All our Australian Kelpie puppies bred at the Noonbarra Kelpie Stud get the very best in individual attention, handling, socialising and training. Important too are diet and health issues such as regular worming at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks and 8 weeks of age, vaccinations including Parvo Virus, Distemper, Hepatitis and veterinary examination of each pup. Each puppy is also Microchipped. Some years we only breed a very small number of puppies and often we have months without any puppies, so bookings are extremely important. We still like to keep it as an all family run Stud.
The Bilson family has been involved in breeding & training Kelpies for just over 100 years and over many decades of breeding with three generations of our family, we have bred thousands of high class Kelpies over the last century and this puts us in a unique position that very few breeders can lay claim to. Our Noonbarra Kelpie bloodlines are highly regarded throughout Australia and around the World and our dogs today trace strongly back to the great Kalari Basil and Kalari Joker (with more infusions than any other bloodline in Australia) and then the lines trace directly further back to the legendary Coil and to all of the very first great Kelpies of the mid 1800's. All our Kelpie puppies are guaranteed 100% to work by 8 months of age. (WKC Guarantee plus health guarantee). Please always book ahead as there is usually a waiting period to get one of our Noonbarra Kelpies. You must book with a $150 deposit if you are serious about getting one of our puppies. See information on deposits below. All our Kelpies are registered with the Working Kelpie Council of Australia.

This is a wonderful combination of two lovely parents. We like it so much we have repeated this mating because of how good pups were last time. This upcoming litter is already getting a few bookings.
Jillaroo is a very pretty, beautiful natured young Kelpie. This is her third litter and she has been an incredibly good mum.
She's an extremely clever dog and learns very quickly. She has a wonderful personality that is a combination of gentleness and friendliness. We love her to bits. She's sociable and happy and loves to play but she's also very soft and sweet and settles well. Rare to get all that in one dog.
Jillaroo is by Noonbarra Jim, and most customers know the lovely gentle pups he produces. Her mum is Noonbarra Roobie, owned by our friend, Dale. Another fantastic Kelpie who is very smart and has been taught a number of tricks by her owner, including ringing a bell to go outside.
Jillaroo is a good dog indoors and settles well. She loves to go for a car ride. Loves the motorbike too. Noise is not a problem. Very friendly dog and a kind nature. She loves to sit with us at night and watch TV. Excellent in crate or kennel. Gets along extremely well with other dogs.
She's a very good dog working sheep and has a nice smoothness in the paddock but can also bring some extra power and push when working in the stockyards. She shows a lot of the old style our dogs are noted for such as break-out, point of balance and calmness when in close. She's a very classy worker.
Brock is a fantastic sire by Ameroo Ned and Noonbarra Emma. He was a superb dog right
from a puppy. Very easy to handle and adapted to new situations well.
Always happy and a devoted type.
He has been a delight to own and train and makes the most wonderful companion. A dog who is faithful, easy to train, friendly, wants
to please and very intelligent. He travels well, and adapts to new situations
easily. His breeding goes back to many of the great Kelpies in Australia.
He has a great temperament and is a very happy dog.
He has been a delight to own and train and makes the most wonderful companion. A dog who is faithful, easy to train, friendly, wants to please and very intelligent. He travels well, and adapts to new situations easily. His breeding goes back to many of the great Kelpies in Australia. He has a great temperament and is a very happy dog.
The combination of Brock and Jillaroo should give us very nice pups with wonderful temperaments, good with kids, versatile workers. Happy, friendly outgoing dogs suitable for family companions, dog sports, trick training and sheepdog trials.
Brock is one of the best sires we have ever had and is being put over an increasing number of females. He has a happy, friendly personality. He is a great mate to have around and is quite gentle while still being a wonderful dog that doesn't get bothered by much and adapts to new situations. Many of his pups have gone to family companion situations and have been ideal for that purpose. He is a very faithful dog himself and tends to produce that in his pups.
His work on sheep is very good. Has good bounce in yards that he inherited from his dad, Ned and he has lovely style in the field from his dam, Emma. Capable of any job. His pedigree brings in fantastic old famous Kelpies like Phils Creek Nap, Capree Cobb, Glenlogie Lucky, Hortons Squire, Avenpart Zondo and more. Good break-out, point of balance and correct distance on sheep and a good strong approach that tends to keep stubborn sheep moving freely. Nice power to force in races and yards when required. Many of these these traits are difficult to obtain in working dogs these days.
He loves to come out in the car for a drive and we often take him with us to cafes or the leash free dog park in nearby Orange. Sometimes he just goes for a ride and doesn't get out at all, but he still enjoys the drive and being with us. He walks very smoothly on a lead at your side with no pulling and at home is the type of dog that just likes to quietly come up to us and get a pat and maybe a scratch behind the ear and then he likes to sit at our feet.
Price include all vaccinations against serious dog diseases, Parvo/Distemper and Hepatitis. These puppies will also be Microchipped. They will be Vet checked, given regular worming, registration with W.K.C. in National Stud Book for Purebred Working Kelpies, also have a Noonbarra Dog folder and Kelpie information.
Firstly we work out which litter would best suit and than we do a lot of evaluating of each individual puppy. So, for example, we would match a different dog to a retired couple who are home 24/7 than we would for a young bloke who is very active and needs a running partner or for someone doing dog sports or maybe someone needing a strong willed cattle worker compared to someone with three little kids looking for a soft natured affectionate family dog.
All our pups get the best start to life here at the Noonbarra Stud. We think happy, healthy puppies are more likely to be easier to train, are better bonded to their owners and it helps to make them happy, well adjusted adults. We even have a basic puppy training program which includes socialising, exposure to noise, car travel and the beginnings of learning good manners and basic obedience. It also includes (very importantly) comprehensive day by day crate training sessions for each puppy. This is an incredible advantage for our customers. There is a page outlining this training on our website and much more detailed information in our book 'Kelpie Basics'.
Early socialising and
handling of puppies makes it all so much easier for our customers. We often have
a puppy or two in side on the lounge with us at night watching TV. Our mothers
have the highest degree of nutrition when pregnant and after they whelp, so pups
are very healthy and Mum is easily able to look after them with no stress.
We handle each puppy day by day, so they get used to human touch and we start to supplemental feed the puppies at 3 weeks of age. They also undergo a full worming program with a Veterinary supplied Fenbendazole based medication, all are carefully checked over by a Vet and each puppy is microchipped and vaccinated against major diseases, so you get the healthiest pup possible. They are well socialised right from the start and that makes them so much easier to handle and train for our customers. It also gives each puppy a strong connection to humans and makes them more affectionate and helps to build a better bond between you.
These matings are expected to be done sometime over the next few months when the females come into season.
In 2018, we expect to mate Noonbarra Cassie, Noonbarra Angie and Noonbarra Katie

KELPIE PUP PRICING
Prices listed here for Kelpie puppies are for
8 week old pups only.
Pricing for our Noonbarra Stud Kelpie puppies ranges from $1200 to $1500.
Most of our 8 week old puppies are $1200
We prefer our puppies to go to their new homes at 8 weeks. This is absolutely the very best age to get a puppy.
If you need us to hold a pup for you longer than the standard 8 weeks, we charge an additional $100 to hold one week. We can only do this when we have enough time to be able to devote to the puppy. The period from 8 weeks is the most important in a pups life. We do not hold puppies more than 9 weeks of age. If you cannot take a puppy at 8 - 9 weeks of age then let us know within 24 hrs of us notifying you of a puppy and we can cancel that booking and look at a future litter. If you do not notify us then you will forfeit your deposit.
Information on Kelpie history & the outstanding Kelpies of the past can be found in our book
