These days, many dog lovers agree that it is best to get your Shetland Sheepdog puppy from a reputable rescue, or a caring breeder who is committed to the breed. If you choose to get your Sheltie puppy from a breeder, you’ll want to be sure to get the puppy exposed to lots of new places and people.
At times, that can be difficult to do. After all, you probably take your Sheltand Sheepdog puppy to a puppy class, but that’s only one day a week, and you may find that your dog is meeting the same dogs and people over and over again, and in the same location. To socialize your puppy, it may be better to expose him to many new people and places, after he’s gotten his necessary shots, of course.
