Yes, blue heeler dogs are good pets. They’re one of the most intelligent breeds so learn quickly and are great fun. They can solve an amazing variety of mental puzzles, and enjoy hunting for hidden treats. You’ll have endless fun trying to outwit them, and they’ll be proud to show you how clever they are. Life with a blue heeler will never be boring!
If you want a dog that will run and play outdoors, blue heelers are a great choice as they’ll never get tired. For that reason, they’re not suitable pets for apartment living but prefer a home with plenty of outdoor space, and a secure fence to stop them from exploring further afield.
