  • The role of genetics and selection in breeding stock
  • Practical advice on loyalty, temperament, obedience, commands and developing control
  • Preparing the Kelpie for trialling
  • The Karrawarra stud and the increasing popularity of the working Kelpie in the US
  • Famous Kelpies of today and yesterday, as well as breeder profiles
  • A section on health and nutrition by Dr Alistair Webb – from general care to emergency treatment
  • Over 250 colour and black-and-white photographs, many of them rare and historic.
On virtually every page of this book Tony Parsons reveals his deep respect and affection for this great Australian dog. This major work will be an invaluable reference for Kelpie breeders, owners and enthusiasts throughout the world.
