be trained. Although they make great family pets, they are at their best when they are working and active. Because Australian Shepherds have such strong instincts, they may at times “bump” their owners in an effort to herd them!
