    Hello, hello dear Sheltiefriends

    Now the time has come to join this group because I read already a lot of topics as guest.

    My name is Nadine, I am from Switzerland, at the moment 24 years old and I own two shelties - called "the brownies" :biggrin2:. One sheltie is from Germany and one is from Canada – i just love the american type sheltie!

    My, no, our biggest hobby is to do agility and other dogsport. And my shelties love it too. With my Chaim (the one from Germany, he is now 4 years old) I compete at European Open last year and it was awesome! And Raichu (my canadian boy, at the moment 1 months old) is learning all the skills for it.

    But of course there is a world beside dogsport and my dogs come with me nearly all the time.

    Here some pictures of them:

    Nadine, I love your dogs! They are very cute! I think that is very cool that you like the American type Shelties. I actually love the foxy look of the European Shelties. I don't think I will ever be able to afford to import one though!

    You mentioned agility, but what are the other dog sports you do? I compete in Flyball with my dog.. any Swiss Flyball Shelties over there? :winkgrin:

    Welcome! Your shelties are beautiful dogs. I have ancestors who came from Switzerland a long time ago, and would love to go visit your country some day.

    Hello Nadine and welcome to you and your brownies to Sheltie Nation. Thank you for the pictures, your boys are so handsome and look to be so tiny. I love the action shots, looks like they are really having a good time.
