The Afollie is generally easy to train and well-behaved. However, ensuring good behavior comes along with a responsibility to properly exercise and stimulate this dog. The Afollie does best with a walk of at least 45-60 minutes daily along with other exercise opportunities. This breed excels in a home with a large backyard.
Afollies are often good natured and strive to get along with everyone. However, the Collie has origins based in being a herding breed, and this can easily be passed down. Afollies may try to herd other dogs, smaller pets, or small children. If this behavior is displayed in inappropriate settings, consistent redirection is needed.
