Unfortunately Rosie did not get into pup this time!  
   
NOONBARRA JIM & NOONBARRA AMY Due: September 2016
NOONBARRA DAVE & NOONBARRA ROXIE Also Due in September 2016
Noonbarra Cassie and Noonbarra Honey are both due to come into season over the next 4-6 weeks  

All our Australian Kelpie puppies bred at the Noonbarra Kelpie Stud get the very best in individual attention, handling, socialising and training. Important too are diet and health issues such as regular worming at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks and 8 weeks of age, vaccinations including Parvo Virus, Distemper, Hepatitis and veterinary examination of each pup. Each puppy is also Microchipped. Some years we only breed a very small number of puppies and often we have months without any puppies, so bookings are extremely important. We still like to keep it as an all family run Stud.

The Bilson family has been involved in breeding & training Kelpies for just on 100 years and over many decades of breeding with three generations of our family, we have bred more than 2,500 Kelpies over nearly a century and this puts us in a unique position that very few breeders can lay claim to. Our Noonbarra Kelpie bloodlines are highly regarded throughout Australia and around the World and our dogs today trace directly back to the great Kalari Basil and Kalari Joker (with more infusions than any other bloodline in Australia) and then the lines trace directly further back to the legendary Coil and to all of the very first great Kelpies of the mid 1800's. All our Kelpie puppies are guaranteed 100% to work by 8 months of age. (WKC Guarantee plus health guarantee). Please book ahead as there is usually a waiting period to get one of our Noonbarra Kelpies. You must book with a $100 deposit if you are serious about getting one of our puppies. See information on deposits below. All our Kelpies are registered with the Working Kelpie Council of Australia.

KELPIE LITTER DUE

Noonbarra Dave X Noonbarra Roxie

Due September 2016

Expect all Red (brown) and Tan coloured puppies

Noonbarra Roxie is a lovely natured Kelpie. She is medium tall and quite a mellow Kelpie. Never too excitable but can be very fast when working. Sister to Rosie.

This is probably her last litter. Previous litters to Noonbarra Dave have been outstanding and her pups are already getting booked. She is a calm, laid back, gentle girl. She is very loyal and makes a fantastic companion. She never jumps up on people or causes problems. She loves to be at the house with us and is very well behaved. She is also an excellent dog in a kennel.

She is a easy going Kelpie and is a delight to train and handle. Good travelling dog, excellent house dog, heels nicely on a lead with no pulling or excitability. Very easy dog to work with.

She is good with children and easy to have around. We would describe her personality as being gentle, calm and quite mellow. She is not the type to jump all over you but instead will come up to you very gently to get a pat or a cuddle. She loves to have her chest rubbed. Her last litter produced lovely puppies.

She is not at all excitable like many Kelpies you see these days. She is very loyal and makes a fantastic companion. Travels perfectly in a car. Most of the time you would not even know she's there. She walks beautifully on a lead without any pulling and is a lovely dog to take out with you.

This litter is a lovely combination of two wonderful Kelpies. We expect pups similar to past litters. Very easy to train with a high level of intelligence. Adaptable to new environments, excellent interaction with families, confident, high trainability with a friendly, outgoing personality. Good dogs for poeople who do a lot of travelling, excellent for speciality training such as Agility competitions or perfect as loving family companions.

Roxie is very nice on sheep. She has a wonderful point of balance, good distance and break out, soft approach, moves sheep off fencelines, obedient. She goes back to many of the great  Kelpies, such as Glenlogie Lucky, Phils Creek Sam, Karrobar Gin, Capree Watch, Karrobar Moss, Rockybar Smart, Glendon Claude, Liscannor Pace and Avenpart Zondo (close up due to A.I.). Most of these are featured in the book: Kelpie Legends.

Dave has been a fantastic sire for us. He has produced outstanding pups for us and we are using him as a sire more and more. His dad is Noonbarra Boss who has already made his mark as a top level sire for us. Dave is very friendly, outgoing and happy. He loves people and enjoys trips in the car or sitting at a cafe in town. Dave was well behaved right from a little puppy and has a real zest for life. A nice, affectionate dog who loves to be around you. He can be fast and agile, or calm and settled. Qualities that we value highly.

Dave is a handsome Kelpie and often gets comments when we take him out. He has a sense of fun and loves to meet people. Dave is easy to train and likes to please. He is a very clever dog. Travels well and makes a first class companion. He draws attention wherever he goes. Well behaved at cafes and in car.

He works on sheep very nicely and can handle stubborn sheep. Lovely point of balance and will come in when needed. Good work taking sheep off rails, fences etc.

He is a good dog in the house and settles well. He has that loyal, faithful nature that we like in all our dogs and gets along with other dogs and animals.

    

PRICES FOR 8 WEEK OLD PUPPIES FROM THIS LITTER

These Kelpie Puppies ... $1100

All our pups are registered, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped. Puppy price include all vaccinations against serious dog diseases, Parvo/Distemper and Hepatitis. These puppies will also be Microchipped. They will be Vet checked, given regular worming, registration with W.K.C. in National Stud Book for Purebred Working Kelpies. You will also be given a special Noonbarra Dog folder with Kelpie information, pictures of your puppy's parents, grandparents, training tips etc.

