Originally I was from W.A When I first Established Sharndah kennels back in 1982
since then i have moved my kennels to Albury NSW ( Australia )
We don't breed often but, when we do we plan our litters out very carefully, we will only use Shelties that have been fully HEALTH tested in our Breeding Program so we know we are using the soundest of dogs............... We have some up coming young hopefuls who we are quiet excited about the future with them.
Whilst incorporating some Australian and NA lines into our breeding program we still aim to produce a sheltie that can do it all. We breed for Soundness, Type, Temperament all of which are very important in the breed today.
All our Shelties are Judged according to the standard used in Australia....Our shelties are winning under Breed Specialist from the UK, Ireland, USA , Canada and Australia.
While you are breeding for physical conformation, you also need to breed for temperament and FREEDOM from genetic disease. Do NOT contribute to the tragic world of diseased and or/ bad tempered dogs. Understand the genetic problems found within our breed, test for them, then AVOID having them in your breeding program !
Have a thorough knowledge of your bitch’s strong and weak points, entering her in shows is the best way to assess her qualities and faults. Once you have detailed knowledge of your dogs traits, look for males that will help eliminate or balance those flaws within your bitch’s. Getting familiar with each of the potential parent’s bloodlines and what they produce.
Our Goal is Breed for Improvement
