Hi, I have a year old Australian Shepherd. He's very sweet and lovable and for the most part seems like a happy guy. But, everything I've read about this breed is that they need a job. He gets a decent amount of exercise, but my boyfriend and I work full time so during the day he's home alone. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions about "jobs" we can give him around the house to keep him occupied. I'd love to have him to do the laundry and vacuum! Does anyone have any practical jobs we can give him? We live in a suburban area and unfortunately he can't be outside by himself without being on a leash.
