Top of the Class!
I just wanted to let you know that after only 10 days of working my way through your Sheltie Savvy with Milo, he can already sit and lay down on command. He’s also doing really great at walking to heel. I take Milo to a local puppy class once a week and the teacher always chooses Milo and me to show the others how it’s done. I’m so proud of my lovely boy! Thank you.

Dear Sheltie Lover,

How would you like the perfect Sheltie – well-behaved and happy - in just 11 days? A Sheltie that really listens to what you want, respects you and is a joy to own?

And wouldn’t you feel great if you could achieve this in a way that is totally risk-free, stress-free and fun for both you and your dog – and takes just two 10 minute sessions a day of your time?

If so, I know you’ll find this letter to be extremely valuable because what I’m about to tell you will blast away many common misconceptions about this special breed and reveal the astonishing truth: namely, that there is a right way and a wrong way to getting the best from, and for, your Sheltie.

Perfect family pet or noisy, neurotic nuisance?

Hi, my name’s Maria Hall. I’m not a professional dog trainer or anything fancy but I am mad about Shelties and share my life with Lola, a beautiful tri-coloured bitch.

If you’re anything like me, I’m guessing that what attracted you to Shelties in the first place was a combination of two things: first that Shetland Sheepdogs are just amazing looking dogs and second the commonly shared view that – with their compact size and gentle nature – Shelties make the perfect family pet.

For me, this amazing combination made the question as to whether to buy my own Sheltie a no-brainer. But, as I soon found out, all is not quite as it seems…

Okay, there’s no doubting that Shelties are gorgeous dogs: with their striking markings, softly plumed coat and happy wagging tail…Who can resist? But what few people will tell you is that these dogs have distinct behaviour patterns hard-wired into their brains that make them very different from any other dog.

Or, to put it another way,

If you fail to understand what makes your Sheltie tick, you’ll be tearing your hair out with frustration.

I know, because I found out the hard way.

Allow me to go back to the beginning…

I first brought Lola home when she was only 7 weeks old. I’d always had dogs in the family as a child (although never a Sheltie) and I applied exactly the same training methods to Lola that I remembered my parents using with our family dogs.

An all-too-common problem

Imagine my shock and frustration when, far from becoming the delightful, happy and well-behaved pet I’d always longed for, Lola became nervous, clingy, destructive and, to be honest, just a nuisance.

In the first 6 months alone, she:

  • Urinated (and worse) all over my floors and even on my couch, even though I sternly told her off. I used newspaper and even special training pads, but nothing seemed to work.

  • Barked continuously every time I let her out into the yard – my neighbours weren’t impressed.

  • Chewed her way through her expensive wicker dog basket, one blanket, two remote controls and a cell phone, despite the fact that I gave her plenty of toys of her own.

  • Cried and whimpered whenever I was out of her sight.

  • Dug great holes in my yard.

  • Frequently ran away when I let her off the leash and would not come back, in particular chasing after anything that moved.

  • Constantly chased after my children, jumping up at them, mouthing them and generally being a nuisance.

  • Got completely stressed out every time I took her out in the car, barking, jumping around and frequently soiling the seats.

  • Refused to walk nicely by my side whenever I was in a busy area – constantly pulling on the leash and trying to hide behind my legs.

  • Stole food from the kitchen table when no one was looking.

Sound familiar? If you’re already a Sheltie owner, I’m prepared to bet my bottom dollar that by now you’re beginning to mutter “Tell me about it!” because what I know now, is that all of these behaviours are very common in Shelties.

If you’re not yet a Sheltie owner, you might find Lola’s list of escapades quite amusing but, I can tell you, I was at my wit’s end. Lola was making my life a misery and I felt I couldn’t trust her with anything. I knew something had to be done.

I started by looking in almost all the corner bookstores around. I found many books authored by so-called ‘dog experts’, bought them happily and started reading. But when I applied the tips given, many of them just didn’t seem to work.

Most of the books I read didn’t work…because they were dog books, NOT Sheltie books

I quickly came to the conclusion that either Lola was a doggy freak or these so-called dog experts couldn’t possibly have ever had a Sheltie of their own. And desperate though I was, I wasn’t ready to give up on Lola yet so I chose to start the long process of trying to find out more about Shelties, and here’s what I did:

  • Over the course of a few months I tracked down and communicated with 327 Sheltie lovers around the World, using internet forums and chat rooms to get their input and learn from their experiences.

