When it comes to toys for the Shepherd’s pet, Australia is a big winner
As the dog’s health continues to improve, Australia has become a popular destination for owners looking for toys for their dogs.
A new study has found that Australian Shepherd owners spend $18,000 on toys and accessories, including toys and chew toys.
The study, which was conducted by the Australian Shepherd Foundation, also found that more than $3,000 was spent on dog grooming and spay/neuter, including $2,500 for a pet collar and $2 and $1,000 for spay and neuter supplies.
The research found that the Australian shepherd owner spends $12,400 on toys, including the “toy” category.
While Australia has a reputation as a dog country, this is no longer true, according to the research.
The survey found that a significant number of Australian Shepherd dogs have been found in New Zealand, the United States, Europe and Asia.
The majority of dogs are “truly” loyal, which makes them great for a family, said the foundation’s Dr Julie Kish, who co-authored the study.
The most popular toy for Australian Shepherd is a plush dog toy called a “tractor”.
“There are many other toys and toys that are not toys that really represent the personality of the Australian Shepard,” Dr Kish said.
“So there are so many toys that we think might be good for the dog that we are not necessarily thinking about.”
“The Australian Shepherd does not need to know what a toy is to enjoy it.”
Ms Kish’s research found Australian Shepherd puppies are “extremely well socialised”, she said.
She said the Australian shepherds can be taught to be socialised, and are generally happy to be treated as a member of the family.
“I think the main reason for this is because the Australian Shepherds are such a family pet, they are not like other breeds where they are often separated and it can be quite a shock,” she said, adding that the dogs do not feel they are valued.
“And the family can also help them learn that.”
Ms Rau, who has three Australian Shepards, said she is “very much in favour” of a range of toys.
“There is something to be said for toys that bring joy to children, so that’s what we’ve got here,” she explained.
“It’s very simple to understand and I think there’s some really great things that we can do with toys and we can even do with things that are different from our dog, so we’re definitely not trying to replace the dogs.”
The survey also found a lot of the toys used by Australian Shepers were from the US.
“Some of them are pretty expensive and it’s a bit of a gamble,” Ms Rauer said.
A number of toys are “more of a novelty than a pet food”, she added.
“They’re not really intended for a dog to chew or to be able to go around and play with.”
She said some toys may be for people who are “not a huge fan of dogs”.
“Some people like the novelty of the toy, or the fact that it’s not quite the same as what they were used to,” Ms Kshal said.
The foundation’s research also found many Australian Shepherd puppy owners were concerned about the safety of the dogs in their homes.
Dr Kisch said that while dogs were “always” at risk from other dogs in the home, it was important to know that they could be protected if they were kept in a home that had good health and well-trained staff.
“We need to be mindful of that and to think about where the dog is,” Dr Rau said.
