These dogs have a wonderful character! They are very calm and balanced. With strangers they behave restrainedly, cautiously, but never show timidity or aggression. Agile, curious, enthusiastic and lively, they, of course, are not homebodies. However, sometimes they like to be domestic dogs, curling up at your feet or dozing off, resting your head on your lap. Australian Shepherds are very dedicated to the family and will never betray this friendship. In addition, they surprisingly quickly “absorb” all the information into themselves, and therefore it is quite easy to train them. Early activities with a puppy are welcome.
Each owner wants to see his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is a proper, complete and balanced diet. Even if you purchase the freshest and highest-quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of the food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special app that helps you evaluate how your pet’s diet meets its needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Caring for the health of your pet, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet rations, which allows you to fully utilize the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
