Bundy the real blue Kelpie runs at 40kph for ‘daily exercise’ next to her farmer’s master – and she can go for FIVE kilometers
- An Australian Kelpie is clocked at 40km and keeps the pace for 5km km
- Video of the ‘track star’ farm dog was uploaded to TikTok by its proud owner
- Kelpies can run up to 50 to 60 km in a day because they were bred to be working dogs
A working dog on an Australian farm is clocked at a speed of 40 km/h and keeps up the incredible pace for 5 km.
Bundy’s human, who posts under the TikTok handle Countryladbrad, uploaded the impressive video of the black Australian Kelpie running alongside his vehicle and making his way through a series of paddocks.
Commentators joked that the dog trackster was unlucky to miss a call to this month’s Olympics in Tokyo.
“Bundy is getting some exercise because she hasn’t been able to work much today so here’s what she gets to do,” Countryladbrad said in the clip.
‘Stretch 5 km to the end of the road. It’s not really far for a kelpie, but it does give her some exercise. 40 km/h. Don’t stop with this girl.’
While 5km may seem like quite a long distance to a dog, Kelpies are bred for farm work and can easily cover 50-60km in a day.
For that reason, Countryladbrad said he’s not a fan of people keeping kelpies as pets in small suburban backyards.

Other TikTokers agreed.
“It drives me crazy when I see them walking around town,” one wrote.
“A long walk at the end of the day isn’t nearly enough.”
Another said: ‘Working dogs need to be worked. They love it. It’s cruel not to.’
“You can only imagine what kelpies go through in a small backyard,” commented another.
