Aussalier Characteristics

The Aussalier is a new hybrid mix between either a toy or miniature Australian Shepherd and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. There can be several variations in the appearance of these little dogs, even within a single litter. Because they're a new breed, little is known about their health, but they retain the same loving attitude of both their parents and they tend to be both cute and quite stunning in looks.

  • Trainability Determined

Because the Aussalier breed is so new, there are no recognized standards regarding their size. They can range anywhere from 13-16 inches and weigh between 15-35 pounds. Their coats can take on a range of colors and textures like merle all within the same litter. If you love the idea of falling in love with a true one-of-a-kind pup, this is a great choice for you!
 
Because the Aussalier is a combination of two great companion breeds, these dogs have charming and loving personalities. The King Charles Spaniel tends to be quite relaxed and enjoy time on the couch, while the Australian Shepherd is one of the most high-energy dogs out there. This makes the Aussalier kind of the “perfect middle.” They love romping and playing but can settle down for couch snuggles, too.
 
Depending on your dog, the herding instinct may be more prevalent than other Aussaliers, and it's advised to give lots of early socialization and obedience training to ensure your Aussalier knows how to properly play with children. Otherwise, herding dogs are known to nip at the heels of those they're trying to herd, which likely won't be appreciated by children.
 
Unfortunately, many experts agree that small or mini dogs are at a higher risk for dental issues than large dogs. Just be sure to take your Aussalier to get regular checkups at the vet and ensure any dental disease is caught early.
 

How dog-friendly is Michigan?

With its beautiful lakeside beaches and pet-friendly attractions, Michigan rates as quite a friendly state for our four-legged friends! 


A study by animal safety site Pawsafe ranked Michigan as the 13th most pet-friendly state. Even better, the state ranked number three for dog-friendly attractions and activities. Pawsafe ranks states by evaluating the various dog parks, nature walks, local attractions, beaches, breweries, wineries, and shopping centers open to pets.


Safewise, another reputable site for animal safety, conducted a similar study in which Michigan was ranked as the 33rd most pet-friendly state. In the study, the state receives strong marks for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Both studies evaluated states for factors like availability of pet care and services, animal protection laws, and pet-friendly activities.
