Shetland Sheepdogs, better known as Shelties, are extremely bright and sensitive dogs that are known for their devotion to their families. Shelties were originally developed as herding dogs in the Shetland Islands of Scotland and their herding instincts are often apparent even in a more urban setting. In the absence of livestock, Shetland Sheepdogs will happily herd cats, squirrels, and neighborhood children. These small-statured but sturdy canines are particularly devoted to their families and have developed a reputation as Velcro dogs due to their preference for staying as close to their human companions as possible.

While Shelties make excellent companion animals, they were bred to be very active dogs. They require a great deal of physical and mental exercise throughout their lives in order to remain happy and healthy. Fortunately, they are also extremely intelligent and can excel in many different roles, including those of canine athlete, show dog, animal actor, or therapy/service animal. In these pages, you will find all of the information you need to ensure that your curious and clever pup grows into a confident, content, and well-mannered canine companion.

Choosing a Shetland Sheepdog for your canine companion means you will always have an energetic and loyal cohort to share your adventures with, but if you aren't careful, he may very well outsmart you. This book covers every aspect of owning a Sheltie, from choosing the perfect canine companion for your home to making your precious pooch's senior years shine.
