At what age do blue heelers calm down?

Blue heelers calm down at the age of 2 years. Typically, they’re emotionally mature by the time they’re 3 or 4 years old.

Keep in mind that even after a blue heeler calms down, it will still have tons of energy and need lots of exercise.

If you don’t provide enough exercise for your blue heeler (at least 1 hour a day) it will become agitated and destructive in the home.

At times when you want your blue heeler to be calm and quiet, proper training will help him to understand what’s required.

Ensure he can obey commands such as ‘come’, ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘relax’. These will help set clear boundaries between playtime and quiet time. Blue heelers are smart and independent dogs, so the fact that he’ll do what you ask is a sign of the close bond he has with you.
