The Kelpie is designed to handle the rough conditions in Australia. He can handle the hot weather and be able to work non stop without needing much water.
The Kelpie is an extremely intelligent and an independent worker, who can solve problems and figure out what to do with the flocks all on his own.
The Kelpie's herding style resembles that of a Border Collie, keeping the sheep at bay with focused eye contact.
