Australian Shepherd > Do any Aussies have natural bobtails?
Clancy

Ball fixated!
 
 
Barked: Wed Mar 3, '10 2:33pm PST 
I've had Aussies for 20 years and they can be born with bobtails. It used to be about 50-50 but that may have changed due to breeders' preferences. Many good working stock dogs were born with bobtails and if they had back problems it didn't affect their ability to work stock!

Australian Shepherd > Is it normal for my aussie not to chew on things???
Clancy

Ball fixated!

My first Aussie JP wasn't much of a chewer. Clancy likes to chew, though. On a normal day, he will spend 30 minutes to an hour chewing a rubber bone or chew toy - 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there and be satisfied. I think it just depends on the dog. He also loves to play ball and my other one could take it or leave it.

Australian Shepherd > Aussie and tv

Clancy

Oh, yes, Clancy watches TV. And my first Aussie, JP, watched TV. My friends didn't believe me until they kept JP for me one weekend. There they were - all in the family room - when he got up and started barking. Their two goldens looked around like "What's going on? I don't know why he's barking, but maybe we should too!" And they all started. My friends nearly died laughing they said it was so funny. They never doubted my TV watching dog again!

Clancy knows every commercial. Comes flying into the room when he hears the Beneful one and barks at the dog and the dumb toy! I can never watch a dog show, a rodeo, jumping competition, etc. without earplugs but it's worth it!

Food & Nutrition > Ideas on a grain inclusive fish based kibble with protein higher than 22%?

Mazzy, Blue Buffalo also introduced a large breed fish and oatmeal formula. I know there is no chicken meal in it and I don't think there is any chicken fat or chicken flavor. If you like Blue but can't eat the chicken this might be a good alternative.

Food & Nutrition > When should stores get the new Blue formulas?
Clancy

Ball fixated!

This is in reply to Quincy. The protein % changed in Blue's Wilderness - dropping from 42% to 34%. They had to cut out some of the meat proteins to do this but then added two new flavors - salmon and duck. So now there are three Wilderness no grain formulas - Chicken, Duck and Salmon. If you want all three of the proteins, just buy the smaller bags and mix them smile

We are trying the duck right now and my guy really likes it!

Food & Nutrition > Blue - dog food brand, any good?

Clancy

Ball fixated!

Blue Buffalo is a great food. They make a chicken and brown rice puppy food and a lamb and brown rice puppy food. Real meat, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, lots of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals. My Aussie has been on the Adult lamb and rice for 5 years and looks terrific. I would recommend it (and have) to anyone!

Food & Nutrition > What are good foods for sensitive skin and sensitive stomach?

Blue Buffalo's fish & sweet potato works well for dogs with sensitive stomachs and sensitive skin. They also have a new fish based product called Longevity. Don't know much about it, but it might be an option.

Australian Shepherd > does your aussie like water or is the internet right????

Clancy loves the water! Well, not baths, but anything resembling a puddle smile When we go to the dog park, his favorite thing (next to the ball) is running down the hill and jumping in the creek--over and over. Oh, and he likes to go in our puppy puddle -- the kiddie swimming pool-- when it's really hot out!
