Auckland, March 2011 -, the website dedicated to the love of Shetland Sheepdogs, is proud to announce the launch of a new Sheltie Forum.

The forum is free to register and enables fans of the website to congregate online to discuss all things Sheltie. The most popular forum topics already are:

  • General Sheltie Discussion
  • Your Sheltie Photos
  • Health and Grooming
  • Behavior and Temperament
  • Food and Nutrition

After a soft launch last month, the Sheltie Forum already has 100 active members who contribute to both playful and serious discussions on this unique dog breed.

Rebecca Turner, creator of Sheltie Planet, commented: "When our relatively young Facebook Page started nearing 5,000 fans, I knew it was time to create an official forum. There are a heck of a lot of Sheltie lovers out there!

"I'm so delighted they can now come together in this online community. While plenty of people still share in the fun via our hugely popular Sheltie Planet Facebook Page, the new forum provides a better platform for in-depth discussion, questions and answers, and personal stories. It's not only a great way to meet and share in the joys of other Sheltie owners, it's also a support network for those who have lost Shelties too."

The new free forum can be found at:
