Australian Cattle Dogs
Goolara Australian Cattle Dogs
Goolara is Aboriginal for “moonlight”
We are a small hobby kennel of Australian Cattle Dogs from Championship lines. The Australian Cattle dog is a pure, healthy and long living breed. They are multi disciplined; from working livestock, to show, obedience and agility. Highly intelligent, they need good amounts of exercise and mental stimulation as a bored cattle dog is a “naughty” cattle dog! Australian Cattle dogs are not for the inexperienced owner as they are tough dogs, but in the right hands they are wonderful, loving and loyal companions.
Our dogs compete in conformation from Open shows to Championship shows with successful results. In 2014 we had our first litter and are looking forward to their progress.
All of our dogs are health tested as recommended by the Australian Cattle Dog Society GB and the Kennel Club. We breed the occasional litter, so please contact us for more information or should you wish to discuss the breed.
