Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog Facts


The Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog is an older breed than the Australian Cattle Dog. They are actually the predecessor to the Cattle Dog and are recognized as a true and separate breed…..Not a variety. This breed IS recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club and is a part of the Herding Group.

The Stumpy and the ACD are truly unique, but they are not for the dog for everyone. Before you decide to buy a Stumpy or a Cattle Dog, ask yourself these four questions:

1) Do I have the time to daily train, exercise, and play with my dog?

2)Do I understand that this dog needs mental stimulation such as
obedience training, and am I prepared to undertake this training with my dog….in ANY kind of weather?

3)Do I have the room and facilities to make sure this dog is comfortable?

4) Am I prepared to love and be responsible for the same dog for its entire lifetime?

If you answered yes to these questions then you might be ready for a Cattle Dog or a Stumper.
