So you want a Kelpie?
If you are thinking of buying a Kelpie pup, make sure of the following points. First ask yourself - do you want a constant companion or an ornament for your backyard? If the latter, don't buy a Kelpie. Is your yard fully fenced? If not, don't buy a dog until it is.
If you want a wonderful companion go shopping for your Kelpie. Deal only with responsible ANKC registered breeders. It is up to them to see that new Kelpie owners understand the individual charactheristics of their new chosen pup. contact the breed club and get a list of breeders with puppies for sale. Ask the breeder for diet and rearing advice, make sure you follow it.
Ensure the pup you buy is vaccinated and that he looks bright eyed with a healthy soft coat. Do not buy a pup under the age of 8 weeks.
Again, before you buy a Kelpie, please make sure you are prepared to give your dog the time and attention it deserves. Remember, that the cheapest purchase often ends up by being the most expensive in the long run: so be prepared to pay a fair price for your pup.
Learn about your dog's breed, care and training as the key to success is to know, love and train your dog - be responsible.