  • I spent many evenings in front of my computer searching for and reading every article I could find about Shelties.

  • I spent time with 2 professional dog trainers who had specific experience of training Shelties and were able to give me the low-down on Sheltie behaviour problems and how to cure them and also simple but effective methods to specifically train Shelties to sit, stay, lay down, come and more, and...

  • I spoke to my vet and local veterinarian training hospital who gave me great advice on keeping a Shetland Sheepdog healthy and how to prevent and cure common (and less common Sheltie illnesses and diseases.

It was hard work, but boy was it worth it – and what an eye-opener!

I quickly found out from many other Sheltie owners that I wasn’t alone with my frustrations, which was a huge relief to me – and them.

When we brought Daisy home I was expecting to have to deal with a puppy that was full of energy and needed lots of attention. What I wasn’t prepared for was a dog who would hide behind the sofa every time we had visitors and growl if we tried to tempt her out. It wasn’t exactly relaxing. After reading Sheltie Savvy I realised that Daisy felt threatened – and all because of the way we were behaving towards her! As soon as we made some simple changes to our daily routine, Daisy became a different dog and now she’s always first at the door to greet our guests!

And what I discovered from the dog trainers was a real surprise. You see, it turns out Shetland Sheepdogs aren’t always the easy option so many of us are led to believe. What I hadn’t realised is that Shelties have distinct behaviour patterns and that if these aren’t acknowledged, taken into account and dealt with in the right way, a Sheltie can quickly become a neurotic, fearful and destructive pet. I had been doing it all wrong – and I can’t tell you how guilty I felt.

The good news is that through my research, I also discovered that there is a simple, effective and kind way of communicating with and training your Sheltie that taps into the way their minds work and has them desperate to please you. The results are phenomenal and I was amazed: after only 11 days of consistently applying the knowledge I had learned, Lola was already becoming a different dog. She was so much happier and calmer and really listened to what I asked of her. Two months later and she was the happy, well-behaved and fun dog I had always dreamed of. I was so happy.

I knew then that I had to share the information I had learned with as many Sheltie lovers as possible so that these beautiful dogs and their owners wouldn’t have to go through the same stresses that Lola and I did. And so I wrote:

Sheltie Savvy

‘Learn How to Make Your Shetland Sheepdog
Happy, Healthy and Obedient’

Unlike many other dog books, ‘Sheltie Savvy’ contains all the useful knowledge, advice and tips I learned from Sheltie experts and Sheltie lovers (like you and I), rather than just generic advice about dogs. It’s jam-packed with the most effective tips and techniques for looking after your Shetland Sheepdog.

Put simply, it contains everything you need to know about finding and living happily with your Sheltie - whether it be a puppy that needs training or an older dog with learned behaviours.

At last, fast and effective solutions to common Sheltie problems

‘Sheltie Savvy’ is easy to read and understand with step-by-step instructions for looking after your Sheltie.


  • When to give your Sheltie attention and when to ignore him – and why this is critical to good behaviour.

  • How to talk to your Sheltie so he will listen – it’s all to do with tone of voice but does not involve shouting.

  • How to show your Sheltie who’s boss - just by the way you hold him

Thanks to your practical advice, Soozie is far happier...
The problem we had Soozie was not that she was too dominant but rather too submissive – or so it seemed! Whenever we met any other dogs at the park she would instantly role onto her back in a ‘surrender’ gesture but then, as soon as any dog got a bit too close, she would just go for them. She sounded really evil and we were worried another dog was going to get hurt. Thanks to your practical advice, Soozie is far happier playing with other dogs now and we can enjoy our walks again

After just 2 weeks of working with your suggestions Bibo is far more responsive...
I knew Shelties were bred to herd sheep but I didn’t expect Bibo to also chase after squirrels, birds, bikes, footballs, my children and the neighbor’s cat! Once he had something in his sights it was impossible to get his attention and we had no choice but to chase after him. The only good thing about it was that we got very fit in the first month! However, I was really worried that Bibo was going to get into danger so it was such a relief to be able to email you and get such sound support and advice. After just 2 weeks of working with your suggestions Bibo is far more responsive to our calls and I feel like we have much more control. God bless you!

