    There is no such thing as a Mini Australian Shepherd, it is not and will never be registered under such a name by any kennel club worth their salt. There are no size varieties of Australian Shepherd and there will NEVER BE. "Mini Aussies" are either runts or mutts, nothing else. If they are to have ANY chance at being a registered breed, it's under the name "North American Shepherd".

    Please stop spreading the misconception that there are size varieties to Australian Shepherds.

    YAY! THE STANDARD ONE WON! And I just want you to know that mini Australian Shepherds actually aren't Australian Shepherds at all. I think that they are Pomeranians mixed with a Catahoula Hound. Just saying.

    My aussie was supposed to be a mini. He grew to 50 lbs and 21"

    I hate to tell you, but your Mini most likely isn't a pure bred. It's been mixed with something.

    All dogs are smart and all of them like to test limits, not just Australian shepherds like to do it. But the good news is that when they grow older, they would calm down a little better. I do agree with you that Australian shepherds are high-energy dogs, and they constantly need stimulation; most of them (working breeds) are less cuddly than those lap dogs, apparently.

    We love our mini. I tell people it takes about 6 mos of patience, training, and time to play with them. They are great in a crate when needed but we don't use the crate much any more. They shed like a cheap rug though. That is the greatest of the frustrations.

    I've never had trouble with biting, but occasionally she'll grab a child's pant leg if she doesn't like the running around. Can't blame a herder for trying.
    My girl will let me snuggle her a tiny bit, but she spends 90% of her time at my feet. Day and night. Quite the tripping hazard. lol

    You are so right about this beautiful but challenging dog being like a 2 year old. It was hard to talk to the camera for 11 minutes without interruption. That says it all. Aspen needed you to play with her. I would say that this breed of dog is ideal for a very athletic dog lover who will throw balls and frolic on the floor and get outdoors early in the morning etc. If you are a person who likes to read books or sit and chat with other people (including sitting still and vlogging), you will not be compatible with this breed. Try to throw a ball and run about outside with Aspen while you talk to the camera. Apen needs a lot of interaction ie her grabbing a face cloth means she wants to play with 'something' so where are the toys. If you share dog care duties with someone very athletic who enjoy s wrestling, frisbee etc and naturally chooses to do these kinds of sports for hours and hours every day, this dynamic breed of dog is a good choice for you. Can you recruit a friend who is super athletic to come over and play with your dog and take her to a park? Good look trying to sit for a while. This dog isn't going to watch TV. Her nipping is saying 'come on, let's play.' You are probably going to have years of 2 year old behaviour but it isn't testing the limits in Aspen's case, it's being herself. It's good that you shared this video but there is lots of information out there for people considering each type of breed. It's not a good idea to try to change a dog's temperament. It's best to choose a dog that suits your temperament. I would suggest that you let an Australian Shepherd trainer advise you on the # of hours you should spend doing certain types of athletic activities so you can make Aspen happy. She might be best suited to having another dog in her life. Also. Do you have a large property for her to run around and suitable toys for her?

    A tip for the vocal tired dog… Breeder for a few years.. This is a very friendly and loyal animals. If you get the whine and bark when there really tired sit down on the floor with the dog, let it cuddle or hug until its asleep then slowly move away. The dog will remain asleep mostly and will watch you walk away, don't leave the room until its back asleep and do your stuff. This will stop the noises and quiet your house. Once your asleep this behavior stops. So putting it to bed before you can quiet your home earlier.

    any tips for when I'm gone for 8 hours a day for school. I'm getting an Australian Shepherd puppy , but I don't know what to do when at school. I have a puppy pen so how could I keep her entertained.

    I know this an older video, but I just wanted to comment. Aussies have a ton of energy and love to work and play. If you have young kids at home all day and they want to play endless games of toss, tug or chase the puppy that just stole your sock, they will bond with you like no other. If you are going to leave them alone for 8 hours a day, you may want to consider another breed. When their activity and social needs are met, they are truly velcro dogs and will gladly spend their down time snuggled up. Actually, it's hard to keep them out of your lap. They are extremely smart, and will do any trick you care to teach, but their primary drive is not to please you like a golden. Rather, their drive is to play and work and play some more. I wouldn't trade mine for any of the dogs I've had in the past (Golden Retreivers, Labradors). More work with an Aussie, but also much more reward. Aspen is a beauty, btw.
