    Yeah, it's a very nice dog, but it's 7 years old! And probably too big for us as well.

    I know, it's addictive isn't it?

    She'll probably be too big with the wolfhound in her. Nice looking dog, though.

    Yeah, I like him. But, again, we're looking for a puppy...and, more importantly, he's in QLD and not available for interstate adoption.
    Thanks for looking. No need to stop if you don't want to.

    their stubborn "oh, it's a cattle dog and therefore will constantly bite and herd me whenever I go near it, and it will be hyper" judgement?
    of the herding breeds - the ACD is the most laid back, least hyper. The most hyper and most likely to herd and even nip - is the border collie.

    But all good herding dogs must know to stop when told - so it's really down to the training.

    An ACD won't bite if you stand still. It's people who try to run away when the ACD has told them not to - that get nipped. And again, it's down to training.

    If your family has a problem with hyper dogs, stay away from working line herding breeds and some of the guard dog lines too.

    Personally the ACD and ACDx are my favourites but I'm biased.

    Just what they need to hear.

    How much exercise do you give yours daily? (I don't think I've asked before hahaha)

    We used to tease our GSD when we were out walking as a family by suddenly all walking off in different directions. He would frantically run from one to the other until we regrouped.

    I too have a soft spot for cattle dogs. We had a foster boy for a few months years ago who was a delight. He bought my then single-dog and dog-shy borzoi completely out of his shell. He was gentle and sweet. We called him Spud.




    He was adopted by a lady I worked with, and is still an awesome family dog. Go-anywhere and do-anything with the now teenage kids, or hang at home with mum. Never been a problem, just a happy easy going boy.
