In a perfect world, a Sheltie should be introduced to children during puppyhood. An adult Sheltie may have a harder time adjusting, particularly if they are very high strung (hyper). However, in most cases an adult Sheltie will adjust to children quite readily.

Children that have a pet have a lot going for them. They learn responsibility when they are required to care for the pet. Children that have a non-aggressive pet are seldom afraid of other domestic animals, and the memories they retain in adulthood can never be instilled after they grow up.

Most Shelties are quite happy when playing with the younger crowd, or watching over them so that no harm befalls them.

As a safety precaution, it should be mentioned here that a Sheltie, as with any other breed or species, should never be left alone with infants or toddlers.

 

 

SHELTIES AND CHILDREN
A Natural Mix

A Shelties' temperament is usually such that Children and Shelties are naturally good playmates together. They demand a lot of attention, and enjoy running, and playing.

What better way to satisfy this need than to let your Sheltie "baby-sit" your school aged children?
