Every Australian Shepherd breeder and business knows that Australian Shepherds were mainly bred in western Northern America in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many believe that they were originally used by shepherds in the Basque areas of Spain, who then emigrated to the West Coast of America through Australia.
Australian Shepherd breeders and businesses connected to Uptown offer loving families Australian Shepherd puppies that grow to be extremely loyal dogs that have a lot of energy and are good with children. They have a natural herding instinct, and therefore can tend to be bossy at times with other pets and humans, and can be stand-offish to strangers.
Ask your Australian Shepherd breeder or business and they'll tell you exactly how to groom your Australian Shepherd puppy. Australian Shepherds have double layered coats that need a lot of grooming and maintenance so that it doesn’t end up in knots. Brush your pup’s coat every day with a quality slicker brush and a long-toothed undercoat rake in the direction of the coat growth. Wash your Australian Shepherd with a good dog shampoo every 6-8 weeks.
