The one thing to remember when training an Australian Shepherd is the high energy also means you need to keep his interest. Because of the high level of intelligence, this breed needs to be exercised, played with, or trained daily. You will hear that the Aussie can be a demanding dog, often wanting and expecting tremendous time from its master, which is true. While somewhat possessive of the master, proper socialization and training can take this potentially bad habit and turn it into something positive.
One of the best ways to be successful when it comes to training an Australian Shepherd is to work with a reward system rather than punishment. In other words, when the dog does as you command, you would reward the positive behavior with a treat or playtime with a favorite toy. This type of training helps to bond dog and master closer, while making for a happy dog. Unfortunately, using punishment will only break down trust between master and dog, which could lead to some serious behavioral issues.
