Welcome

Thank you for your interest in our Shetland Sheepdog breeders and their Shetland Sheepdog puppies. Also called the Sheltie, this active dog is a loving companion to a family as well as a farmer’s best friend. In the past, Shelties were known for driving away animals that stray in a garden or field and bark to warn their master of anyone entering the property. They make perfect watchdogs because they are protective of their territory. And, they are also popular in show rings because of their obedience to commands and their impressive agility.

Breed Summary

Knowing the Sheltie’s dog breed info will help you get to know the breed even before you decide to buy one. Although small and looks a bit like the Collie, the Shetland Sheepdog is an entirely unique breed and has his distinct characteristics. One of the Sheltie’s characteristics is his protectiveness, which makes him an excellent watchdog. The Shetland Sheepdog is also known for his keen intelligence, enough to land him the sixth spot among 132 dog breeds. With lots of mental stimulation and physical exercise, your Sheltie becomes a happy dog. To know more about this breed, take a look at our Temperament & Personality page.


Perfect Matched Breed

Now that you are familiar with the characteristics of the Shetland Sheepdog, the next step is to look for trusted Sheltie breeders who take care of the pups and groom them to become perfectly matched Sheltie puppies. Let us do all the work as we deal with the Sheltie adoption process to bring you and your new pet together. This will greatly eliminate issues with your pet regarding his personality, temperament, or health because the breeders see to it that the pups are happy and in the pink of health.


Facts - Overview

Part of making the decision to adopt a Sheltie is to know the Shetland Sheepdog breed very well. This includes reading the Shetland Sheepdog’s breed info to help you see how you and this dog would get along.

Aside from being excellent watchdogs, Shelties are also very intelligent. In fact, a study yielded that among 132 dog breeds, the Shelties rank sixth in mental capacity. This intelligence gives them the ability to follow commands given to them the first time. They also excel in tracking and herding.

Shelties provide a good choice for working people, because the former are contented at home. Give them a toy to play with and they’re good to go.

Because of the Sheltie’s herding nature, they must be kept on a leash when you’re walking with them. This prevents them from chasing cars or anything that moves.

Shetland Sheepdogs are friendly, but they also tend to be shy around strangers. It is best to train them to socialize as a puppy. The Sheltie can easily get bored with routine, too, so vary the exercises you give him. He will appreciate the activity because he has lots of energy to use.

In terms of appearance, the Sheltie is oftentimes compared to a Collie because of its thick coat and its agility. The Sheltie has alert almond-shaped eyes and a black nose. They are also muscular, which makes the male Shelties more masculine. The female Shelties, on the other hand, look feminine. Their long mane (resembling a lion’s) and double coat may be blue merle, sable, or black. To keep the Sheltie’s coat mat and tangle-free, regular brushing, at least once a week, is a must.

Shelties are also good with children, so you don’t have to worry in case you have children in your house. They are also comfortable living in an apartment, as long as you take them out for a walk daily.


Facts - Personality

Knowing the Sheltie’s temperament is important because it will make you understand the specific needs of this breed. The Shetland Sheepdog loves being with his family. His gentle nature makes him a perfect addition to any home, especially that with kids around. However, Shelties tend to be shy when they are with strangers. That’s why early socialization is a must to help them become more relaxed when they are with people.

Another aspect of a Shetland Sheepdog’s personality is its agility and ability to follow commands quickly. The Sheltie is undoubtedly intelligent. He can be very competitive as well, and his herding nature adds to the distinctness of his character.

They also enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. An everyday walk suits them fine, but remember to keep them on a leash. They can run as well. Keep in mind that the Sheltie is really smart, so he requires activities that both address his physical and cognitive needs. Make him find stuff, play fetch, or learn new tricks. Anything new for the Sheltie to learn is A-Ok with him.

Moreover, the Sheltie has a high-pitched bark that can alert you if there is someone who enters your premises. However, he will not bark if it’s someone he knows, or if it’s an animal or a biker that passes by. The Sheltie just seems to know who is a friend, and who is a foe.

Regardless of what the Sheltie can do, always put premium on training and socialization. Give your dog positive reinforcement as well.


Facts - Care

Shetland Sheepdog care includes training them by using gentle words and tones. During exercises, they love to receive treats and praises – these are the sources of their motivation. Sheltie training should start when they are young, and if possible, should continue until they are adults. Advanced exercises are good for their physical and mental health. Because this breed is highly competitive, giving them lots of activities that stimulate their brain while making them physically strong would make them really happy and excited. For instance, you could teach your dog new tricks every week. You could also make the Sheltie find an object or solve a puzzle.

Their “herding” nature also makes them chase moving objects. Thus, keep them on a leash when they’re walking with you. If this option is not available, then build fences around your area to keep your Sheltie within a safe perimeter.

