Australian Shepherds (also called “Aussies”) are medium sized dogs that are known for being loving, energetic, and alert. They’re also very smart, which makes high on our list of easy to train dog breeds.

However, this breed it is not going to be fun to live with if it doesn’t get regular physical and mental exercise! A 10 minute walk around the neighborhood won’t cut it; Aussies need more than that.

Australian Shepherds are naturally protective, and they can be reserved with strangers. Aussies can live outdoors, but it is important for them emotionally to have a good amount of human contact.

  • Cardigan Welsh Corgi

Cardigan Welsh Corgis are a funny looking breed of dogs because of their big bodies and very short legs. If you want a dog that is more on the laid-back side, you would be happy with a Cardigan.

Although they are reserved with strangers, Cardigans are fun-loving dogs when they open up.  They’re also well-mannered at home, but it doesn’t take much to throw one into a barking fit. Also, be aware that many Welsh Corgis can be territorially aggressive toward unfamiliar dogs and cats.

Their legs may be short, but Cardigans need to vent their energy through exercise. If they don’t, they will get bored and potentially very destructive. A Cardigan is not a dog to get if it will be alone for extended periods of time.

  • Border Collie

Border Collies are medium-sized dogs that are full of intelligence and physical and mental energy. This is both good and bad.

Border Collies are easy to train and they are very obedient. However, like many other dogs, they can be destructive if they’re not given a daily physical and mental challenge. As long as it gets enough exercise, you’ll have a loyal and dependable dog.

A Collie is not a good choice if you have an apartment, unless perhaps someone will always be around to play with the dog and take it out to expend energy. Preferably, it will have free access to a yard.
