Aussies are typically a one person dog though they love their family. Unless they are socialized well they tend to be aloof with strangers. My aussie was a mama's boy but was also very good with my daughter. He was great with everyone but more aloof with men. He tolerated my soon to be ex husband ( wish I had listened to his instincts) but was never that close to him. Nick also liked to hang close to me but it had nothing to do with herding though he did do that with our cats he never did that with people.
