Auckland, New Zealand, December 09, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- A brand new website has been launched about Shetland Sheepdogs, aka Shelties, the world's sixth most intelligent dog breed.
SheltiePlanet.com is written by an adoring fan of this unique dog breed, with insights into keeping Shelties as pets. It is aimed at anyone who owns a Shetland Sheepdog or is looking for a small to medium dog that makes an excellent companion.
Shelties are loyal and affectionate herding dogs from the Shetland Islands of Scotland. They come from a long line of Scandinavian sheepdogs, only to be crossed with English Collies in the 19th and 20th centuries. This gave them the unique appearance of miniature Collies (or mini Lassie dogs) but were recognized as a separate breed by the American Kennel Club in 1911.
Becky Turner, Editor of Sheltie Planet, commented: "Shelties are a unique breed for so many reasons. From a pet owner's perspective they have extremely quirky personalities - they are sensitive to human emotions and display their own smile and Sheltie talk! As show dogs, they excel in agility trials and are highly intelligent.
"I have two Shetland Sheepdogs which inspired me to make the website. But this is not a personal blog of pet stories - this is a public resource to educate owners about the breed history, dog training, specific health problems, rescue shelters and breeders. It is also a place to share photos and videos online. The website is free to use and will feature an online store to fund its ongoing development."
SheltiePlanet.com is Becky's third hobby-based website, created using the principles of Site Build It (SBI), an education in online business taught in more than 30 colleges and universities in America. Her other websites are World-of-Lucid-Dreaming.com and Improve-Vision-Naturally.com and enable her to make a living online from her home in Auckland, New Zealand.
