General Information On Australian Cattle Dogs

This dog is relatively easy to feed, only really requiring greater nutrition during its rapid growth period between 9 to 12 months of age. The breeder will be able to advise on the appropriate diet.

Dogs of great stamina and endurance, Australian Cattle Dogs are a picture of strength and agility, with intense watchful eyes. They are compact and symmetrical and should look well-muscled, with a double coat. The undercoat is smooth, short and dense; the outer coat is hard, straight and weather-resistant. They move freely and tirelessly with powerful drive from the hindquarters and are capable of quick and sudden actions.

The Australian Cattle Dog is the outcome of a deliberate breeding programme. Various dogs with specific abilities were crossbred over a period of 60 years. During the 1830´s a collie type dog was crossed with the native wild Dingo. The result was a dog, called Timmon´s Biters, that barked less and was better at driving the herds. In the 1840´s 2 blue-merle smooth coated collies were crossed with the Dingo, the best of the resulting litter

Australian Cattle Dogs are very intelligent and eager to work and learn, making them very easy to train. However, temperament changes through adolescence are common, especially a lack of self-confidence, and so owners must be consistent and reassuring at these times.

The skull should be broad and slightly curved between the ears, with a slight but definite stop. The lips should be tight and clean with strong jaws and a complete scissor bite. The eyes should be oval, medium-sized, alert, intelligent and dark brown in colour. The ears should be smaller rather than large and moderately pointed. The neck should be exceptionally strong and muscular, adjoining strong, sloping, well-laid back shoulders. The back should be strong and have a level topline. The front legs should be straight and strong, with rounded bone. The hindlegs should be broad, strong and muscular. The feet should be round with well-arched, short, strong toes and the tail set on low, following the slope of the croup and never carried over the back. The preferred colours for the show ring are blue, blue mottled or blue speckled with or without black, blue or tan markings and red speckle with or without dark red markings on the head.
