German / Australian Coolies, or Koolies as some call them, are medium size dogs (approx. 40lb) who will be your loyal pet, worker, herder or agility partner. They are a fantastic all-rounder who love a cuddle as much as they love tending sheep and goats. Coolies are consistently excellent performers at agility and flyball with speed that can’t compare.
The more you teach them the better they get. Even with 30 years behind her, Sue is always learning more. “My dogs help me. I am so proud of how quickly they pick up on new tricks and situation. Like us, they never stop learning.” Also like humans, Coolies each have their favourite things to do. The list of possibilities is extensive:
- Search and Rescue
- Urban Mushing
And, of course, herding. Coolies love to herd – no question there. Here are some FAQs about Canadian Cobar Coolies.
Our goal at Canadian Cobar Coolies is to breed healthy, well-rounded, socialized working dogs and for each of those dogs to find the perfect homes.
Breeding pairs as well as their offspring are DNA tested to ensure quality and, to an extent, control over genetic issues. Customers who purchase a Coolie from Killara Station will get a copy of their puppy’s DNA/genetic record.
