WOW! Your font is really bright! Could you change it please?

Miniature aussies are similar to the larger ones.They are active dogs.When your pup gets older,try putting her in flyball or agility.They are easily trained and LIKE to be doing something.
Aussies need a fair bit of excercise.

Here are a couple of links to check out.

Lisa gave good advice. Generally speaking, aussies are very active dogs. Which is the only reason that I don't have one. I love them, but I just don't have the energy to keep up with one, especially without a fenced yard for it to play in.

They are very bright and like to have something to do. If you have the time and are close enough to a place that offers agility, flyball, or herding, it would be perfect for him. I would spend as much time as you possibly can taking him for walks and playing with him. Games like fetch that require him to run would help him get out his energy. Because of their intelligence, you might want to try some doggy puzzle toys when he gets older. Aussies are like corgis... they need to keep their minds busy. A bored aussie will find something to do, and you likely won't like the results.

my dog is listed as a minature, he is smaller but still big lol...but I have had toys as well and they are all the same...high energy and very need to make sure you start training now and be consistent in their training...don't change the words you use and such...when pup was 6months old we started him on frisbees and courses to help burn off some of his energy...our backyard still looks like a training course lol cause all my dogs like it that way lol...good luck and congrats...aussies are amazing dogs
