As a Working Dog

Callicoma kelpies are not bred specifically to work. If you want a dog that will work hard, all day, every day, you should look to a kennel that breeds working type kelpies .However Callicoma kelpies are handy dogs to have around the farm, such as on a small holding or hobby farm. A number are also successfully competing in sheep trials and have gained titles.

If you get a chance to try some herding training with your Callicoma kelpie, please do - they just love it! Regular lessons are now run in Sydney, Brisbane and Uralla. I can put you in contact with the organisers if you wish to get started.
