the wise men (shepherds)
this is a heated topic among the breeders of australian shepherds. first, it should be clarified that there is not a "standard" size australian shepherd. there are australian shepherds, miniature australian shepherds and even toy australian shepherds. since you did not ask about the toy version, i will limit my response to australian shepherds and miniature australian shepherds. the australian shepherd breed standards (akc and asca) do not have size restrictions but rather suggested ideals of between 18" -23". a dog smaller or larger than those stated sizes is still acceptable if it is structurally sound and capable of performing the work asked of it. those who oppose the promotion of miniatures feel that breeding a smaller size is unnecessary when a smaller dog can be found among the general population. they are concerned that the act of breeding selectively for size comes at the possible expense of health and structure. the final concern is that by breeding smaller dogs, the mini breeders are targeting urban pet owners who have little space (small yards, apartment dwellers) and misrepresenting the true nature of a herding dog. the miniature australian shepherds are still active dogs and although they may be physically smaller, they do require as much exercise and training as their larger counterparts. this breed still requires as much exercise, training and grooming care as an austrlian shepherd who is 23" tall. the mini breeders started breeding for smaller size over twenty years ago using australian shepherds as their basis. there are various stories as to why they opted to go in this direction, some hold water and some don't. regardless of anyone's opinion, the debate over mini's vs aussies comes down to one thing: freedom of choice. they have the same right to pursue a goal as the next person. these breeders made a choice and have followed through by producing a style of dog that consistently meets a standard they developed.
