Riley is a 4-5 year old Australian cattle/shep dog mix. He is an active dog that needs a job, he really enjoys agility and can preform full courses easily. He is definitely a creature of habit and does best when on a normal routine of eating and exercise. I use a prong collar on him and he walks very nicely on leash and doesn't pull. He can go off leash but will run to where ever he thinks you're heading. As soon as he gets out of my car he makes a B-Line straight to the front door every time. He needs plenty of space to run and get out that energy. He is calm at night and just loves to be snuggled and pet. He loves anything that squeaks and makes noise. It takes him a little while to adjust to being left outside in new places but if someone stays outside with him, he gets comfortable quickly. He loves to entertain himself with plenty of toys. He has a basket at my house where he digs in and picks whatever he feels like playing with. He listens very well and has never taken off on me. He is completely house trained and has never chewed anything but his own toys and to my knowledge, he has never jumped on a single counter or table. When you say "leave it", he won't go near it and refocuses quickly. However, he takes a while to trust and needs a strong leader. He doesn't like strangers in his personal space and needs to smell and "get to know" dogs over a quick walk before allowing them to smell him. He does not like puppies and dogs who don't respect his boundaries. He gets along better with females (humans and dogs). Once he gets to know a dog, he loves to play. He gets along better with small dogs. Probably not a good idea to put in with cats due to his high prey drive. I've brought him to the barn and he tried to herd my horses. Once he is comfortable and trusts someone, he enjoys being a lap dog and loves being held like a baby. He LOVES car rides or golf cart rides. He would sleep in the car all day if I let him. He doesn't usually bark unless he needs something or if another dog is barking. Also, because he is an active dog, we are recommending he not go into a home with small children.