We want each puppy to be the best possible match for their lifestyle and situation. Firstly we work out which litter would best suit and than we do a lot of evaluating of each individual puppy. So, for example, we would match a different dog to a retired couple who are home 24/7 than we would for a young bloke who is very active and needs a running partner or for someone doing dog sports or maybe someone needing a strong willed cattle worker compared to someone with three little kids looking for a soft natured affectionate family dog. Click here to read more on how we evaluate each puppy

All our pups get the best start to life here at the Noonbarra Stud. We think happy, healthy puppies are more likely to be easier to train, are better bonded to their owners and it helps to make them happy, well adjusted adults. We even have a basic puppy training program which includes socialising, exposure to noise, car travel and the beginnings of learning good manners and basic obedience. It also includes (very importantly) comprehensive day by day crate training sessions for each puppy. This is an incredible advantage for our customers. There is a page outlining this training on our website and much more detailed information in our book 'Kelpie Basics'. Click here for more about crate training.

Early socialising and handling of puppies makes it all so much easier for our customers. We often have a puppy or two in side on the lounge with us at night watching TV. Our mothers have the highest degree of nutrition when pregnant and after they whelp, so pups are very healthy and Mum is easily able to look after them with no stress.

We handle each puppy day by day, so they get used to human touch and we start to supplemental feed the puppies at 3 weeks of age. They also undergo a full worming program with a Veterinary supplied Fenbendazole based medication, all are carefully checked over by a Vet and each puppy is microchipped and vaccinated against major diseases, so you get the healthiest pup possible. They are well socialised right from the start and that makes them so much easier to handle and train for our customers. It also gives each puppy a strong connection to humans and makes them more affectionate and helps to build a better bond between you.

KELPIE LITTER DUE

Noonbarra Jim - Noonbarra Amy

Due September 2016

Amy is a lovely little, gentle natured Kelpie. We really like her soft nature and she is a very easy to have around the house. We think she is one of our prettiest young Kelpies. She has a lighter coloured coat, like Rosie and light tan markings. She is a very affectionate and loving dog and will often snuggle into you for a cuddle.

This will be Amy's first litter. Amy is great friends with Jim and it is an excellent combination. Both parents are gentle and kind natured. Both are smaller Kelpies so we should get medium to small offspring ... so perfect for customers wanting a smaller softer type of Kelpie.

However people seem to forget that softer natured dogs also tend to be less confident and more sensitive. Some can even be a bit submissive. Gentlier dogs often have a more dependent personality and are often less adaptable to new situations than more outgoing, bolder dogs. This is a generalisation of course and each litter and individual is different but it is something to consider when getting a new puppy.

Many people are better off with a dog more in the middle than at the very soft end or at the very extroverted end. We do our best to steer our customers to the type of dog that will best fit in with their situation and level of experience.

Noonbarra Jim is one of our outstanding sires and often requested by many of our customers. He is one of our calmest dogs and has a very laid back, easy going personality. Excellent house dog or travelling. Ideal at cafes, dog park etc. Likes to be with you. A very calm dog.

He has great breeding. His dad is Noonbarra Ben VIII and his mother is Noonbarra Tammy. Goes back to Noonbarra Jackaroo, Kamileroy Queen and Futura Ned.

His work on sheep is back to the wonderful old styles we started with. Mostly open paddock with beautiful point of balance, style and walk in. Jim is one of our favourite dogs.

The mix of these two parents should give us a slightly more gentle, calmer type of puppy. Almost certainly this litter will produce smaller Kelpies who are intelligent, easy to train and affectionate.

KELPIE  BASICS

Latest edition of this very popular manual designed for all Kelpie owners of every level from raw beginners through to experienced trainers. This practical Kelpie manual deals with everything involved in owning and training a Kelpie to ensure he grows up to be a well mannered, obedient dog.

The book is not about how to train Kelpies on sheep or cattle but this foundation training is important for all dogs! It deals with general obedience training, socialising your Kelpie, feeding, crating, toilet training, preventing problem behaviour in your Kelpie, dominance issues, understanding your Kelpie, Kelpies and car travel, bathing, digging holes, stealing food, walking your Kelpie on a lead, coming when called... and much more.

Over 100 pages.

KELPIE PUP PRICING

Prices listed here for Kelpie puppies are for 8 week old pups only.

We prefer our puppies to go to their new homes at 8 weeks. If you need us to hold a pup for you longer than the standard 8 weeks, we charge an additional $50 per week for pups at 9 weeks of age. We can only do this when we have enough time to be able to devote to the puppy. Between 8 and 12 weeks of age is the most important in a pups life. We do not like to hold puppies more than 9 weeks of age unless you are very experienced with young dogs and there is a very strong reason to hold the puppy.

These prices include the extra worm program. This does not include any crate training, socialising, car trips to city or general training. If you want this then you need a $100 basic puppy training package. No extra charge for basic training in week 9. So crate & general training and boarding for a puppy at 9 weeks is $150.
