I have had two ACD's and they have been such wonderful pets that I don't think that I will ever feel right if my home is without one.  We are a multi-dog household and my Heelers are friendly with the other dogs, children in the house and with us.    One of my heelers was so friendly once that he sat down in the 'Pet me' position in front of a guest at my home, was patient but finally licked  him in a friendly gesture to say, Hey!  Pet ME!  Unfortunatly, the guest was not a dog person so this was a bit disconcerting. However, the Heeler just took this all in stride.

They are very active, highly intelligent, confident dogs. The Frisbee idea is a good one as are nice walks.  This is a friendly, happy fellow.  I am surprised to see the comments about nipping kids or not liking other dogs. That has not been my experience with either of my Blue Heelers.  In fact, when we take our current one out, particularly to the pet store for treats, people ask us if we don't adopt him, can they?  Well.....he still comes home with us.

The dog in this pic looks EXACTLY like mine must have as a pup, floppy ears and all. Does anyone know if that is a full PowderPuff or not? I rescued my pup at 2.5 yrs old so we don't know if he's pure. Any input is appreciated!

I recently adopted a 1 1/2 year old chug from a rescue shelter. He is the most stubborn dog I know. He knows what you are talking about but will only do it if he wants to. Since he is older can someone give some advise on what to do. He was house trained when I got him. So this was a big plus. It is just like having a stubborn toddler in the house. I know I kinda have him spoiled he only sleeps with me because he likes the electric blanket. I got him his own and he won't sleep in it. He thinks every time I shower he is suppose to jump in. He follows me all around the house and will not go lay down until I sit down. When I do sit down. He makes me hold him in my lap. Any tips on how I can break some of these behaviors.

    Have no fear, you are doing very well.  It sounds like your furry friend is training you quite well and that is all that is needed for a perfect relationship.  Seriously, nature of the pooch - just enjoy it and if a particular behavior bothers you - just say 'NO' and put him in his bed or in a crate.  Sounds like he loves you and all affection on his part though.

    Thank you. I love him so much I just want him to know when I say no I mean no! You are right I feel like he is training me than me training him. :).

    They are just sooo cute and adorable and lovable and a person has a tendency to laugh or hug when we know we should say 'NO'.  Puppy is very smart and he will understand 'NO'.  Us humans - we are very trainable by the furry things we love.

    This is an amazing, charismatic and energetic breed. Please know that these bundles of energy bond quickly, try extremely hard to please but do forget their manners from time to time. They need a firm, fair owner who will not stint on the love and affection that they thrive on. This breed is NOT for folks that are not active. GSP's do best when they can run off leash and sniff around in hunting mode. I can't imagine my life without my GSP who is funny, loyal, extremely smart, hard-headed athletic hunter/companion/best friend.
