L & M SHELTIES is a small hobby kennel located in Arundel, Maine. Our dogs are 1st and foremost family pets, as well as conformation, obedience, and therapy dogs.

Temperament and health are our #1 goal. We breed first for Temperament, Health and Conformation, and second for a balance of those ideals in our puppies and dogs. Our goal is to improve and maintain the quality of the Shetland Sheepdog breed. ?

We breed for the next generation of improvement and for the protection of the Shetland Sheepdog Breed standard defined by the American Kennel Club. We strive for excellence through a selective breeding program, to produce puppies and dogs that excel in temperament and trainability, that can excel in any situation without difficulty.

We choose dogs with pedigree's that complement each other to get the best quality dogs that we can. Dogs that are part of the family, not just "pets". We strive for the highest quality possible taking into account genetics, anatomy, conformation, temperament, and health. We don't breed just for the sake of breeding, we breed for our next "Champion SHOW DOG", or Obedience dog, or Agility Champion.
Our dogs are genetic tested for vWD3, DMS, DM, CEA, CNGA1-PRA, and MDR-1, OFA eye clearances, and OFA Hip clearances are done at age 2. Our girls are not bred before 2 years and are done breeding at 5 years old. Our puppies and dogs are not only show dogs, but also performance (agility and obedience) dogs, and also become therapy dogs as well as companion dogs.
