Australian Kelpie

Australian Kelpie


Height: 17-23 inches

Weight: 25-45 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Herding Dogs

Overview
Kelpies are intense and independent. They need a strong, experienced trainer and early socialization and obedience training. Otherwise they tend to herd everything, including young children and other animals.

The kelpie likes hard exercise and wandering and is not very happy living in the city or with an owner who favors an armchair over hiking.

Appearance
The Australian kelpie is a solid, medium-size dog with a foxlike head. The weather-resistant outercoat is harsh and glossy; the undercoat is thick and soft.

The color is usually black but can be black and tan, red, red and tan, fawn, chocolate, or smoke blue.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Australian kelpie needs to be brushed and combed weekly. These dogs need an athlete's training schedule--exercise, exercise, exercise--or they may develop severe behavioral problems.

Origins
The Australian kelpie originated in the 1870s from the breeding of a Border collie and a black and tan random-bred female named Kelpie.

Special Alerts
The Australian kelpie is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners and does not adapt well to city or apartment life.
