The Australian Shepherd, often known simply as the "Aussie", is a mediumsized breed of dog that was, despite its name, developed on ranches in the United States during the 19th century. There is disagreement regarding the exact history of the breed prior to its arrival in the United States, and thus no official consensus on the origin of its name or association with Australia.

Watching an Australian Shepherd round up a flock of sheep is a beautiful sight. With sure and athletic movement, he directs the flock using nips, barks, and "eye," a penetrating stare that clearly says, "I'm in charge." Intelligent, hardworking, and versatile, the Aussie is a nononsense dog who thrives in a home where his brains and energy are put to good use. You don't have to keep a flock of sheep if you live with an Aussie — although it doesn't hurt — but you do have to keep him busy. He's a highenergy dog who doesn't know the meaning of couch potato and wouldn't approve of it if he did.
Because he's got the energy to burn, he needs plenty of exercises — a walk around the neighborhood won't cut it — and at least a small yard to help him work out his yayas. Lacking a job to do, he becomes bored, destructive, and loud. Or he might invent his own job: herding the kids, either yours or the neighbors; chasing cars or other animals; or taking your house apart. If you don't have the time or energy to train and exercise the Aussie on a daily basis, he's not the breed for you.
But if you're interested in competitive dog sports, the Aussie's the one. This agile, mediumsized dog with the docked or naturally bobbed tail is a top contender in all levels of obedience, agility, flyball, and herding tests. He's also successful in such canine careers as a guide dog, hearing dog, assistance dog, police dog, and search and rescue work. You can even teach an Aussie to help you with chores around the house, such as picking up dirty laundry off the floor and bringing it to you. You'll probably have to fold clean laundry yourself, though.
