The Kelpie is a medium sized dog that fits many people's idea of an average sized dog. Males tend to be a bit taller than females and in different strains they can be light framed or a bit heavier boned. They should always look lighter and leggier than an Australian Cattledog.

The original line of working Kelpies tend to be a little taller than the close relative, the Show Kelpie breed. Although there are always variations, females are usually around 18-20 inches (46cm - 51cm) measured at the withers (shoulder). Males are nearly always over 20" (51cm) and many would be around 21" or 22" (53cm - 56cm) at the withers.

As the height is a minor concern to Kelpie breeders many do not even bother to measure their dogs. There has been some suggestion that breeders overseas are attempting to produce a bigger Kelpie which some suggest puts more strain on joints. Obviously the weight of a Working Kelpie would vary according to if it is working or not. As a general guide, most Working Kelpies in Australia would be from 14 - 21 kg. (30 - 46 lb).
