The Australian Cobberdog has been developed to be a non shedding, allergy friendly dog who comes in three sizes - Miniature Medium and Standard.
Key features are a unique intuition demonstrated by his deep eye to eye connection with humans, a total lack of aggression, easy going ways, and a keen intellect in a mind which soaks up learning like a sponge.
He has a comical side too, with a goofy fun loving sense of humour. He loves to make you laugh! Because of his high intelligence, the Australian Cobberdog requires early training to occupy his mind and to avoid boredom. Athletic and graceful, he excels in dog sports, but is just as content to lay by your side as he is to go for a run. If a family member is sick this dog doesn't want to leave their side.
The Australian Cobberdog has been passionately developed with specific focus on sound body and sound intuitive mind plus of course the allergy-friendly, non shedding Fleece coat. Correct conformation (structure) is essential for this breed to fulfil its birthright of vibrant good health, and should never be compromised for the sake of colour or the 'cutesy' factor.
Australian Cobberdogs are the goofy clowns of the dog world, a trait that endears them to all who meet them. Their sensitive intuition, and unique seeking of eye contact with humans plus an innate love of training make them ideal for their purposes as Therapy and Assistance Dogs, Medical Dogs, and child friendly family companions.
Agile and athletic, they excel in dog sports such as Agility. The Cobberdog's beautiful non-doggy smelling, non-shedding and allergy friendly coat gains him easy access to places where other dogs are not welcome and is an added plus for those with allergies which are normally triggered by other dogs.
Cobberdogs are superb athletes with light footed graceful movements that make them appear to be floating above the ground They excel in Agility and other Dog Sports or in any endeavour where close communication with their humans is an asset.
They are eager to please, naturally seek connection with human eyes and minds and thrive in any situation where they are included as a true family member. Their sense of humour is without peer in the canine kingdom. The most frequent observation of people at their first encounter with an Australian Cobberdog is a jaw dropping "he doesn't just look AT you, he gazes deeply into your soul"
