September 2013:  TinkR-Bell earns her Grand Champion title




We are very pleased to announce that Scandal  ( Herdabout Through The Grapevine CGN RN AGMXJ AGI )  placed in the Top Dogs In Canada for agility in 2011 :

a)  Top 10 Dogs in Canada (all breed)
Scandal finished in 6th place.

b)  Top 5 Dogs in Canada by jump height in Jumpers With Weaves
Scandal finished in 4th place (beating out last year's top agility dog in Canada 2010, who took 5th place in this category for 2011).


c)  Top 5 Dogs in Canada from the Breed (Shetland sheepdogs), Scandal finished in 4th place.

Up until the end of 2011 (when these accomplishments were completed)
Rebecca and Scandal had trained exclusively with us here at Herdabout K-9 Academy, and the teaching of the running contact on the A frame really brought up Scandal's Yards Per Second over her standings for 2010.


Rebecca and Scandal did an awesome job in 2011. We quite expect this young team will do even better with their placements in the top dogs in Canada standings for 2012 and beyond.   Here is a you tube video of Rebecca and Scandal training at Hedabout K-9 Academy :   Link to video


Sophie  ( Herdabout The Speed Of White )  received her ATChC at just 2 years of age.  Sophie's first Q was June 25th 2011.  Her First Title was August 29th, 2011.  AND ... her ATChC was acheived on September 9th 2012.  So it only took around 14 months to go from ADC to ATChC and that was mostly trialing just locally at trials hosted by Morning Star. 


Sophie has been really steady and she is getting faster and faster all the time.  Dawn Chisholm has done an outstanding job training and handling this very young and super smart Herdabout Sheltie


A big CONGRATULATIONS to a job well done !

Herdabout Tri The Cruz Control  ( aka Cruz )  earned his ATChC this past weekend (September 8 & 9, 2012) with the awesome handling of his owner Karen Jackson-Izzard


Karen and Cruz also took first place in the 2012 Canada East AAC Regionals.  We are so proud of this amazing team and their well earned accomplishments. 


Way to go Karen & Cruz !!!

Herdabout Born Bi Solar Winds is a budding herding star.  This Tuvok X Tazer puppy has inherited some great herding instinct through his strong working pedigree.  We are very excited for his owner Terri Austin-Beech in Alberta and all the performance sports that this puppy will be trained for ...along with the ability to earn his Canadian conformation championship.

At Herdabout Shelties our goal is to breed Shetland Sheepdogs who are structurally and mentally sound, with well balanced bodies and movement, that can perform in all venues (Agility Obedience, Herding, Tracking, Conformation) but who also can be just a sweet and loving family companion, or therapy dog.


At Herdabout Shelties we believe that health, structure and temperament are the most valued components in a breeding program.  Therefore we will not eliminate a perfectly excellent quality Sheltie from our breeding program simply because the dog may be considered by some to be "mismarked" in colour.  We are founders of a promotional group called SIT = "Shelties In True Colours" firmly believing that these colours should be allowed in the conformation show ring because they are in the genes.  This video shows some of the award winning Herdabout Shelties that are Shelties in True Colours : youtube video link.


Herdabout Shelties are regularly competing in Conformation, Agility, Rally-O and Obedience Trials.  Please look around our website and see what our dogs have accomplished with us, and with others who own a Shetland Sheepdog from Herdabout Shelties Reg'd.
