This group is for Australian Shepherd lovers and their Aussies to get together and share some Aussie fun! Bring your wiggle-butt and have a good time! :-)
Aussie owners know that these energetic dogs love to run, play, and keep busy! What better way to meet the needs of your Aussie than with some like-minded people?
Approximately once a month meetups will cover a wide range of Aussie-friendly activities, including urban hiking along local Toronto nature trails, meeting for playdates at fenced in off leash dog parks and the occasional herding test/lesson. We also let members know about locally held Australian Shepherd conformation/agility/herding events to round out the calendar.
To participate in our meetups, your Aussie must be friendly and social with other dogs and people, both on and off leash, as this is a very social group. Unfortunately, reactive or anti-social dogs will be asked to leave and seek training with a qualified trainer before returning to the group...this is for the safety of the other dogs and people in the group, thanks for your understanding!
While this group is intended for Australian Shepherds, some other similar herding-type breeds such as: Miniature American Shepherds (formerly known as "mini-Aussies"), Collies, or Border Collies may also join as long as they are friendly with other dogs. Sorry, only Aussies and these exceptions at the meetups please, thanks!!
