Herding Instincts of the Australian Shepherd
Aussies are born with varying degrees of herding instinct and ability. Genetics & bloodlines play a large part on this instinct & ability. If you are interested in developing your dog's herding instinct, you will need to let him work livestock on a regular basis. Each Aussie will manifest this instinct at a different age. If you own sheep or cattle, the Aussie with instinct will quickly learn to help with the chores and can be a tremendous asset in handling the stock.
Whether you live in the country or city, herding clinics and instruction by stock dog trainers can help you and your dog learn the techniques of herding livestock. Stock dog trials provide opportunities to test your teamwork and skills.
