Tucker is 4 yrs old, Australian Working line Kelpie ( as opposed to show kelpie - which is pretty different at this point). We do tricks at home, and he is a great frisbee catcher. He is enrolled in Nosework and Agility.
I have a great interest in the herding breeds, past, present and their future. They are my favorite group of dogs on the whole. I am planning a blog with my kelpie and will include pieces on herding dogs and the right and need to run free.
Has no interest in playing with other dogs. He wants to be with people. If they get in his face he considers it disrespectful and "reprimands" them. This is normal dog behavior. However, I don't have to bring him. I have other reasons for joining.
Living in Briarwood Queens in a 1 bedroom co op. Work for US Dept of Agriculture. Have an Australian Working Kelpie; they were developed from old working collies, just as border collies were, and are indispensible sheep dogs down under.
