About the Shetland Sheepdog Club of NJ

 

The club held its first meeting August 12, 1964, under the temporary name of The New Jersey Shetland Sheepdog Club and seventeen people were in attendance.

In 1966, the club decided on the name The Metropolitan Shetland Sheepdog Club. In 1968 the name was changed to our current name, "The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Northern New Jersey". 

We held our first Specialty Show and Sweepstakes on May 27, 1973, in conjunction with The Plainfield Kennel Club. Twice a year, the Shetland Sheepdog club holds an AM and PM Specialty Show. One being an Independent Specialty and the other is a Designated Specialty. 

April 1, 1979 was the first Obedience Specialty and now the club holds two Obedience Specialties in March.

The Shetland Sheepdog Club has always been a continually active club; we have speakers at our meetings, sponsor seminars and public relations events. The Sheltie Club is a resource for all who own Shelties. We also hold events that are helpful to all pet owners, regardless of the breed. 

The membership is open to all who love and own shelties from breeders, conformation and performance exhibitors and companion dog owners. 

If you love shelties, we would love for you to attend our meetings and join our club.
