INQUIRE ABOUT  the complete Volume including  SHOWING, HERDING, BREEDING, GENETICS, PUPPY CARE & EVALUATION. We need to hear if you want this revision. If enough people show interest we will complete this volume, but we need at least 500 people willing to pre-order. Watch here for more information. At this time it appears that there is insufficient interest in Part I to continue with the two volumes, although we may print Part II and offer it at the same time as the complete book.  Please contact us and let us know if you are interested in either Part II alone or the complete edition. We will place you on a mailing list to receive further information when the book is ready.


WE NEED ACTION PHOTOS  OF PERFORMANCE DOGS, PHOTOS OF CURRENT TOP WINNERS, TOP PRODUCERS, AND PARTICULARLY DUAL OR TRIPLE CHAMPIONS AND PERFORMANCE CHAMPIONS to use in these editions.  Photos can be emailed. We need high resolution jpg or tif files 300 dpi and at least 4 x 6 inches, up to 8 x 10 inches. Please email one dog per email with registered name of the Sheltie, titles, owner’s name(s), breeder, and any other pertinent information such as photographer’s name, important show wins, record setting wins, etc.  Send the photos as attachments in jpg or tif format, not as links to an online album, video, etc.  We will acknowledge their receipt.  If sending more than one dog, it would be helpful to have them in separate emails, or coded in some manner for easy identification.

    This is a wonderful volume for the novice sheltie owner. I have an original book that has been my standard since my first sheltie. I highly recommend it. Jackie Kambouris.

    I wish they had published Vol 2 even for a limited run !!!

    Have you considered publishing to kindle? There are many Indie publishers out there.

  4. It is too expensive and too difficult to produce a book with lots of formatting and photos as an ebook, plus it is too easily pirated.
