    I thought it would be a fun thread to see what the different heights of our shelties are.

    Be sure to measure from the front shoulders down, NOT from the top of the head.

    If your sheltie is an in between height, round up. For example, if your sheltie's height is 14.5", round up to 15."

    I realize this isn't 100% accurate but I thought it would give us a rough idea of how many of us have over or under sized shelties vs. breed standard heights (breed standard is 13" to 16").

    This poll will allow you to choose more than one option. Just click on the appropriate boxes. If you already hit vote then I think you're too late, you can only vote once.

    They are both the same height.

    You can only enter one in the same height category. That's where the spreadsheet comes in.

    B is around 16" but I couldn't get a more precise measurement than that. I think he's a little outsized. He's not particularly dainty for a sheltie, he's about 28 pounds now, and we're still working on getting the extra off.

    It is hard to get a good measurement on Greyson as he seems to be afraid of the measuring tape, but he is between 16-17 inches. I guesstimated at 16.5.
