The tough part of training an Aussie is controlling what they naturally do. That where the collar and long line come it.
You have to teach them control -distance - and aggression on command of something they are" hard wired" to do
I do not socialize my personal dogs. They bond very close to family and they need to pay attention only to me..My dogs will only partially obey my wife. I have enough people come over that they don't bite -but they don't want to be their friends either
