About Australian Kelpie
Country of Origin, History of the breed
Although the belief still
persists among many that the Australian Kelpie
is a cross between a Dingo and a Border Collie,
however, research shows the Kelpie ancestors
can be traced to the English North Country
Collies. Developed nearly 140 years ago, during
the 2nd half of 19th century, these dogs were
brought to Australia along with other Herding
dogs. Owing to their high stamina, ability
to tolerate heat and intelligence, they are
appreciated as working dogs all over the cattle
farms and ranches of Australia and North America.

Temperament of the Dog
Till date, the Australian Kelpie
is the most widely accepted sheepdog among ranchers
and farmers all over. The Australian Kelpie is a
highly intelligent breed that is energetic, loyal,
friendly, eager and is great at problem-solving.
Its lithe, compact and light-footed body is capable
of swift, smooth and effortless movement at a lightening
speed. Often a one-dog person, they usually get
along well with children they have grown up with.
Usually not aggressive by nature, they have exceptionally
sensitive in picking up sight, hearing and scent
Excellent herders, they have an
in-born instinct to herd sheep. They also make great
watchdogs owing to their alert and possessive nature,
and high ability to guard property – even
risking their lives. The Australian Kelpies are
pretty easy to train and their keen self help them
quickly respond to their owners' commands. Their
outstanding energy level enables them to work from
dawn to dusk (very similar to Australian Cattle
Dog) even when they are not physically fit. Give
them any kind of work to do, and they wont sit still
until its done. Their nature and drive to work makes
them impossible to become an apartment dweller.
A working dog by nature, the Australian
Kelpie needs great amount of exercise to keep them
busy. Boredom and lack of activities may lead to
unwanted behavioral problems. Although they are
easy to train, their extremely high level of energy
and drive to work makes them impossible to become
an apartment dweller. Daily long walks along with
good time spend running and playing is highly welcome.
Give them loads of work to do and they will stay
content for hours.
Suitable for apartment
The Australian Kelpie is definitely
not fit for small living spaces and apartments.
Being working dogs by nature they need vast spaces
where they can run and play around and freely do
the work alloted to them. Rural farms with a lot
of open meadows and yards is best suitable for such
a breed. An Australian Kelpie will be happy living
outdoors provided there is a resting shelter nearby.
Their coat will help them bear both hot and cold
The Australian Kelpie is fairly
easy to groom only needing an occasional brushing
and combing to maintain the glossiness of the pelt.
The brushing will also help remove the dead hair
and ticks. The Australian Kelpie has a weather-resistant
double coat that can bear both hot and cold weather
and the undercoat is short and dense. An medium
shedder, the dog needs bathing only when necessary.
The Australian Kelpie may suffer
from hereditary diseases like Progressive Retinal
Atrophy, Cerebellar Abiotrophy and Hip Dysplasia.
Other disorders that may ail the Australian Kelpie
are Ventricular Septal Defect, Cryptorchidism and
luxating patella. The dog should also be immunized
by vaccinations against diseases like rabies, parvovirus
