Australian Kelpie

So here is the first instalment of some of our favourite and best loved dog breeds, including some you may not have heard of. I'll be explaining their temperament and the pros and cons of owning that particular breed.


Starting with


A - Australian Kelpie
Also known as the Australian Cattle Dog, this beautiful breed of dog is not very well known in the UK but is very popular in Australian households.

In the UK, Kelpies are often used on farms as they are excellent working and herding dogs with superior intelligence and an unbelievable abundance of energy with the ability to keep working relentlessly from dawn until dusk, and longer if they could!

Australian Kelpies are beautiful looking dogs and a medium sized breed, alert, courageous, friendly, intelligent, loyal and loving. They require an energetic home with plenty of walks as well as mental stimulation and would not make a great pet for a sedentary family or apartment home.

In Australia Kelpies are overbred and dog kennels are overcrowded with this popular breed as often owners are unaware of how much stimulation they require to keep their energy levels under control. The crisis is similar to the UK's issue with the over breeding of Staffordshire Bull Terriers, where owners quickly realise they are much more hard work than originally thought.

Pros:
Very intelligent
Loving
Loyal
Friendly
Great with kids
Great with other dogs
Low grooming maintenance
Brilliant working/farm dogs

Cons:
Stubborn
Easily bored
Require plenty of physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis
Dominant

Some of them need our journalists to take after their written work style and utilize basic English not to emerge doubts in their teachers.
