Silverthaw Shelties we hope you enjoy your visit.
The purpose of our homepage is to display to fellow dog enthusiasts
our dogs and hopefully share some information that was gratefully shared with us
since our introduction into the world of dogs and dog shows.
Silverthaw Shelties is located in St. John's, Newfoundland,
Canada. St. John's is the oldest and most easterly City in North America.
Silverthaw Shelties draws its name from a dictionary of
Silverthaw n. A condition of the weather in which freezing
rain deposits a coating of ice on exposed objects; the gradual deposits of ice
on country side, trees, etc. during a freezing rain.
Silverthaw can be a very beautiful weather condition, but a
very dangerous condition at the same time. We feel this can also apply to dogs,
while a dog can be visually pleasant to the eye and a beautiful worker, they can
be dangerous in the wrong hands.
Our goal is to establish a selective breeding program that produces healthy companions
with sound minds and bodies that conforms to the breed standard. We are members
in good standing with
the Canadian Kennel Club,
Canadian Shetland Sheepdog Association and the
(all breed) Kennel Club. We actively participate in obedience,
agility and conformation training, exhibition and trialing.
