  4. gday, from a sheep farm in Australia. yes you are right that kelpies are herding dogs, that their instinct is to chase, round up and, importantly, bring the food to their master. do you reckon we train farm dogs with titbits in our pockets? no. we bond with a dog, get them to see us as their trusted mate and protector. the dog knows we will keep them out of harm, so they are allowed to express themselves fully, on a sheep run (or a too run for recreation), but that we have the rules and limits that mean the job gets done, and the dog will not come to harm. suburban dogs need to mimic this task oriented process. they need to see a reason why they need to behave in a certain way. they need also feel as if they have made the choice to behave in the way the owner wants. its all about a mutually respectful, loving and serving relationship. enough of this talk of rewards!

  7. Hi Alyssa, I need a bit of advice. My Australian Working Kelpie Oreo is 1yr 4 months old, shes 75 pounds. She has issues with dragging me, my sister, and my dad around when we take her outside. She also doesnt do well with other dogs indoors except for my other dog. She doesn't exactly listen to my dad or my sister, she listens to me somewhat. She herds my 5 cats. She has issues with people she doesnt know, she will get her big growly bark and try to jump on them. Its mostly issues with men, facial hair, hats/hoodies, and dark skin. I found her on my porch in December last year and took her in, where I live is popular for dog dumping since I live on an indian reservation and there are no other towns for 5 miles. Any training tips would be very helpful! Sorry for the long paragraph! XD

  8. Kelpie? Nothing like kelpies I know. Also, try and train without food, kelpie training is based around them bonding, and completing tasks, not being trained like robots.

  9. Well done. My experience with kelpies is that they train really well without food treats. Dunno what you think.

  10. You don't need to use food to train a kelpie dog, just give it a pat. Kelpies are a very loyal dog and so much so they want you to be happy. If you are happy, they are happy. And they need exercise, lots of it as they are bred for working. Some working kelpies run up to 50 km (30 miles) so take your kelpie for at least an hour walk everyday. If you do this at the same time then your dog will soon know that he/she will get its energy release everyday and will look forward to it. Another way to give your dog exercise is to find a quiet lane, let your dog loose and drive off slowly, they will enjoy just following your car.

  11. Mine wants to go after EVERY 4 legged creature. I've never seen such prey drive. He's friendly with dogs. He doesn't give a shit about birds.

  12. I RESCUED A KELPIE AT 2, she is 4.5 now…. she is basically the perfect dog except she randomly nips dog close to her size and usually female …. but she can meet 20 straight dogs and not exhibit this behavior …. she is 99% good more than 10' from me… and better off leash … she can stay at other people's homes too with dogs and is fine…. also amazing with people and babies.   Certain dogs she is perfect with even if I am super close.   So any thoughts would be much appreciated.

  13. This dog seems too big and too calm to be a Kelpie. I have a rescue dog that I thought was a German Shepherd mix puppy but later identified as a 1.5 year old Kelpie. She is high strung and VERY concerned to predict my actions and vigilant about any wildlife in my yard. I don't mean this to argue against training suggestions. I just want to note that Kelpies are very demanding dogs, though thoroughly lovable. What saved me is having a much older and calmer dog as well. Kelpies are really affectionate and obedient dogs if you can manage to get their respect.
