     Kennebec Valley Shetland Sheepdog Club was organized on January 1, 1997 as a specialty club serving the Central Maine area. Membership is not restricted to a particular area, but we’ve delineated an area of within a 50 mile radius of Augusta to serve as our membership base.

The objectives of the Club are:  

     To encourage and promote quality in the breeding of purebred Shetland Sheepdogs, to urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club as the standard by which Shetland Sheepdogs shall be judged, to do all in it’s power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging good sportsmanship competition at all functions, and to provide educational materials and seminars to enrich our members knowledge.

     Club members' interests vary from competing in conformation, obedience trials, agility trials, and therapy dog training and work to judging the above venues.

     Kennebec Valley Shetland Sheepdog Club is a member of the Federation of Maine Dog Clubs, Inc.

General Information

    Members consist of those interested in all facets of this wonderful breed from pet ownership, performance venues such as Obedience, Agility, Rally O and Herding, to Breed Conformation. As members of the Kennebec Valley Shetland Sheepdog Club, we pledge to protect the integrity of the Shetland Sheepdog breed, promote the improvement of the breed in accordance with the breed standard and further the interest in appreciation and understanding of the breed.

Some of the members' benefits are as follows:

•Reduced rate at all clinics and seminars hosted by the club. (We recently held clinics in    Agility, Rally O and Grooming.)

Club Newsletter  filled with information pertaining to our breed; upcoming events such as eye clinics, matches, shows, plus informative articles. We also hold a Specialty match every year.

•Members meet monthly at a central location and enjoy "get togethers" with such things as pot luck lunches and guest speakers on a variety of dog related subjects. Seasonal activities always include an annual Christmas party and an Awards Banquet. If the mood strikes, we also have a Halloween party! J Occasionally we meet at members' homes too!

•We hold annual fund raisers which include auctions, sale of sheltie calendars, Yankee Candles, a raffle and clinics/seminars. These events serve to support the club and the important work we do in sheltie rescue.

    Membership requires attendance at two meetings, compliance with Club By Laws and the Breeders Code of Ethics and a completed, signed and sponsored application. Attending meetings allows you to meet potential sponsors and get to see what we are all about.

    For more information, please contact any member listed in the contact info on the main page of this website. We hope that you will join us and look forward to meeting you!
