At what age do Australian Shepherds start slowing down?
Most Australian Shepherds should begin calming down at two years of age. At this point, they’re considered mature dogs who can better regulate their energy. That said, not all Aussies will tone it down at this age. It may take them reaching seniority for their energy to drop off.
What percentage of dogs live past 15?

Why do mini Aussies shake?
Sometimes some Australian Shepherds will have involuntary muscle tremors in the hindquarters. In a few cases the forequarters will also be involved. This may be a sign of hypomyelinogenesis, a condition in which myelin, the fatty insulation around the nerves, has failed to develop fully.
