Overview
A modern breed, the Queensland Heeler is also referred to as the Australian Cattle Dog, Blue Heeler, or Red Heeler. This breed was developed not for their appearance, but for their working abilities. They possess a silent work ethic, combined with stamina, to heard and drive cattle over Australia's rough and treacherous terrain.
Character
The Queensland Heeler is agile, athletic, robust, and muscular. This breed is superior and unmatched in herding duties. They are ever watchful, brave, always alert, and highly intelligent.

Does your Queensland Heeler bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Queensland Heeler is not recommended for inexperienced or first time dog owners. The Queensland Heeler was never intended to be solely a pet. They are extremely protective, loyal, and independent. They are not recommended for homes with small children due to their herding and guarding instincts and tendency to nip at the heels. They are excellent guard dogs of family, home, territory, and herd. Queensland Heeler's do not do well with dogs they do not know or with small household pets. They require a dominant owner.
Care
Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is required to remove loose and dead hair. Bathing should only be done when necessary. Ears should be checked often for debris and nails should be trimmed as needed. The Queensland Heeler is prone to such health problems as deafness, PRA, and hip dysplasia.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Queensland Heeler is a double coat breed. The outer coat lays flat, is hard, smooth, and straight. The under coat is dense, soft, and short. The coat is water resistant. The coat is longer and more profuse around the neck, under the body, behind the legs, and on the breeches. This Queensland Heeler breed sheds heavily once or twice a year.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are necessary. The Queensland Heeler breed has a tendency to be willful and is highly independent and intelligent. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. They excel in agility, herding, competitive obedience, performing tricks, guarding, and retrieving. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Queensland Heeler puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Queensland Heeler is not recommended for apartment living. This breed does best in a rural setting with a job to do. Activity is absolutely crucial to prevent boredom and destructive behavior. They require an inordinate amount of exercise. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Anonymous asked:
Are Queensland Heelers born with cropped tails?

The Queensland Heeler, a sub-breed of the Australian Cattle dog is not normally born with docked tails. Docking is done between 1 - 3 days old by a licensed veterinarian. The only breed of dog that resembles the Australian Cattle Dog or Queensland Heeler is the Stumpy Tailed Heeler, and they have a natural docked tail.

My Queensland Heeler is frightened easily. Noise bothers her, kids playing across the street bother her. Loud noises, thunder, lightening, etc. She will try to get in my lap. Why is she like this?

Depending on the age of your Queensland Heeler, I would say that she was not properly socialized and/or got frightened by a loud noise during the fear-stage of her development. What you need to do is contact a positive reinforcement trainer and start counter-conditioning training with her. Find the amount of space you need to be away from a loud noise that you can control for her to be comfortable. Start giving her treats for being calm and then move a foot a head. Continue to give her treats when she is calm and back up if she becomes frightened. But contacting the trainer so that he/she can be by your side when you do this is best. Good luck!

My Queensland Heeler seems to have an eye problem, but I'm not sure. I have a Queensland Heeler/Rottweiler mix that has a red eye around the part that should be white. It looks like blood, but she shows no signs of discomfort, loss of appetite, pain, or vision loss. Pupils and corneas are normal. What do you think is wrong with my dog?

It sounds like your dog's eyes are bloodshot. I would take her to the vet.

When a Queensland Heelers eyes become red they are usually upset about something. My Queenslands eyes would go blood red when she was mad at someone or wanting to bite somebody. As soon as they calm down the red with go pink then white again.

Red eyes on German Rottweilers is pretty common, it might just be something normal.

I have a new 3-year-old adopted Queensland Heeler. Can they be taught to play or fetch at this age?

Any dog can learn new tricks at any age; it just requires more patience, time, and effort. Yes, a 3-year-old adopted Queensland Heeler can be taught to play and fetch at this age.

I rescued a Shepherd/Queensland Heeler from a shelter - she is about a year old. How do I stop her from digging and how do I make her do her business in a certain spot and not all over the yard?

If you catch her doing it, stick her nose in it, point to it, and tell her "no" with a frown, in an assertive tone or put hot sauce around the area to prevent coming back.

Anonymous

Never ever stick their nose in it! Old wives tail! Very bad idea!
