A price record for a working farm dog was smashed over the weekend, with an undisclosed buyer in Victoria paying $22,200 for a two year old kelpie called Glencairn Seven.

It was sired by Jerilderee breeder Christian Peacock and bred from his dog Pud's Cruiser out of a bitch owned by Dave Seatman called Sunraysia Clair.

The previous record for a working dog was $14,000, set in March this year.

A second dog broke that figure at the working dog auction in Casterton over the weekend, with Ian O'Connell's bitch Lessi Sally going for $16,500 to stockman Jamie Partridge.
