The Sheltie-Kee is a mix between a Keeshond and a Shetland Sheepdog. Both are outgoing and friendly, with a hard working, herding breed attitude. This dog likes to help out, they are not content to just sit and look pretty. They want to help you carry things, or dig in the garden, and they will happily round up the cat or the kids for you! Don't leave them to sit and pine - add a bit of spice into their day with a few of the activities we have listed here. The Sheltie-Kee is a vocal dog and loves to talk and possibly sing along with you! They love interactive games and are keen to learn new tricks. Lots of praise and a few small rewards go a long way toward encouraging this dog. Use your imagination and make every day a fun day for you and your dog.
Your Sheltie-Kee loves being with you and being part of your life. Rather than leaving them home alone, take them with you when you can. Even if that means you have to brush up on their social skills and manners, it will be well worth your effort. These days many establishments are extending the welcome mat to people and their pets. Accepting pets with their people is a way of increasing business! Always check before you go anywhere though, as it is better that your pet remain at home with a new toy, than to sit in a baking hot car in the sun while they wait for you to return.