You Can Teach An Old Dog New Tricks...
When Poppi came to live with us she was in a terrible state. She was 6 years old and had been at the rescue centre for almost 12 months because whenever anyone came to look at her she would slink away to the back of her pen and growl. Not surprisingly, no-one gave her a second look in. The rescue centre thought she had been ill-treated by her previous owner. But I felt so sorry for her that I knew I had to give her a chance... It’s taken a lot of patience and effort on my part but, 4 months on and with your fantastic support and advice, Poppi is now like a new dog and I count myself very lucky to have found her – and you!

Thank you so much for the great advice...
“Hi there. I just thought I’d let you know how Monty is getting on. Since I emailed you we sat down as a family and discussed what we needed to do to stop his aggressive nipping. It became clear from what you had said that most of Monty’s bad behaviour had arisen directly as a result of the way in which the kids were interacting with him. Since we’ve introduced the new games you suggested the nipping has virtually stopped and yet it’s great to see that Monty and the kids can still have fun together. Thank you so much for the great advice – I’ll be recommending Sheltie Savvy to the owners of any Shelties I meet!”

Enjoy peace of mind – and an unbeatable offer

Okay, tell me if I’m wrong, but I’m guessing that by now you’re probably thinking “Hey, this promise of a happy, healthy and obedient Sheltie sounds like just what I need but, you know what, I don’t know who the heck this Maria woman is and I’m worried about being taken for a ride.”

And you know what? I don’t blame you. I feel exactly the same about the many offers for different things I see made on the internet every day. There are a lot of people out there who are just after a quick buck and really don’t care about the quality of their product - or about what their customers think.

So, just to make sure you’d feel 100% comfortable about choosing my SHetland Sheepdog guide, I sat down and thought really hard about what I personally would expect by way of reassurance from someone selling to me – and believe you me, I’m quite a hard task-master!

So, here’s what I came up with - and what I’m happy to offer you:

  • Money-back guarantee: you’ve already read some of the many testimonials from Sheltie lovers like you who have followed the tips and techniques in my guide with amazing success: achieving happy, stress-free and rewarding relationships with their Shelties. So here’s what I’d like you to do: I’m so confident that ‘Sheltie Savvy’ will make a massive and positive impact on your Sheltie that I want you to use the guide for yourself for 90 days with no risk whatsoever. That’s right! Try out the suggested training methods and solutions to behavioural problems with your Sheltie and if they don’t work, or for some reason they’re not suitable, get you money automatically refunded in full – no questions asked.

  • Free and unlimited email advice : Check this out... The price you pay includes unlimited, ongoing free advice and support by email. That’s right, you heard! I don’t just send you the Sheltie Savvy and abandon you. Oh no. You can email me anytime with any query you have about your Sheltie’s health, training or behaviour – as many times as you like - and I promise I’ll promptly get back to you. Let’s say you don’t quite understand something in the book, or the advice doesn’t seem to be working, simply drop me an email and I’ll do my very best to help you out. How’s that for service? And I tell you something, I don’t know of anyone else offering this level of customer satisfaction – anywhere!

  • Amazing value for money: While I was doing my research for this Sheltie guide, I was shocked at the prices some of my competitors are trying to charge for their books about Shelties. Why not take a look yourself? I can tell you something, it’s not the kind of money I had available to spend.

    The way I see it, I want as many people as possible to learn the kind and fun way to living happily with their Shelties. Shetland Sheepdogs are such special dogs and it breaks my heart to hear stories from people who have become so frustrated and desperate that they’ve had their Sheltie re-homed.

    I want all Sheltie owners to understand how the Shetland Sheepdog’s mind works - that there is a right way and a wrong way to looking after these beautiful dogs – so that fewer Shelties fall off the rails and so that all owners can experience the same pleasure and joy that I have experienced with my own dog.

With that in mind, it’s important to me that this guide is affordable for everyone. So I’m making no apologies for not offering any gimmicky discounts; the price you see is the price you pay…

“Sheltie Savvy” is yours for just $27.75 – that’s less than the cost of a family trip to the movies!

And if it saves you just one trip to the vet or one pair of chewed up shoes, you’re already on to a winner.

But that’s not all…
