UPCOMING PROPOSED LITTER - NOONBARRA JIM - NOONBARRA ANGIE Approx. May/June 2021
   
   


COVID  SITUATION & INTERSTATE CUSTOMERS
The good news is that we can now get puppies once again to most Australian states. Prices are slightly higher than before Covid but nowhere as bad as we thought they would be.
NT is still too expensive but we expect that to drop once Virgin airlines are doing more domestic flights and we don't have to organise an overnight stop out of hours. Many customers have now waited more than a year for their puppies and we understand their frustration. Many have already named their puppies and/or bought dogs beds etc. It's been such a long wait.

So we have decided to continue breeding this year into winter and try to help everyone to get their puppies. We will now have a litter born in May and we are hoping for another in June. So if you have been waiting patiently, please be assured that we are doing our very best to get you a great little puppy as soon as we possible can.

 

DURING COVID THE STUD IS CLOSED TO ALL VISITORS EXCEPT CUSTOMERS PICKING UP   (Special conditions such as masks & meeting outside may apply at certain times)

    

 

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 often a waiting period to get one of our Noonbarra Kelpies. You must book with a $150 deposit (non-refundable) 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.

INFORMATION ABOUT  BOOKING A KELPIE PUPPY AND DEPOSITS.


KELPIE LITTER DUE - May 2021

Noonbarra Ben - Noonbarra Sally

Pups due to be born in mid May 2021.   

   This litter has only just been listed but we have already got a lot of bookings especially interstate. Sally often has big litters so anyone interested should make a booking as soon as possible. Also lately so many customers have had to change their plans many times. Especially interstate customers, so nothing is certain. We expect another litter in June and this year maybe also July. We don't usually breed during the colder months but this year we had a big backlog with quite a few interstate customers waiting since late 2019. So after those litters we'll probably won't have any more pups until December or January 2022. We are also retiring some of our mums so we will have less litters in 2022 and from then onwards.

Ben is a wonderful young sire for us.  Ben's dad is Noonbarra Dave who has already made his mark as a top level sire for us and is very popular with our customers. Ben is very similar in both looks and personality. He is a friendly and a happy easy going type of dog. He loves to be around you and involved with what you are doing. He was a wonderful dog right from a small puppy and easy to train. He has a has a sense of play and fun and always happy. Ben is also a very clever dog and learns quickly.

We think he's a very handsome Kelpie and we often gets comments at cafes etc. when we take him into town. People love patting him. Ben, just like his dad, Dave, was so easy to train as a puppy and is the type of dog that people enjoy having around. He's the type that wants to please.  He travels well in a car and makes a first class companion dog.

He works on sheep very nicely and can handle stubborn sheep. Good presence in the stockyards. Lovely point of balance and will come in when needed. Good work taking sheep off rails, fences etc. Loves running with the Ag bike and gets along with other dogs. He's a great dog in the house and settles well. Usually curls up in a dog bed or on the lounge. We also take him into town every now and then and he is perfectly behaved at cafes etc. In the car you wouldn't even know he was there. He has that loyal, faithful nature that we like in all our dogs and gets along with other dogs and animals.


This will be Sally's last litter. She's been a fantastic mother and we couldn't be more pleased. If anything, she looks after her pups too well and puts everything into them. We have to feed her constantly at a very high level, just to keep up her condition.

Our Sally is a lovely sweet girl. Very affectionate and has a real happy personality. She has a sot nature. She just loves to be with you and whatever you are doing. Great dog indoors. Travels well in a car too. Sally's mum is Nell, and her dad was our wonderful sire, Ned. Her brother is our wonderful sire, Noonbarra Brock and she has many similarities with him including her great nature. She has some superb breeding behind her. She's a clever little thing and a nice dog to have as a companion. She is very loyal and the type of dog that wants to be around you and part of what you are doing. She settles well and is a good kennel dog and house dog. She can also be fast and agile and we have had great reports back on her pups in the past.

Noonbarra Sally

Good house dog. Sally is a lovely companion for us. Sally is a steady and gentle worker and can work close or medium-wide 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.


Because we are a long running breeding Stud we have the advantage of knowing what grandparents and even great grandparents were like and we can apply that to our understanding of what to expect from litters. Both Ben and Sally were happy, easy going puppies themselves and that is very important as it indicates that their puppies will be similar. This is the way we like to breed. Noonbarra Ben has been producing some outstanding puppies for us and we are more than pleased with him. Sally travels well in a car and walks nicely on a lead. She's the type of dog that wants to be with you and loves pats.

This mix of these two parents should give us a lovely natured puppies that are ideal for families and children. They will like to be involved in their owner's activities. We expect a reasonable degree of confidence and a better than average adaptability to new situations. Nice affectionate dogs that are very friendly and have a happy disposition.

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. Click here to read more on how we evaluate each puppy

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'. Click here for more about crate training.

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.

