Blue Heeler- Pet Or Working Dog?

Blue Heeler
I was concerned when I got my blue heeler, that she needed to be a working dog like her mama. I didn’t know whether she would make a good pet. I am happy to say she is the best damn dog I have ever had. Her combination of loyalty, intelligence, gentleness and work ethic, that becomes a play ethic if she isn’t herding, is an amazing mix for a great dog.

My heeler was not raised around children as my kids were grown so she is a bit unsure about kids. However, if you raise a heeler with small kids, or get one when your kids are older, that will not be the case. They are too intelligent and loyal, and will take to your kids like bee to honey. These dogs though will choose one master. They will have a closer attachment to their master, and show great affection. Blue Heelers are not shy, and are the first to be on the scene and know everything that is going on. They are notorious chewers, as many puppies are, but they can have an extended chew time.
