Hi everyone, I just adopted a 3 yr old blue heeler named Jenkins! I am very very exited and have already taking to him very very much. I don't have the whole picture on Jenkins past or previous owners, but to my knowledge he hasn't ever had an owner. Also, he has spent his life escaping from shelters/fosters and has never really bonded with someone. He doesn't have a single ounce of aggression in his body or barely makes a noise! Now, I'm in the first week of adoption and looking for pointers on how to gain his trust in me and let him know he is safe and sound! Also, since he is afraid of cars, loud noises, other dogs and such, he doesn't feel comfortable going on walks. Do you think it would be best to grow his trust before we start going on walks/hikes? Keep in mind his track record of escaping and running away, but I feel bad keeping him inside all day! Thank you so much for ANY and ALL pieces of advice!

    Glad to see a good home for Jenkins!
    Lots of love..lots of affection..overly praise his successes and
    Be loving in your discipline...
    They are independent and have their own mind..give them that and
    Then gently insist on your way..
    Cattle dogs are cautious by nature,like a Dingo or a coyote..its a
    Survival strategy..in time he will trust you..dont give up
    Itll be worth it..
    Truly they are the best dogs you'll ever have..smart loyal and courageous.
    Love ..love ...love...You will both find a best friend in each other.
    Hope that helps..my Buddy is turning 4 this march..Best Dog Ever!
    Good Luck!

'Prices range from approximately $150-300 for adults, $350-600 for pet quality puppies, and $700-1200 for show and breeding quality puppies.' Um no. I know this article is old but someone needs to update it. You MAY get an adult for $300 (maybe more at a reputable breeder). You can expect to pay $800-$1200 for pet quality puppies, and $2000-$3500 for show and breeding quality puppies.

my border is Bert. His story: too smart, wish he helped the kids with their homework!!!. Knows every toy by name, will get the one i ask for on the first command, and usually takes only 3 times for him to know the name of a new toy. He has close to 30 toys. Never yard trained, he just seemed to pick up on the boundary. We live in the city with a small yard. We run / walk a lot. We use plain terms and commands ie; when on a walk he leads the way. I can tell him which direction to go by just saying turn right, left, go straight. He knows his right from left including which paw to give which comes in handy when cleaning. This is a small sample. He constantly is learning and always seems to want to learn. I can't see ever getting a different breed.

I have a male blue heeler named Blu he is 8 months old. He is a good dog. He loves to play frisbee he jumps for the frisbee and catches it. He is kind of lazy and gets bored easily. Which leads to my problem. He is not good in the house. He will chew furniture, jump on things,bark and bite. We try to wear him out bike rides, frisbee, ball but he is not good once he gets in the house. I am wondering what other people do to correct this problem?

    For the chewing, make sure you have things around the house he is allowed to chew on. If you catch him chewing something hes not allowed to (furniture, clothes, etc.) Grab him by the scruff, give it a little shake, say no, and redirect him to something he is allowed to chew (a toy, bone, whatever). Tell him hes good and lavish him with praise when he chews on thenproper stuff. Heelers have a very strong chewing habit, you wont break it, you just have to give him acceptable options.

    The barking is easily taken care of with a shock collar. I have a 20 dollar one from amazon, its called a zacro. Put it on in situations you dont desire barking, and it beeps loudly each time the dog barks. After 2 beeps, there is a beep and an electric shock. My ACD learned in about 5 minutes not to bark and now doesnt need the collar at all. She just kind of makes a coughing noise now because that doesnt set off the collar.

    ACDs dont wind down easily, so when you go from outside to the house, when youre done playing, try just walking around calmly and ignoring him before you go in to let him calm down a little.

    Hope this helps

I have had sasha (my sheltie) for over 15 yrs. She is the love of my life. I lost her companion shadow a year ago. He was 13 yrs old. They were proud parents to 3 litters. I will terribly miss my sweet girl once she is gone. I am a retired registered nurse and 68 years old. I think shelties are the best breed of dog, smart, gentle, affectionate, loyal, and trustworthy. Would reccommend this breed over all others. Also think highly of golden retrievers. Both breeds are excellent family dogs.

I love that Sheltie in your photo, the one with the colorful Navajo scarf. That's because he was my Bounder. We put the scarf on him to dress him up for an agility trial. Of course we took it off for the actual runs. Bounder was a happy-go-lucky jock who loved running agility with me. He would spurt ahead across the finish line, then turn around and come back to me, howling his happiness. When we moved to the Philippines as teaching missionaries, he came with us. He passed on a couple years ago, and I miss him a lot. Shelties are such special friends to us, really special members of our family.

    He's a beauty, we love having Bounder posing for this page! His picture was taken at a dog show in Pomona, CA I believe. I'm so sorry for your loss, Sheltie's are one of my favorites and I'm sure Bounder will  be missed a lot.

    Clarice, Thanks for your reply to my post, and for your sympathy. You know how dear our dogs become to us. Bounder never ran agility in Pomona, CA. We lived in the Phoenix area, and only attended agility trials in Arizona.
  • Clarice Brough - 2016-06-07
    Well I'm still sorry for your loss, and I guess that's not Bounder, rather a darling look-a-like as the photo was taken at a dog show in Pomona.

i have a 2month old pure Queensland heeler name spike that needs a good home. I am not able to provide a warming home at this time due to being evicted because of having him. i received the puppy as a birthday present from my grandmother and i feel so bad that i cant provide for him.
