Why We BreedFrom the beginning, our breedingpolicy has been very specific.When we began this sport, we set ourselves three guridelines/rules:1. Breed for the perfect dog2. There are no perfect dogs3. Do no harm to the breedOver the years we have strivento adhere to these ideals.
to Skyehaven and the home of Sherrie and Cam Sparling. We have been involved in the exhibition and breeding of Shetland Sheepdogs since the late 1980s, having produced more than 70 champions and numerous performance title holders since our beginning.At Skyehaven our focus has always been quality rather than quantity. All our breedings are carefully planned, often years in advance. As we breed only when we are able to retain a puppy for ourselves, we do not breed frequently, often going a year or longer between litters.All our breeding stock is carefully screened for genetic issues prior to being bred.
Our HopefulsAt Skyehaven we take the time to grow up the most promising puppiesin a litter in order to ensure theyhave the qualities we are needingfor our breeding and exhibitionpurposes. As a result, we occasionallyhave an older puppy available toan approved companion home.
Our Placement Policy All our companion puppies are sold on CKC Non-Breeding registration, and must be spayed/neutered at 7 months of age. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of any of our dogs to homes which do not meet our strict criteria
