In 1987 Mike and I got our first blue merle Shetland Sheepdog. Sammy joined our family at 10 weeks, and in 1989 became Ch. Shadow Hill's Royal Ribbon. Sammy helped me learn about shelties, showing in conformation and how to be trained by a sheltie! I recommend the book Sheltie Talk to anyone interested in becoming involved in our breed. Ch. Sammy gets credit for getting me hooked on breeding and showing, it is my favorite hobby.
We do not have a kennel so, We keep our numbers small. Our adults and puppies are kept in our home, and they are treated like our children. They do get a lot of attention and are with us no matter where we go. We have, on average, 1 to 2 litters a year and sometimes we might skip a year.
In the Conformation ring we have been lucky to finish a number of our homebred dogs and other breeders’ dogs also. We have done so well with our shelties, winning Herding Group placements, Best Of Breed Class, Runner Up Futurity Class, National Specialty Class Winners, and Best In Specialty Show Winners. We also have many Agility, Obedience, and Herding titles.
We sell our puppies and occasional adults to pet, conformation, or performance homes. Several dogs we have placed have gone on to become wonderful therapy dogs as well. All of our dogs/parents are tested for known genetic problems in the breed.
All of our pet/companion puppies go on spay/neuter written contracts. We have the right to reserve and choose which home is best for each dog/pup. We do NOT sell any puppies for breeding to any commercial pet shops
We are currently members of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association and Great Salt Lake Training Club. Thank you for stopping by; we hope you enjoy your stay!
