Shetland Sheepdog


The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Victoria Inc. is dedicated to the well-being of our chosen breed, the Shetland Sheepdog, as both companions and performance dogs. Our Club provides a variety of activities for our members, including Championship and Open Conformation Shows, Obedience and Rally O Trials, Member's Competitions, and a "Fun Day" where dogs and humans can socialize and play games. To ensure the safety of our Shelties, the club also supports breeders and owners through the promotion of electric fences donated by Pet Stop Company, and by striving to eliminate the hereditary disease. We welcome anyone who has a Sheltie or simply enjoys the breed to join our Club and be a part of our community.

The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Victoria Inc was formed as a club in 1961. The club currently has many members from all states of Australia, as well as overseas, including NZ and the UK. Amongst other purposes, the club in particular aims to promote and raise the standards of breeding, rearing, keeping, training and general welfare of dogs, in particular the Shetland Sheepdog and to promote and encourage the exhibition and breeding of Shetland Sheepdogs which meet the ANKC approved Breed Standard.

The main activities that the club provides includes: a Championship Conformation Show, an Open Conformation Show, an Obedience and Rally O Trial, Member's Competitions, a "Fun Day" where many of our members get together to socialise and play games (both dogs and humans) and other dog related activities.

The club has many types of members who either breed and/or show Shelties, who do obedience with their Shelties, or who have Shelties as companions. The club is for anyone to join who has a Sheltie or simply enjoys the breed. Members receive a monthly newsletter to keep them up to date on club activities and other Sheltie related business. Why not become a member? We would love you to join and look forward to meeting you at one of club's many activities.
