    Anybody else following this thread but have nothing to add because they own neither of these breeds so just creeping in out of it of this thread like this?

    I don't feel like that in this thread but quite often yes....I kinda wish I could somehow just pull that out in RL when it happens :D

    So I spent my morning bopping around different places putting together some comparisons.

    Ok first off, this was on the Koolie Club of Australia's website

    http://www.australian-koolies.info/Training Articles/Koolies V Kelpies.htm

    Here's a thread on another forum about Border Collies vs Kelpies

    Overall, the biggest thing I've found being repeated as core temperaments are

    *Natural off switch
    *Very up beat/outgoing
    *Work for you rather than just the reward but tend to not work well for others
    *When young, easily distracted by people and dogs
    *People and dog friendly
    *Not as prone to bitchiness
    *Will try their hearts out for you
    *Endless energy and will never quite on you
    *Can be soft to their person

    But the breed has a ton of variety so that does make this difficult, I think the only thing I've ever seen said by ALL people is the three I bolded.
