Clever Kelpies

Started working dogs for sheep and cattle

The Trainer

I'm Deb Maxwell; I train the dogs.

I use a combination of methods, learned from a variety of sources to train my dogs. I use a pack leader style, group feeding, negative reinforcement to teach recalls (same as the horse whisperer) and positive reinforcement (clicker training) to teach some actions, such as lie down. But the genetics of the dog is very important in how its style will pan out.

I am a registered veterinarian, but have spent most of my career as a sheep extension officer and I run a sheep stud, Bellaine Merinos, with my husband.

The DOgs

My dogs are all Kelpies.

All except one are registered with the Working Kelpie Council of Australia.

These dogs are all started, at one stage or another, but are not fully trained. 
No pups are available.

All dogs are “VWM”—vaccinated, wormed, and microchipped.

The Buyers

I expect that anyone purchasing my dogs will:

  • Provide good quality housing to keep them warm in winter and cool in summer.

  • Keep the dogs in good health and working condition.

  • Treat them kindly and as valued members of the family or staff.

  • Keep them safe, e.g. from being run over and getting poisoned.

If you cannot provide good quality, kind and caring living and working conditions for your dog, please do not enquire.
