Today June 13th , DogsWest held an open day to promote our gorgeous breed. What a fantastic turnout we had of all purebred dogs. Thank you to our marvellous committee and everyone that came to help, it is very much appreciated!

From Kirst Post 2 June 2021  
I thought I would share this with everyone, it isn't show or performance related but still very special indeed. We in WA have 2 shelties that are Story Dogs. Both boys Fergus and Rufus are bred by 2 of our own WA breeders. Fergus was bred by Jeanette Mitchell (Yasdnil) and has been a story dog for awhile now, and his owner Pat is the co-ordinator for Armadale. Rufus is newer to story dogs and was bred by Debra Simpson (Nightwood) but has recently been selected as 1 of 2 Story Dogs in WA to be sponsored by Dogswest. I would on behalf of the club like to congratulate both the breeders of these 2 dogs, this is something to be very proud of and secondly conratulations to the owners Pat & Karen for their hard work to get the boys to where they are today. The 2 boys are excellent breed ambassadors for the Shetland Sheepdog and show just how versatile our breed really is. Conratulations everyone involved.
Here is a bit about what story dog do -
When children read to a dog, the outcomes are amazing! It is a non-judgemental setting, the children's focus improves, their literacy skills increase and their confidence soars. The accepting, loving nature of dogs gives this program its magic and helps children relax, open up, try harder and have fun while reading to a friendly, calm dog. Woof!
I have added the link if you would like to check out the little profile of the boys and their owners.
Also if you know of any other WA shelties achieving great things or working in the community please let me know.
