Blue Heeler pictures outdoors
Blue Heelers are in their element outdoors. This is a hardy breed and rain, wind or snow won’t bother them one bit.
Although originally bred for herding cattle, many Blue Heelers work as all purpose farm dogs, tending to sheep as well as cows.
Most Blue Heelers love nothing better than to be busy working, but at the end of a long day, relaxing among the leaves is a perfect way to unwind.
This gorgeous ‘portrait of a blue heeler’ was taken during the fall. She looks kind of ‘thoughtful’ don’t you think?
The colors in a Blue Heeler’s coat blend perfectly with nature.

Blue Heelers are very smart dogs and can easily be taught to fetch a ball or toy
It’s important to use modern positive reinforcement techniques when training your Blue Heeler. Whether you are teaching basic obedience, or playing around with fun tricks.
Not only is training fun, it is essential with this breed
Bored Blue Heelers get up to mischief, and can be destructive.
Agility is a brilliant way to keep your Australian Cattle Dog occupied and both physically and mentally stimulated.
Blue Heeler Markings
This is a breed where each dog is individually marked. Which means that every Blue Heeler is unique in appearance
We love the rich rust red throat on this gorgeous boy. And like many Heelers he has a sweet and slightly piratical eye patch.
Here’s another Blue Heeler with a dark patch over one eye
But this one has very cute ginger eyebrows.
Blue Heeler puppy pictures
All puppies are beautiful of course. But we think that Blue Heeler pups are especially gorgeous.
This little cutie is just five weeks old.
He won’t be ready to leave his Mom for several more weeks yet, but a good Blue Heeler breeder will be willing to send you plenty of pictures like this one. To keep you happy while you wait!
Like many breeds with upright ears, young puppies start off with folded or tipped over ears. These gradually become upright over the next few months.
This young Heeler pup’s ears are starting to unfold and stand up. Sometimes one ear will take longer to stand up than the other, resulting in a very cute look just like this puppy.
What could be nicer than an Australian Cattle Dog? Why two Australian Cattle Dogs of course!
Did you know that the Australian Cattle dogs with the reddish fur are sometimes referred to as Red Heelers?
The blue heeler picture above shows one of each. Aren’t they beautiful!
This blue heeler Mom is trying to relax, while her pup is keen to have a game.
And finally, a face that will truly melt your heart
Blue Heeler information
Blue heelers are true working dogs. They are not a perfect fit for every modern family. To own a Blue Heeler you really do need to have time and energy.
- Energy for long walks and/or training sessions
- And the time to exercise and train your dog.
This isn’t a dog that will be happy left home alone all day, while you work. With a ten minute walk around the block when you get home
These are great dogs for families that enjoy long hiking trips and like to take their dog along. Or for people that love to jog or run.
It’s also a great breed for those that want to get involved in a dogs sport such as ‘dock diving’, tracking, agility, or obedience training. Don’t forget to check out our detailed guide for more blue heeler breed information
