Miniature Aussies are great pets for a variety of reasons. They are highly intelligent and easily trainable, so they can be taught to do tricks or perform basic commands. They are also very active and playful and love to run and play outdoors. They make great companions for children and other pets and are typically good with both. They require a fair amount of exercise and attention, but they are well worth the effort. With proper care and training, they will be happy and healthy members of the family for years to come.
