The History of Working Kelpies and Obesity
The Working Kelpie is most well known in Australia where we find a few different climates with areas of extreme cold as well as very warm and humid temperatures depending on where you are. The early part of the Working Kelpie's history has been very well documented and we know that the breed came from the bloodline of two Shelties from Scotland who were eventually bred with dogs in Australia after a move there and by the mid 1800's the Kelpie was a well known breed in Australia. Although their original ancestry was not one of working dogs the Working Kelpie found its respected position as a herding dog for many different types of livestock. The early Working Kelpie was a great competitor in livestock herding competitions in the last part of the 1800's. The breed was brought to North America during the early 1900's in order to help with livestock handling efforts. The Working Kelpie gives off a strong and dominating presence showing how hard it can work while. making the work seem almost effortless with its confident personality and great speed and agility.

Overweight/Obese Working Kelpies in Modern Times
There's no way to know for sure what the early Working Kelpie would have eaten but knowing that it was a dog that usually lived on a farm leads us to believe that it would have survived off of small wildlife that it would've caught or maybe even scraps and leftovers from their owners. The farmers would have treasurer their companions but may not have put too much thought into what they were eating. Today the Working Kelpie can be found all over the world but it still maintains its role as a herder of livestock mostly sheep, cattle, and goats. A fun sight to see would be when a Working Kelpie needs to get a better look at its surroundings and sits up on its hind legs to look around! In 2011 the popular Australian movie Red Dog had a Kelpie as its main character and the dog received the Golden Collar Award. Now days you can usually find a Working Kelpie as working dog by day and beloved family pet by night. Now that we have the convenience of modern dog food these dogs are no longer having to hunt for their own food and instead are given it daily usually without even having to ask. As its role has become a little less active it is very important that a Working Kelpie's diet be closely monitored for the right amount of food and nutrients.
