First of all, it’s crucial to provide a lot of outdoor play and exercise time for your Working Kelpie. This is a high energy breed of dog who requires well over an hour of high intensity exercise every day.
You’ll also want to add fetch and agility tasks into your daily exercise routines, otherwise you might find that your Working Kelpie becomes bored and takes out their frustration through bad and even destructive behavior.
If you have private outdoor space to let your Working Kelpie hang out in, remember that this is a very athletic dog who will require a large fence that cannot be scaled.
Other needs include dental hygiene and nail care. Brush your Working Kelpie’s teeth at least two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the accompanying bacteria. Daily is better.
Check your Working Kelpie’s nails once a month and see if they need to be trimmed. Although, if a Working Kelpie is given sufficient outdoors time, there’s a good chance their nails will stay in great condition naturally.
