SUMMERLOVE has become a source of quality Shetland Sheepdogs, known for their genetic purity and overall beauty. Our love of this wonderful breed remains behind all of our accomplishments and endeavors. Our goal has always been to produce intelligent, healthy Shelties with exceptional temperament and with a very recognizable look. We are extremely fortunate to own a breed that is so versatile. A breed that can compete in all rings and avenues, while retaining the true Sheltie character that originally attracted us to this wonderful breed.

Through the years our Shelties have provided us with a great deal of love, in addition to the highlights we have experienced in the show ring. We have been privileged to be owned by some of what we feel are the best Shetland Sheepdogs. We achieved in our breeding program some outstanding individuals. Including Best In Show, Best In Specialty Show and National Winners.

Our philosophy has always been to help each dog attain their genetic potential. We breed very selectively, and breed to the ideals of the standard. Prior to breeding we screen each animal for genetic disorders. Every dog has his forte and we strive to work each dog in the fields they enjoy and excel in. Our dogs have fun in several areas: in the past: conformation, obedience and a drill team, at present conformation and agility. We also participate in therapy visits to a local nursing home.

We play great emphasis on good health. Our own mothers are saying:"You are what you Eat". Why does the quality of food make a difference in our pet's health? Simply put, food is fuel, and life does not exist without it. We believe that the strength of our dogs immune system, its resistance to disease, and its quality of life all depend on the type and quality of food they consume. Therefore we feel very comfortable in feeding a homemade all Natural Diet.

All our Shelties live with us in our house and are our beloved companions first, providing us with endless hours of love and affection. Interacting with visitors and family alike. We offer ongoing support to new puppy owners and invite everyone back for visits. Al's coffee is always on. Whether you are looking for a quality companion to share your life with or a new show prospect, you may ask us any questions regarding our Shetland Sheepdogs. Please feel free to contact us.

Our goal is not to breed the most champions, or have the number one show dog, it is to learn and grow together with others for the welfare of our animals.

The joy is in the JOURNEY.
