I have alot of dogs but only a few big ones. I’ve always wanted an Australian Cattle Dog. I think they are my type because I have alot of spare time. My neighbor on the block just had a litter of them. I’d like to know if you think its a good type of dog for me?

They are awesome dogs!!!!
I have a part Blue Heeler (thats what we call Australian cattle Dog) and he has been a joy. He’s very easy to train and is just so loyal. You do need a large yard for them and be able to walk the at least 2 times a day. Also they can get protective. My friend has one and if he doesn’t know you he will go mental when you arrive. once my mate has introduced you he will be fine.
Oh and a lot of them get over weight because they love to eat so just watch that. If you already have children they are great with kids that they grow up with but they can take a little while to get use to young kids if you have them after the dog. But once they have bonded with anyone and accept them they are really the the best dogs.
Because they are so smart they are really great agility dogs. If you have the time get into that it’s great to bond with your dog like that.
Little info on them:
