Australian Cattle Dog








"No Dramas!" means "no worries" or "everything is fine" in australian slang.

Kennel No Dramas is a small hobby kennel and we currently have Australian Cattle Dog Muuki (Scanbull Ronmuuki) and Lapponian Herder Sohvi (Karjapeni Sohvi) residing with us. In addition we co-own one import male from Australia Eddie (Mystar Special Edition) with kennel Karjapeni. Ella (Cruela Kazari Toyo-Ken) has gone over the rainbow bridge and is dearly missed.

The first Australian Cattle Dog came to be with us 14 years ago, when I was looking for an active middle sized dog that would learn easily and that could acompany me everywhere I go.

I was having in mind a dog similar to that we had long time ago in my grandmothers farm - a red dog with pricked ears, named Muki (regular name for mutt in Estonia). Luckily I met just a dog like that in one of the dog shows. A dog that was middle sized, alert and full of action. That was an Australian Cattle Dog. Although I had a preference regarding colour, there was a litter of blue pups available in kennel Scanbull in Estonia. As we know the colour does not make a dog, so I came home with the dearest light blue coloured pup. Muuki grew up to be a dog with balanced character and a true gentleman he is. Two years later we importred with Lada Mehikas (kennel Karjapeni) a blue male pup from Australia to add to our lines here. Eddie has had litters in Estonia and in Finland as well. Another blue australian cattle dog came to us from Czeck Republic, where there was an interesting litter of only blue pups sired by a dog from a Canadian kennel known worldwide combined with American lines along dam's side. I had my plans made up for Ella and we started training obedience and agility.

In 2017 we added another breed to our household, Lapponian Herder. I was planning on having Sohvi for about 3 years, since I saw her mother only as young puppy - my mind was set.

I am sure there will always be australian cattle dogs in our family in the future as well. Hopefully I will have my dream of a red australian cattle dog come true.
