Popularity: Somewhat popular;

Trainability: Australian Cattle Dogs are playful, energetic and highly intelligent, but can get bored easily when it comes time to train them. While these dogs do take well to training, they are extremely curious and can easily get themselves into trouble if not kept entertained. Extremely trainable though. Suggested you have training experience because these dogs are excitable and can be somewhat aggressive;

Size/Weight: Medium sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 25-50 pounds;

Origin Location/Date: Originated in Australia early in the 19th century as a mix between the Dingo with the Blue Merle Collie. Used on farms to herd cattle;

Energy Level: High energy, playful and affectionate, requires exercise every day in the form of a good long walk, run or rigorous play time. Also requires mental stimulation;

Necessary Space: This dog requires lots of exercise. It will likely take all you can give it due to its breeding for running across large fields and great distances. It's tolerance for exercise is great, so you'll need to make sure you can keep up with it. Be warned though that this breed can be aggressive around other dogs it encounters. Due to the fairly substantial exercise requirements for this dog, it's best to keep them in larger, more spacious living situations such as a farm or a large house with a yard. Not particularly well suited for small apartments. Needs as much walking, running or playtime as you can handle per day;
