Australian Cattle Dog, ILU : energetic and intelligent



During the last 26 years, we have been very fortunate to host many guests of rare breeds of dog. Here is a very special dog breed called the   AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG.



Wikipedia describes this breed in the following manner: “As with dogs from other working breeds, the Australian Cattle Dog (or just “Cattle Dog”)  is energetic and intelligent with an independent streak. It responds well to structured training, particularly if it is interesting and challenging. It forms a strong attachment to its owners, and can be protective of them and their possessions. It is easy to groom and maintain, requiring little more than brushing during the shedding period.

The Australian Cattle Dog is a medium-sized, short-coated dog that occurs in two main colour forms. It has either brown or black hair distributed fairly evenly through a white coat, which gives the appearance of a “red” or “blue” dog.”

There are very few “Cattle Dogs” in the Province of Quebec. During the last 26 years, at Manoir Kanisha, we have boarded specimens of over 200 different breeds of dogs but only ONE Cattle dog. Her name is ILU. She was boarded at Manoir Kanisha and just returned back home this morning.Australian Cattle Dog, ILU : energetic and intelligent

While ILU was boarded at our facilities we took a few pictures of her and shared them with their owners. Here is their message:

Kersti and I were thrilled with the photos of ILU you sent us.  Australian Cattle Dog, ILU : energetic and intelligent

As always, your photography is magnificent.


ILU had a marvellous time at Manoir Kanisha.

She is so well taken care of.


It also looks like Karolina really enjoyed ILU’s stay.

Their relationship goes back many years now.

They clicked from day one.


Thanks again

Denis, Kersti and ILU

Ilu, our australian cattle dog, loves her time at the Manoir, particularly her play times in the outdoor area with the agility course set up. As a high energy dog she enjoys getting put through the paces and the photos show it. The staff are super and very attentive at all times. Manoir Kanisha provides relief from any concern we may have about leaving our dog during our holidays away. It’s a super safe environment. We have been very happy clients for many years now.
