Since Aussies are a herding breed, they are typically regarded as intelligent, high energy, and very active. Which is typically true, however my boy Bandit didn't read the Australian Shepherd handbook. He is still extremely intelligent and easily trained because of his food motivation, however he has never been high energy and loves being a cuddling couch potato. He doesn't care to go on runs, he'd rather sit around and eat 20 times a day! Although his brain still needs to be kept busy with training sessions and interactive dog toys, etc. Not all Australian Shepherds are wild and super high energy, it truly depends on the dog! Overall they are my favorite breed for many reasons.
