These are the Shelties
that we have either worked with, or are presently working with, that
excel in performance sports. Some are included in our breeding
program and some are in other homes training and competing in all
sorts of venues.
Agility is one of the
things that a Herdabout Sheltie can excel in. We selectively breed
our dogs to produce not only a dog that is structurally and mentally
sound, but is a quick learner and has the personality and
temperament suited to compete at the highest levels of competition.
8 week old "Panther" (Herdabout On The Prowl) arrives at her new home in BC completely unbothered by the 2 hour car ride to the airport, the 3 hour pre boarding wait, and the 4 hour flight.
At Herdabout Shelties we go the extra mile to make sure we have the proper match of puppy to owner/handler. Using our puppy desensitivity training program we work to the best of our ability to ensure a stable, well focused puppy by exposing the puppies to the sights, sounds and textures they will encounter as adult performance dogs.
Please check out this youtube video to see what we
are talking about and watch some of our shelties in action :
Here is a sample of two of our young performance dogs in action competing at some of their first agility trials Blizzard (whom we sold to one of our students) and Scandal (with one of our teenage students).
Both of these Herdabout Shelties have gone on to be very competitive dogs in the
sport of agility.
