Shelties have a high level of intelligence. According to Dr. Stanley Coren, an expert on animal intelligence, the Shetland Sheepdog is one of the brightest dogs, ranking 6th out of 132 breeds tested. His research found that an average Sheltie could understand a new command in less than 5 repetitions and would obey a command the first time it was given 95% of the time or better.

Been doing some reading
Mom says reading not only improves one mind but ones vocabulary of fine insults and sarcasm - what ever that means! The mom uses some strange words sometimes. Anyway, it has been a quiet day so I thought I would catch up on a little internet surfing. I borrowed the mom's glasses as they have an anti glare thing on them.....but woofsters they make everything look big! One of the things I was looking for was any 'famous' shelties' but I didn't really find any. But I did find this quote which I must say is 110% true......although of coarse I think we are number one in ranking but I guess sixth isn't too bad. Hope everyone is having a great week - woofitty woofs!
