Promoting dog products

We were honoured and proud to see Hawkesbury Bundy and Hawkesbury Cam used by a Pet Food Company to promote their working dog food. Bundy is on the front of the dog food bag, while Cam and Bundy appear on the rear of the bag.

Overseas Dogs

We are proud to say our dogs have been sought by overseas buyers. Hawkesbury Charge was chosen by Mr Kevin Reeves of Lyndhurst Kelpie Stud in Wiltshire UK. Mr Reeves is the UK representative of the Working Kelpie Council of Australia. Charge will look to fulfil Mr Reeves' requirements by working on his farm and performing working Kelpie demonstrations held around the UK. Charge is also a sire dog at the Lyndhurst Kelpie Stud.

Promoting the Working Kelpie

We promote the working Kelpie by way of working dog demonstrations. Anthony had his Kelpie team at the 2011 Sydney Royal Easter Show. This was a big hit with show-goers with up to 600 people attending each demonstration. The feedback was positive. Anthony also demonstrates his Kelpies at local shows and field days.

Stud Dogs

We strive to breed hard workers eager to please, that are worthy to breed on with and are proud of. Characteristics we look for are loyal and kind nature, with a natural/early instinct, stamina to go all day, forceful (not to back down on/off). Our dogs are big, sound, strong, robust, all-rounder's.
