Aussiedor Characteristics

The Aussiedor is a unique hybrid mix between a Labrador Retriever and an Australian Shepherd. These two popular dog breeds combine to make a fantastic family companion, retaining all the best features from each parent. While a tad on the energetic side, these intelligent dogs respond well to obedience training and early socialization.

Also known as the Australian Sheprador, Aussie Sheprador, Aussie Lab, Sheprador, and just plain old Australian Shepherd Lab Mix, the Aussiedor comes with many titles. Standing about 22-25 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 40-80 pounds, the size of your Aussiedor depends greatly on the parents that created it. These dogs come in a multitude of coats, including tri-color, chocolate, and black, and are often not recommended for those with allergies, as they shed quite a lot.
 
Descending from the Labrador and the Australian Shepherd, the Aussiedor also loves to remain active and will do anything to please its human. These dogs excel at agility games, flyball, and obstacle courses. However, these energetic dogs have a tendency to turn destructive if their exercise needs are not met. Early obedience training and sufficient exercise are important to ensure your Aussiedor is well behaved and obedient while you're away.
 
The Aussiedor breed may have some of the hereditary health conditions that the Australian Shepherd and Labrador Retriever pass down. Because they’re a mix, they can avoid most issues, but might be vulnerable to issues like elbow dysplasia, hip dysplasia, and cataracts. Regular trips to the vet will help ensure a long and healthy life for your Aussiedor.
 

How dog-friendly is Minnesota?

Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!


We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.


The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.


Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively. 


Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.

Even though Minneapolis and St. Paul are known as the Twin Cities, they rank differently in terms of pet-friendliness. St. Paul also ranked well, but just a few spots lower than Minneapolis at the 33rd spot for overall pet-friendliness.
