ARANO SHETLAND SHEEPDOGS
We are simply a family with a passion for dogs. Dogs have always been pets in our lives. We once had, as pets, a German Shepherd, a Samoyed, a Basset Hound and a Miniature Poodle.
Since the turn of the century, it has been the Shetland Sheepdog (or Sheltie) and the family is a team.
Jeffrey, that's me. I handle most of the admnistration for the team and work with obedience and herding. Irene, that's my wife. She's the carer and groomer of our Shelties. When she finds the time, she'd teach the Shelties to do tricks. Errol, he's my younger son. He's the handler in the show ring. Not only does he handle our Sheltie, he also lends a hand to some of our friends to handle their Welsh Corgees (Pembrook), Swedish Vallhunds, and Belgian Shepherds.
Of course, the important members of our team are our dogs. Shadow a sable and white female sheltie and her pups CJ and Kelsie. While CJ passed away at age 6 - losing the battle with lymphoma, Kelsie's pups Marshall and Summer make up our current show team.
