ARABANOO WORKING KELPIE STUD

We are a small stud dedicated to breeding Top Quality, All - Round, Versatile Kelpies.

 We expect our Kelpies to work all types of stock inc sheep / cattle / goats / pigs & poultry. They also compete in sheep & Cattle trials and are trained in Obedience, Agility, Herding and Trick demonstrations at public events.

Our Kelpies are confident, friendly and have an compliant attitude. They are breed for their natural ability to work all types of stock. They have inherited,wide calm paddock  ability with the strength to work in the yards as well

We Believe a well bred Kelpie should be able to think for itself during work, to problem solve, be able to work all areas of the property at the same time as working  as a team with their handlers.

At Arabanoo Stud, we are breeding working kelpies for pratical working situations, that with the right handler should all be capable of being top trial dogs as well. 

 Arabanoo Kelpies have been sold to sheep/cattle stations, professional muster's, Pig Hunters, Hobby farmers, Dog triallers and as Pet companion dogs. They are also handy at Agility, Obedience, Herding or Flyball dog sports. 

Our stud is based in the Darling Downs area of Queensland, Australia, an area that provides lots of oppurtinities for the dogs to work and play!

Hoppy got his name from breaking his hind leg as a 12wk old pup. His leg healed well and we started his training at 10mths old. At 12mths old he spent some time in Wilcannia, NSW mustering Feral Goats. After his work had finished, he returned and was going so well, we decided to keep in him in stud. He has amazing strength and has showed great ability on the cattle and pigs. On sheep he is very quiet but has the strength to move any stubborn sheep - He is a free backing yard dog as well.  A very trainable young dog, he is one of our best practical, Utility working dogs who Derek uses everyday on the farm.





Spinifex "Swag" ( wkc Rego 39260)

DOB 20/10/2000

(Joes Spike x Wootton Sue)

Swag was the first ever Kelpie in the stud. He has been my best mate thru work and travel. He has competed in Yard, utility, 3 sheep and cattle trials and has worked with me on the shearing sheds of Braidwood,NSW and helped me Jillaroo out in Dubbo, NSW. He has breed some perfect working Dogs. He has alwasy been a handy All round, Versatile dog. We also trained in Obedience and agility and he helps with dog aggression cases within my dog training business. Unfortunetly Swag has a injury in his spine, causing him athritis and pain so he was de-sexed to make his life more comfortable. He is semi - retired now ( although we haven't told him that yet!!)





 Darksupreme Buffy "Sky"  (wkc rego 45787) 


( Joes Tau x Avenpart Yashena)

Sky is an amazing paddock dog. She has a naturally wide cast with a quiet working nature. She keeps the right distance and reads her sheep making her perfect for 3-sheep trialling. But on cattle she has  bite and bark to force them and no fear to have a good ankle or nose bite if needed. She learns her job quickly and is handy for mustering as she will work well out of sight and all day without stopping. We can send her over the hills to collect the cattle and know she will deliver them to the yards before coming back for more! She has produced some very handy pups. A good all-round, versatile bitch, she competes in 3 sheep, utility, yard and cattle trials.


Kanika "Jess" ( wkc rego 49139)

DOB 21/8/06

(Gunna Ben II x Kanika Lucky)

Jess is the handiest dog we have. She was bought as a started dog and as her confidence grew so did her working ability. Whether it is in the paddock or in the yards, Jess can do it. With no fear and an attitude to please, no job is too hard for her. She has a good cast, backs ( goats & sheep), & has bite and force. Cattle, sheep, goats, poultry & pigs are what she works most days. She is a proven breeder with all her pups being handy workers too. Jess competes in 3-sheep, yard, utility and cattle trials. There is no better All-round, Versatile Kelpie as good as Jess! Watch Jess at her First Yard dog trial - Click Here, Enjoy Jess working Ducks at a pet expo - Click here
