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.
Dave is a handsome Kelpie and often gets comments when we take him out. He has a sense of fun and loves to meet people. Dave is easy to train and likes to please. He is a very clever dog. Travels well and makes a first class companion. He draws attention wherever he goes. Well behaved at cafes and in car.
He works on sheep very nicely and can handle either nervous or stubborn sheep. Lovely point of balance and will come in when needed. Good work taking sheep off rails, fences etc. Good in the house and settles well. He has that loyal, faithful nature that we like in all our dogs and gets along with other dogs and animals.
Katie has produced some exceptional pups for us in the past. This is a lovely combination of two wonderful Kelpies and a repeat of the wonderful 2016 mating..
Noonbarra Katie is a medium sized female. She is very playful and affectionate. Loves to just sit at your feet and be patted. She is a good runner and quite agile so this litter would be ideal for customers wanting to do dog sports such as Agility Competition. She has a sweet, friendly nature and is a happy type of dog. Very pretty too. She learns quickly and is very smart. Travels well in car. Good house dog. Makes a lovely companion for us.
Katie is a pretty little girl and from our wonderful dog, Noonbarra Ben. We bred her especially to get a pup with the excellent qualities of Noonbarra Ben combined with Trixie. She is a half sister to Noonbarra Meg VI and Noonbarra Tilly here.
Katie is a steady and gentle worker and can work close or wide out off her sheep. She is keen and keeps calm and walks up to sheep slowly and with determination. Plenty of natural ability there. She goes back in her breeding to many of the great Kelpies, such as Glenlogie Lucky, Phils Creek Sam, Karrobar Gin, Capree Watch, Karrobar Moss, Rockybar Smart, Glendon Claude, Liscannor Pace and Avenpart Zondo (close up due to A.I.). Most of these are featured in the book: Kelpie Legends.

Some Customer comments from the 2015 litter (Noonbarra Dave & Noonbarra Katie)
Jedda is doing so well. I look at her each day and think how blessed we were to get her. We were the lucky ones to see her at the right time and be able to have her in our lives. She is learning quickly with instructions and commands. She is so admired by everyone that meets her. On her visit to the vet for her latest vaccination she won the vet over. I think he would have taken her home if he could have. The kids love playing with her and keeping her entertained. She has also started to be good company for our other dog Pablo.
“One word WOW !!! Make it two. Thank you or is that 3 ! Lol What a wonderful companion .... He slept nearly all the way home to Wollongong on Aleks lap. His first night by himself he was far better than expected with minor crying. He already know's he can't come in side unless I say so and also knows when he is in he goes to inside cushion bed. Very very smart dog indeed. He's very loving and enjoys just being beside both myself and partner Jess. We're just sitting on the back deck now playing with him and enjoying his company. Again thank you very very much. Shane and Max
Rusty is now 5
months old and is the most amazing dog possible. Emma and I can't believe how
good he has been right from the very beginning, you truly picked the perfect dog
We are so happy with our little boy he is exactly the dog we wanted. Everybody can't get over how friendly and well behaved he is. On many days he has come to work with me and just fallen asleep either on or under my desk and my fellow work colleagues don't even know he is there. Thanks again for our perfect little friend and family member.
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.
We want each puppy to be the
best possible match for their lifestyle and situation. 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.

If you are looking for a male puppy that is a happy, outgoing sort, then this may be the dog for you. He is very gentle and sweet. This puppy has already had basic puppy training and has had some crate training too. He has had a lot of socialising, been exposed to new situations, traffic, machinery, etc.
This pup would make a great companion dog or family dog. Loves to be with people and very affectionate. He has good traits for competing in dog sports such as Agility (he is fast & agile) or tracking (great sense of smell) and would also suit obedience competition. He is very good around people and other dogs and has a very loyal nature. He looks a bit bigger and older in the photos than he actually is. He is really still only a little puppy. He responds well to training.
These matings are expected to be done sometime over the next few months when the females come into season.
In late 2017 and early 2018, we expect to mate Noonbarra Ellie, Noonbarra Sally and Noonbarra Cassie

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 $1100 up to approx. $1800.
Most of our 8 week old puppies are $1100-$1250.
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 per week. We can only do this when we have enough time to be able to devote to the puppy. Between 8 and 12 weeks of age is the most important in a pups life. We do not like to hold puppies more than 9 weeks of age unless you are very experienced with young dogs or there is a very strong reason to hold the puppy. Usually we prefer to cancel the booking and look at a future litter.
Puppies kept longer than 8
weeks of age must also include the $100 puppy training program which we need to
continue on from 8 weeks.
These prices include the extra worming program if required.
Information on Kelpie history & the outstanding Kelpies of the past can be found in our book
