Aussie are all different. Some of very energetic and will require a lot of walking to not be destructive. Mine nt like that. She does not like the heat so we have only been taking short bathroom walks. As for favorite in household. I had an American Eskimo hey are "ONE" people dogs only. Aussie are not. They love there families very much. My Aussie prefers my 11 year old when she wants to play and she prefers me when she wants to nap.They are a breed Known for loving their family. I will say though they also have a very protective nature. Almost all aussies are leary of strangers but mine goes into protective mood. She does not want strange people coming near myself or my son and will nonstop park at them to get them away. She parks at all new friends that come over. She has never growled or showed teeth but she barks a lot. Again all Aussie's are protective of their families but some are way faster to accept strangers. I would suggest early socialization.

All Aussies must have long, daily exercise. If you don't exercise your Aussie, it can become destructive. Aussies without exercise will probably be unhappy. Our Aussie doesn't have a favorite person in our family. She loves everyone in our family the same! All Aussies are different though, but you shouldn't expect your Aussie to love one person in the family way more then the other person in the family. Aussies sure do LOVE their family!
