Yep. I'd lable their activity level like a Border Collies. Only almost all Kelpies are bred for working purposes so you can't find one without a heavy herding instinct.

Kelpies are also pretty rare in the US.

LOL, well that's good! I was thinking if you were in the US....it'd be pretty hard to find a Kelpie.

Wow, two puppies.

Coming from experience, that's A LOT of work.

I only have one beautiful GSD and he's a handful.

Have you thought about house training? (Not easy! Takes lots of patience)

Some nipping problems they may have? (Not easy! ... at least for me)

I'm sure since you have 3 dogs, you know that puppies are A LOT of work.

But it's your decision and I wish you luck with it.

thx i dont think ill get them one at a time, ill get the GSP first, because, then i can train it up and i know kelpies are good at learning from other dogs.

i'll give my kelpe heaps to do, every day, i wanna take them everywhere with me. Like, ill shop at the markets instead of supermarkets, so ii can take my dogs. I am excited, but i have to go take buster for a walk now he knows he is going and he's getting excited.

You're right on the money there. Tons of work. Mrose, I'm glad you decided on one at a time.
