“Should you wish to own a dog that is a good companion, loyal, intelligent, full of fun and small enough to suit almost every household, then the Sheltie is the breed for you.
The Sheltie’s brain is amongst the most highly developed of all canine breeds, making them easy to train, whilst still retaining a mind of their own. They are extremely inquisitive and will watch whatever you are doing – as if to try and understand our behaviour and reason for doing things. The normal dog tricks are not enough for the Sheltie, they will develop their own, which are a source of pleasure for their owners, constantly finding new ways to make them laugh".
