Breeding quality Australian Koolies

The Koolie or Coolie (also known as the Australian Koolie or German Koolie) is an Australian working dog breed. The Koolie is a working or herding dog which has existed in Australia since the early 19th century when it was bred from imported British working dogs. The koolie remains one of the healthiest working breeds in Australia - with less genetic and physical issues then its cousins the Border Collie and Kelpie.

There is substantial variation in the Koolie population, as Koolies were bred to exhibit different characteristics in different regions. The Koolie Club of Australia defines the breed based on its ability to work rather than on its conformation. However, most Koolie breeders refer to the Koolie as a breed rather than as a type, and assert that it "breeds true", with various types or strains. The Koolie comes in many different colours, both Merle and solid coat patterns and also short, medium or long coated. The average koolie stands between 50-55cm tall.

The Koolie has an amazing natural instinct which is making it a poplar choice as a working dog. The Koolie's will to please, trainability and drive also makes them a popular choice for sporting (Agility/Flyball)

Koolies require daily physical and mental stimulation.
