Maplecove Shelties is situated in the beautiful Brandywine Valley of Delaware on an acre just minutes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland. We have been active in showing dogs for the past sixteen years and are a member of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association, Shetland Sheepdog Club of Greater Baltimore, and secretary and member of the Interstate Shetland Sheepdog Club. Our dogs are specialty winners and have proven themselves in the show ring, performance ring, as therapy dogs, and lovable family companions.
We keep our numbers very small in order to give them the attention they deserve. All of our dogs live in our home, and can be found hogging the couch or bed on a regular basis. They are rarely alone since I work out of my house and spend their days running the fenced in acre, playing hide-and-go-seek with our playground equipment, or lounging in the office chewing their favorite toy.
Each litter of Sheltie puppies is carefully planned and we perform all the proper health tests such as hips, eyes and thyroid on the parents before breeding. We thoroughly research temperaments on both sides of the pedigree to ensure loving and stable dogs that can excel at whatever is asked of them. As a responsible breeder with the highest standards, we abide by the standard set forth by the American Shetland Sheepdog Association in hopes of producing beautiful dogs of sound structure and stable temperaments.
