Australian Shepherds have high energy levels and active minds. This breed is one of the most intelligent dogs ranking high in obedience trainability. Heelers need plenty of mental and physical exercise, companionship and a job to do. At home they usually are happy, affectionate, and playful. The bond that this breed can create with its owner is very strong, resulting in never being too far from the owner`s side. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
