Good with dogs and older kids, Jazz is happy, affectionate, smart and playful.
Her favourite things include attention, walks, exploring, swimming and pigs ears. She may lazily chase a bird from time to time and will happily chill out in a comfortable spot to watch the world go by between naps.
Storms tends to scare her a little and she is not fond of being bathed - but loves going to a dog washer ... it must be the treats!
Active singles or couples who want a four legged companion to join them on walks, adventures and playtime at home - she loves that and has so much fun!
Jazz thrives on human company but can cope alone. She would enjoy playing with older kids.
Jazz is good with kids but like most dogs, does not like being rough housed. We recommend any kids be 12 yrs or older and only if gentle and calm around dogs.
Kelpies like a strong pack leader who is firm but kind.
Another permanent friendly dog would be nice but not essential.

When OFF a lead ...
Her recall is good when called by her 'pack leader' but may ignore a call by someone less confident - kelpies are a smart lot !!
