In 1998, I decided to find another Kelpie
for my agility pursuits. In 1999 Denny (Oatland
Australian Maid) was born. Over her career, Denny
achieved 18 titles, she has also represented Qld at Agility
Nationals, been awarded SEQ Agility Dog of the Year and most recently,
attained her 101st Masters Agility Qualifier and earned her retirement
It wasn't until 2002 that Kip (Oatland
Say Gday) who is my foundation bitch, came into my life. She
has had some lovely puppies, none of which have ever competed.
They are wonderful family pets and companions to owners both here in
Australia and overseas. Kip also competes in Agility. She
won the 2004 Open Agility Class at the Brisbane Royal and has
represented Qld at a Nationals in 2008 and now has 16 titles to her name.
In 2004, Ted (Luack
Son Ofindi) came to me from Luack Kennels in Townsville. Ted
is a Dual Registered Black & Tan dog that I have now put over Kip for
her third litter
(born 9th April). There have been many 'interesting' comments
made about this pairing but I am happy with the
lovely athletic puppies that will hopefully put
Keldapark on the performance map. I have kept one of these
puppies for the 2014 National Agility Titles to be held in Brisbane.
Unfortunately, I lost Ted to a car accident in July, 2010.
This litter created two
lovely kelpies: a black dog, Bingo (Keldapark Toucho Class), who is
absolutely magnificent and his sister, Top (Keldapark Gold Class) who
is a stunning red bitch who typifies the Kelpie breed and is a truly
beautiful example of what a Kelpie should look like.
My aim is to breed top quality Australian Kelpies for show,
performance and companionship while staying true to temperament and
type . Kelpies are an all-round performer and are
quite capable of excelling in all disciplines.
As a rule, I usually only breed a litter
every 12-24 months. This ensures that each litter receives all
the attention and stimulus they need to become well-adjusted family
members. I try to expose them to as many different sounds,
sights, smells and situations as possible. Kelpies are active,
loyal, trainable and versatile. Once you've had a Kelpie in your
life, you will find it hard to have any other breed.
Kelpies are not just a breed....
they're a lifestyle!
am also studying Veterinary Naturopathy and, having used natural
products for many years on my own dogs, I have developed the first
product in my own range of products:
The first product in
the range is the Canine Multi-Vitamin Mix (aka The Green Powder). I will soon be adding The Dog's Dinner
which is a frozen 'complete meal' that is simple and easy to
feed and The Vegie Mix, which is a frozen vegetable mix. I am now
working on a dog shampoo with products known to kill fleas,
clean skin and soften the coat.
have several products currently in the R&D stage. Once I
am happy with the product contents and efficacy, I will be
releasing information on these products through this web site.
I have seen first hand the
advantages of feeding an all natural diet with my own dogs, and
they have proven to me time and again the benefits of the
products I am producing and promoting.
