Care Tips2018-09-27T02:24:43+00:00

Toy and Mini Australian Shepherds require little grooming and are average shedders. You can brush their fur occasionally with a firm bristled brush and bathe them only when necessary. These dogs can easily sense what its master wants and are eager to please.

Dogs of this particular breed need daily exercise. They love taking walks with their owners, enjoy playing fetch, and chewing on an elk antler. Toy and Mini Australian Shepherds usually live for about 12 to 13 years.

Crate Training2018-09-27T02:31:34+00:00

We highly recommend crate training for your puppy. A crate is a safe place for a puppy or dog. Place the puppy in the crate at bedtime, before you go to work, or whenever you can’t watch them while indoors. It is advisable to get a crate that measures 30” x 19” x22” for a Toy Aussie. A Mini Aussie needs a crate that is at least 36″ x 23″ x 25″.

When you bring your new puppy home and the puppy is crying and won’t go to sleep, try moving the crate into your bedroom for the first several nights. This makes the puppy feel secure.

Do not make the crate a punishment.  This is your puppy’s safe place.
