Shetland Sheepdogs is a book in Barron's series of Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals. Shetland Sheepdogs, also known as Shelties, were originally bred as herding dogs. These handsome work dogs are closely related to the larger Collie, which they closely resemble. Loyal, affectionate, and responsive to their owner, they are now popular as pets and companions. Written especially to introduce inexperienced and prospective pet owners to the pleasures and duties of pet care, Barron's Complete Pet Owner’s Manuals also make fine guides to pet care for older children. These heavily illustrated books are filled with helpful information on purchasing, housing, feeding, health careand where applicable, grooming and training pets. Each book is individually written by an experta trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. These manuals cover every popular dog and cat breed, as well as bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even exotics, such as reptiles, amphibians, and scorpions. All books have 70 or more color photos, and most also have instructive line illustrations.
