I got my first Australian Shepherd, Lily, when I was ready to start a new agility dog. I love my Cocker Spaniels, but was also growing fond of the Aussies my obedience and agility friends had. Lily was so much fun, and we all know you can't have just one! Through this funny, athletic, super intelligent breed, we also started showing in conformation, rally, and have dabbled in herding, which is the coolest thing to do with your Aussie! Their smarts keep you on your toes and their sense of humor keeps you laughing.
