Shelties as a breed in general do well with cats.

However, your best bet is to find a breeder who raises her puppies with at least one cat in the house. My puppies are very kind and respectful to cats - but that's because my housecat has ...

I think it depends on the breeder - and maybe the breed. Honestly, the general public would have a lot easier time finding a GOOD breeder is more advertised better. As a pet owner, I found the best breeders unapproachable. They didn't answer their e-...

An orphan puppy can be hand raised to be a normal dog... however it should be done by a knowledgeable breeder. I know breeders who have lost the mother of the puppies shortly after she whelped them and the litter needed to be hand raised. I also have...

APRI has always used a similar method to encourge people to use their registry... they'll take an AKC registered dog and "duel register" it with APRI for free... Litter regs are a lot cheaper too... And they used to say (not sure if they still do) on...

And I would assume you're respon...

Diet can play a big role in shedding. If you're feeding a lower quality food, they usually shed more. Also, intact females tend to shed a lot more then males or spayed females.

Frequent bathing and a good diet help a lot. As does being sp...

A lot of the reason I decided to handle most of my own dogs and am so passionate about getting out to shows myself is because you learn SO much that way. I love the different seminars available at some of the specialties - and getting to talk with br...

Awww... a question I can help with!

I am currently working for a pro handler (she mainly just shows Shelties, but does occasionally take on another breed).

Here's the perks to a pro -
1) They know the judges - therefore th...
