Aussies were originally bred to be an adaptable and versatile herding dog, a dog that can work in the fields from dawn 'til dusk and guard the homestead at night. Today Aussies are still used extensively on working farms, feedlots, and ranches. Many Aussie owners enjoy training and trialing in stockdog events.
