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.

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • 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 Washington?

Very!! Washington is consistently ranked quite high in lists of the most pet-friendly states – thanks to its pet-friendly restaurants, parks, and wonderful outdoors scene.


In fact, Safewise ranked Washington as the most pet-friendly state in the country. There are several important factors behind Washington’s rating but the strongest is the high number of pet-friendly rentals. Washington ranks second among all states with 55% of rentals accepting pets.

Is Seattle a good place for pet ownership?

WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. Their research looked at a variety of factors, with their primary focus on pet budget, health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendly activities.


In the study, Wallethub graded Seattle as the 17th most pet-friendly city. The city performed well for pet health and wellness, and outdoor pet-friendliness, ranking 18th and 11th respectively. Pet care is more expensive in Seattle, so the city ended up in 70th place for pet budget. The study also found Seattle to have the highest number of dog-friendly restaurants per capita.


A study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Seattle has the 20th highest number of dog parks per capita, with two dog parks per 100,000 residents.
