Kelpies are one of the most common Australian working dogs. They are tough, intelligent, and obedient. Being bred for farm work, the Kelpie has extremely high energy levels and must be kept active constantly, perfect for working with livestock. As a family pet, Kelpie owners must keep their dog well exercised daily. The consequences of bringing a working dog into a city environment can cause many behavioural issues. Owners must be diligent in their exercise routines and keep their Kelpie active and occupied.
Bark Control Solution
Dogmaster Trainers recommend a static bark control collar with manual settings for any Kelpie. Being highly intelligent, over time they can understand how an auto rise output works, making this style of collar less effective. Collars with a manual adjustment allows you to go straight to the level that the dog responds to and keep it there.
Recommend Anti Bark collars: Dogtra YS300, Garmin Barklimiter Deluxe
