Our History

Our love of Shelties really began in the early 80’s with a fabulous Sheltie cross named Tramp.  Abandoned at the SPCA, he was a loyal friend and great puppy socializer.   1987 brought “Sara” Shadland This Blue’s For You, CDX into our household.  Joyce Woolridge of Shadland Shelties offered us Sara, the last daughter out of Ch. Banchory Midnight Melody.  Sara won us over with her intelligence and willingness to please.  Of course her “Princess” approach to life endeared her to us even more.  Within the year we had our second blue-merle Shadland Beyond A Shadow, CD who was an Am.Can.Ch. Sienna Catch A Dream son.    We spent several years successfully competing in obedience while at the same time showing Shelties in the  conformation ring for many of our friends.


Our interest in Shelties and conformation showing was rejuvenated in 1999 when Ch. Shadland Tremolo Bi The Book joined the household.  The addition of “Paige” was the extra push needed to refocus our energies back into Shelties by challenging ourselves to become more involved and contribute to the breed wherever possible.

Paige is our foundation and the beginning of Keystone Shelties.


Cathy is currently the President, Canadian Shetland Sheepdog Association and Secretary, Alberta Shetland Sheepdog and Collie Association.   Cindy is also an active member of both clubs.