Sheltie puppy care also requires that you groom him by brushing and giving him a bath. If you are unsure as to how to clean delicate areas such as the eyes and ears, use a damp cloth to pat around his eyes, and a cotton ball with veterinarian-approved cleaner for his ears. Take him to the vet every now and then to check for signs of diseases.


Facts - Grooming

Sheltie grooming is easy if you’re going to follow these steps. Ultimately, grooming will make your Shetland Sheepdog healthier and happier.

Appearance

The Shetland Sheepdog may resemble the Collie in terms of his coat and body, but the Sheltie is actually a different breed. For one, he has a head shaped like a wedge. His nose is black and his dark eyes are so gentle you’d want to cuddle the dog the moment he looks at you. They may have blue eyes, but only for those whose coat is colored blue merle. They also have a muscular build which makes the male Shelties masculine-looking. However, female Shelties look feminine. This breed also has a long tail and mane.

Size and Weight

Generally, a Sheltie should weigh 18 pounds and stand between 13- to 16 inches. Such measurements are common in both male and female Shetland Sheepdogs.

Coat and Color

The thick double coat of Shelties consists of two things: a short undercoat, and a hard topcoat. The Sheltie’s mane also covers his legs and tail, that’s why he is often described as having the hair of a lion. The Shetland Sheepdog’s color has three kinds: blue merle, sable, or black. Sable is defined as a shade between gold and mahogany.

Grooming Needs

Brush your Sheltie’s coat once a week to eliminate mats and tangles. Also, brushing helps keep the coat shiny. Pay attention to the hair under your dog’s ears as well as mats may be forming in those areas. If your Sheltie sheds heavily, the brushing should be on a daily basis. Bathe your dog only when necessary.

The ears should be regularly checked for signs of irritation, infection, or wax buildup. Use a veterinarian-approved cleanser. Keep tartar at bay by brushing your Sheltie’s teeth. Trim your Sheltie’s nails regularly as well to prevent them from gathering dirt.

If you need more ideas on how to groom Shetland Sheepdogs, don’t hesitate to ask the veterinarian for suggestions. They might also give you powders or other grooming tools for your pet. Likewise, don’t forget to groom your Sheltie when he’s still a pup so he would get accustomed to the process.


Facts - Health

Your Shetland Sheepdog’s health is very important. As simple as it sounds, it actually covers the food you give and the possible diseases that you and your dog should be wary of.

First, your Sheltie’s nutrition largely depends on the quality of dog food you feed it with. Check if the product complies with nutrition standards, or if the dog food contains vitamins and minerals that address your dog’s needs. Be careful not to feed your Sheltie too much, though. An overweight Shetland Sheepdog is as alarming as a malnourished Sheltie. Around ¾ to 2 cups of dog food would sustain your dog’s hunger.

Similarly, look for the symptoms of the following diseases and help your pet steer clear of them.

Collie Eye Anomaly: Also known as CEA, this condition causes blindness, in which both eyes could be affected. This disease is said to be an abnormality in genes, and there is no known treatment as of now.

Hypothyroidism: This happens when the Sheltie’s body cannot maintain the level of thyroid hormones, thus giving your dog dry skin, a thinning coat, a slow heart rate, and weight gain. There are medicines to neutralize the effects, but since this is progressive, it will continue until the dog reaches old age.

Hip dysplasia: The femur is displaced and cannot fit into the hip joint’s socket. This can give pain to your dog.


Facts - History

The Sheltie’s history begins in Shetland Islands, a region in the middle of Norway and Scotland. The farmers of Shetland Islands bred the dogs, which they called Toonie at first. Even during those times, these dogs were known to be herders because they protect the sheep, hence the name Shetland Sheepdog.

The Sheltie was brought to England in the 1800s. Back in Shetland Islands, farmers began breeding Shelties – only that time they were smaller in size.

Because the Shelties were rumored to have been crossbred with the Cocker Spaniel, people wondered what the original Shetland Sheepdog looked like. There were breeders who even suggested that the Shelties should be bred with Collies.

In 1909, the Shetland Sheepdog was recognized and accepted by the Kennel Club of England. However, some of them were named as Shetland Collies. On the other hand, the American Kennel Club had its first Shetland Sheepdog in 1911.

Despite being accepted in breed clubs, there was much controversy about the appearance of the Sheltie and its crossbreeding. Even the breeders of the Collie disliked the fact that the Sheltie was once registered as “Shetland Collie”. In 1930, after disagreements and debates, the English and Scottish kennel clubs agreed that the Sheltie should be like a miniature Collie. This just proves that the history of the Shetland Sheepdog is as colorful as interesting as the breed itself.
