Although the origins of the breed are hard to piece together, it is thought that the Shetland Sheepdog evolved from the various types of herding dogs once used extensively in Scotland and the Islands.

Malcolm Hart examines the history of the breed; Breed Standards; all aspects of ownership; health care; breeding and management; choosing, buying and training a puppy and finally a full explanation of the exhibition world.

With its beautiful abundant coat, alertness, intelligence and strength, the Sheltie makes a good working dog, a striking show dog or simply an excellent companion.
