Size DOES Matter


For many years, as Australian Cattle Dogs were developed, there wasn't a written standard for the breed. When the first Australian Cattle Dogs standard was recorded, it called for the dogs to stand about 20 inches tall at the withers. Dogs that didn't measure up, or weren't able to withstand the grueling test of the Australian Outback, consisting of staggering heat, rigorous terrain, poisonous snakes, paralytic ticks, nerve damaging spiders and yes, the highly feared crocodiles, were culled by either man or nature. 

The appearance of the Australian Cattle Dog calls for a symmetrically built working dog with a combination of substance, power, balance, hard muscular condition, great agility, strength and endurance. Any tendency to grossness or weediness is a serious fault. Remember, there aren't any little cattle so yes... size DOES matter.

"There are 3 kinds of people...
Those who MAKE things happen, 
those who WATCH things happen, 
and those who WONDER what happened."

"If they are not bred to be GREAT they will never produce The GREAT." 
by W.C. McDonald
