Publisher's Summary

Written by respected Aussie breeder Kirsten Tardiff of Echolight Australian Shepherds, this audiobook truly is a "Complete Guide" in which even the most experienced Aussie owner will learn something new!

The Australian Shepherd is an intelligent, energetic, enthusiastic breed that was developed in the American west to herd livestock for farmers and ranchers. Today, while some still work on farms as their ancestors once did, others are a force to be reckoned with in competitive dog sports and are valued as loyal family companions.

Affectionately called “Aussies” by their devotees, this breed can seem over the top to some potential owners; but those that lead an active lifestyle and enjoy training their dog will find an apt companion and willing pupil in an Aussie. Their intelligence and willingness to please their owner is unmatched. This breed is typically reserved with strangers and makes a good watch dog.

In this audiobook, you will discover the history and unique characteristics of the Australian Shepherd, as well as how to choose a reputable breeder or rescue and where to find them. Use this guide to prepare your home for a new addition, navigate through your first day together, and train them to be a wonderful companion. Explore sections on nutrition, grooming, healthcare, and more to give your Aussie the very best quality of life.

Topics include:

  • Choosing an Australian Shepherd
  • Preparing Your Home for Your Australian Shepherd
  • Bringing Home Your Australian Shepherd
  • Housetraining
  • Socializing with People and Animals

  • Training Your Australian Shepherd

  • Dealing with Unwanted Behaviors

Whether you are new to the breed or are fortunate enough to have been loved by an Australian Shepherd before, this audiobook will be your guide to everything Aussie.
