The Shetland Sheepdog can also be called the Sheltie. The Sheltie is a breeding dog that originates from the Scottish Shetland Islands. Controversy trailed the nomenclature of the breed initially as ‘Shetland Collie’, this name format wasn’t accepted by the Rough collie breeders.  It is a very hard-working small dog that is vocal, excitable, intelligent, and willing to please. Discover more about our Shetland Sheepdog puppies for sale below!

The Shetland Sheepdog is a breeding by-product of the crossing between mainland working collies that were conveyed to England. Later on, it was extensively crossed with the Rough Collie and other breeds. Other Breeds such as King Charles Spaniel, The Pomeranian, Border collie, and the extinct Greenland yakki.

The Shetland Sheepdog is a highly intelligent breed. Research done by Dr. Stanley Coren shows that the Sheltie has a 6th out of 8th ranking for intelligent dogs. Shelties are very good at understanding instructions. The sheltie will master a command given to it within 5 repetitions and subsequently respond to that command accordingly.

The Shetland Sheepdog is a breed of dog that is great in the home front. It is an ideal dog for a quiet family. It is very sensitive to manic sounds and this can seriously lead to some friction between the dog and the occupants of the home environment.

Shelties get along quite well with kids; however, they should be made to get along with older kids to avoid a frosty relationship with toddlers. Toddlers are quite inquisitive, so one false move might lead to a counterproductive situation.  Also, a well-fenced home is an ideal environment for the Sheltie to thrive in and engage in some physical activities.

Exercise is important for this dog breed. An important role exercise plays is that it helps to improve any dog breed’s health. The Sheltie is a very athletic dog that loves to run around and play. At least one hour of exercise daily is a good regimen for the Sheltie. Shelties can perform tasks for as long as you require them to, they are highly sociable and are usually happy when they have been giving a task to complete.

Grooming the Shetland Sheepdog can be quite tedious. Committing yourself to the grooming of a Sheltie for the first time requires endurance and diligence. For a Sheltie owner to properly groom the Sheltie, the skill of handling a brush is required to brush deep down to the core.  Brushing the coats keeps the coat healthy, this subsequently prevents matting. You should note that the nature of the soft hair makes it prone to entanglement, so it is advisable to engage in regular brushing to keep the couch fur-free.

Our Shetland Sheepdog puppies for sale come from either USDA licensed commercial breeders or hobby breeders with no more than 5 breeding mothers. USDA licensed commercial breeders account for less than 20% of all breeders in the country.

We only purchase puppies from the very best sources, and we stand behind every puppy we sell.
