Sheltie Training Basics: How to
Effectively Train Your Sheltie Dog

  By Becky Turner Visit The Sheltie Forums

Sheltie training should be a relatively easy task, because the Shetland Sheepdog is the world's 6th most intelligent dog - and has a burning desire to please its owner.

The problems arise when you're not communicating how you want your Sheltie to behave - and they take it upon themselves to decide the right way.

Here you'll find many expert articles on puppy dog training to set the ground rules early, so there are no misunderstandings between you and your new pet dog. We start off with common puppy issues (like chewing, whining and housebreaking) and move on to the bad habits that dogs can develop (like barking, jumping and begging).
