Their coat colors are diverse, ranging from tricolor black to merle variations. Its coat composed of hair and undercoat deserves attention, because if not brushed frequently (at least once a week), it tends to shed in abundance around the house.
As a working dog, this shepherd is quite energetic, alert and independent, but he can also be insistent when he doesn't get what he wants, demanding a certain daily dedication from his human parents. They need to walk every day and they must be mentally challenged often so that they develop to their best abilities and not prove to be destructive. They can be quite pushy when they focus on one thing - be careful how you educate your pet. They can be quite sensitive to excessive scolding. They don't usually like disjointed and purposeless training, but they love chasing objects and playing this way - a great option to make an Aussie satisfied, tired and happy.
