What does Hypoallergenic Mean?
Do Australian Retrievers shed?
The Australian Retriever is a hybrid dog breed and consists of a mix between a Golden Retriever and an Australian Shepherd. They tend to be a combination of white, black or brown with individual dogs having different markings. Their coats are usually coarse and a bit wavy and they are moderate shedders. With both parent breeds being working dogs, the Australian Retriever has good herding instincts but they are friendly and loyal dogs and very easy to train. They aren’t big barkers and are very good with children. They enjoy swimming and are not sensitive to the weather so will do well in most climates.
Are Australian Retrievers good apartment dogs?
The Australian Retriever is a dog that constantly seeks human attention, care, affection, and kindness. This breed is ideal for living in a young family in a house with a yard. It is also perfect for a large family, including the elderly, who will be with the dog for the entire day. If you are an active family that often goes for walks, runs or spends time outdoors, you can safely get yourself a pet of this breed.

Groom your Australian Retriever
You will also need to regularly brush the teeth of your Australian Retriever—your vet can suggest suitable brands of toothpaste and methods suitable for your dog. Finally, don’t forget to check your dog’s ears for signs of infection or dirt buildup.
Along with performing exercises and training, you should check the paw pads of your Australian Retriever for any damage that may have occurred during a game, race or training session. In addition, you need to keep its claws trimmed; it is better to consult a veterinarian to determine the best way to do it correctly and cleanly.
