Breed History

The Shetland sheepdog originated on the Shetland Islands of Scotland in the 1800s. They almost certainly were derived from early collie-type dogs that also provided root stock for collies and border collies.
The terrain and sparse vegetation of the islands favored smaller livestock, which in turn only needed smaller herding dogs. The Shetland sheepdog herded sheep, ponies and chickens, keeping them away from cultivated fields in a land with few fences.

Shetland sheepdogs were first exhibited as Shetland collies in England, but when collie fanciers objected, the name was changed to Shetland sheepdog. The breed’s popularity followed that of the collie, with many families opting for what they thought of as a miniature collie.
The Shetland sheepdog remains a steady favorite as a family dog throughout the world.

More About This Breed

Size

The Shetland Sheepdog stands between 13 and 16 inches tall at the shoulder, but it’s not unusual for them to be over- or undersize. A typical Sheltie weighs about 14 to 20 pounds.
 

Personality

Sheltie is intensely loyal, gentle, and sensitive. There’s a wide range of personalities in the breed, from outgoing and boisterous to calm and sedate to shy or retiring. Whatever their personality, Shelties prefer to be with their people at all times and will follow them from room to room during the course of the day.
Like all dogs, Shelties need early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences — when they’re young. Socialization helps ensure that your Sheltie puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog.
 

Care

Although Shelties were bred to withstand harsh weather conditions, they love their people and should live indoors with them as part of the family. They enjoy going for walks, playing fetch with the kids, and running around the dining room table. Afterward, they’ll help you hold down the sofa. Because of their small size, Shelties can do well in an apartment if their people are committed to providing daily walks and playtime, as well as training them not to bark incessantly.
This requires finesse. Shelties can have their feelings easily hurt by harsh treatment. Instead of yelling at your Sheltie for barking, acknowledge his alert (“Thanks for telling me about the squirrel in the yard”) and give a verbal reprimand only if he continues barking. In general, Shelties respond best to positive reinforcement such as praise, play, and food rewards.

Feeding

Always provide your Sheltie with fresh water. And feed a quality, nutritionally balanced canine diet. It’s common to feed two measured meals per day.
But be sure to discuss both the type of food and amount with your vet. For instance, your vet might recommend different diets based on age and/or activity level.
Also, be mindful of treats and other extra food to prevent overeating. 
 

Grooming

Coat is long, harsh and straight, with a short dense undercoat. Brushing and combing every other day is necessary to prevent mats. Shedding is above average.