KELPIE PUPPY LITTER EXPECTED

We are hoping to get this proposed upcoming litter soon. Very likely to be both Jim and Angie's last litter. Jim is the main house dog at the moment but he's getting old so we don't know how long he can continue to produce puppies. Past puppies from this breeding have been outstanding and we have had numerous glowing reports back from customers. Very clever puppies that fit in with families very well.  We actually expect a couple of our breeding females to be in season during April and this year we will have at least a couple of litters over winter.  This is one of the proposed litters this year.

NOONBARRA JIM - NOONBARRA ANGIE

All pups will be Red & Tan in colour
Kelpie puppies at 8 weeks of age : $1800








KELPIE PUPPY PRICING

Prices listed here for Kelpie puppies are for 8 week old pups only.

Pricing for our Noonbarra Stud Kelpie puppies : $1800.

We prefer our Kelpie puppies to go to their new homes around 8 weeks. This is the perfect age. This allows the customer to have the puppy when they are at their most dependent. We want the puppy to fit in well with their new home and owner.

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 and it's when they learn a lot. As we usually have a number of puppies and lots of adults to look after, it's difficult to give one puppy the one-on-one attention that an owner can give. Except in exceptional circumstances we usually do not hold puppies more than 10 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.

Sometimes when we are not busy and can devote enough time to raising a pup a bit longer we do sell pups over 3 months of age. Cost is around $2200 - $2600. This includes another set of vaccinations and two or three extra worm treatments. A lot more time one-on-one is put into these older pups. So they are better crate trained and have had lead training and car travel as well as being exposed to various situations, noise, strangers etc. We also do a number of down-stay lessons and often take them to a cafe and about town.

 


 

KELPIE  BASICS

This is our very popular manual designed for all Kelpie owners of every level from raw beginners through to experienced trainers. This practical Kelpie manual deals with everything involved in owning and training a Kelpie to ensure your puppy grows up to be a well mannered, obedient dog. It also works with adults too. A lifetime of experience with Kelpies is in this book.

The book is not about how to train Kelpies on sheep or cattle but this foundation training is important for all dogs! It deals with general obedience training, socialising your Kelpie, feeding, crating, toilet training, preventing problem behaviour in your Kelpie, dominance issues, understanding your Kelpie, Kelpies and car travel, bathing, digging holes, stealing food, walking your Kelpie on a lead, coming when called... and much more.

CRATE TRAINING

This specialised training is a huge plus for you and your puppy. It is now included at no extra charge with every Noonbarra puppy sold. This training package is for crate training your puppy before you get him. This is to help your puppy sleep in a crate at night, in your home, with minimum or no disruption to your sleep. This training usually takes between 4 and 6 days. To prepare your puppy we first introduce a number of puppies together and gradually get down to the puppy in the crate on his own an for extended periods including a couple of overnight sessions. Puppies are usually ready to go by 8 weeks of age. This is designed to get your puppy off to a great start and to learn to be relaxed and comfortable at night in a crate.

We do a number of days and overnight training of your puppy to accept and be comfortable when confined to a crate. Most see this as their own special den and will go in of their own accord. This is a great help to all customers but it is essential to any pup being transported by plane to their destination. [See info below]. Getting your puppy started well in a crate is a big help to new puppy owners. Some people prefer to do all the training themselves and we are happy with that (unless the puppy is being flown) but for most people getting the timing right and knowing what is normal behaviour in a crate etc. can be daunting and we recommend this basic package to get them started in the right direction.

Without this training, many pups are likely to bark or howl for many hours (night after night) or even panic. We have seen pups from other breeders that haven't been trained get so panicked and upset they completely break down and need a lot of extra training just to get over the ordeal. We have seen untrained pups urinate, soil their crate or even vomit just from the stress & panic so the initial crate training should be done gradually and with lots of understanding and preferably with two or three pups together for short day periods and then the period in the crate gradually lengthened and the pup in on his own for short periods until you are able to crate overnight. We have very experienced in doing this and have crate trained hundreds of dogs including dogs from other breeders.

You have to know when a pup needs to get out to relieve himself and when he is just frustrated at being restrained. Experienced dog owners know how to do this but new dog owners can have a nightmare time of it unless the breeder does the first few days of crate training for them.

This crate training package is a 'restraint' lesson and is good foundation training and teaches your pup that YOU are the ADULT (parent/pack leader) and he must sometimes be restrained and comply to what you want. It gives him boundaries and teaches him to be able to settle. It makes him a happier dog. It also helps with toilet training.

Down-Stay training and tie up are two other important restraint lessons. Crate training stops your puppy from panicking in a crate and makes all your other training much easier. More info on how to crate train is in our book 'Kelpie Basics'. Please note that by no means can we make your puppy perfect in a crate within that short time frame. We can make the puppy accepting of the crate, not panicking and content & relaxed most of the time but most pups are not 100% happy to be restrained in a crate until they are at least 5 months of age or older. You should still expect 5 minutes of whining or protest at night for the first few nights. If you continue your pup's crate training he will absolutely love his crate just like our dogs here!
