Shelhaven is a small hobby kennel which is located in Rawdon, Nova Scotia.  At Shelhaven, our first and main concern is the health of our dogs.  Our Shelties are screened for genetic disorders, such as hip dysplasia, vWD, and eye abnormalities before they are bred.  Temperament is extremely important.  Our dogs live in our home and are very much a part of our family.  They enjoy car rides and walks at parks.  All puppies are born and raised in our dining room where they are very well socialized and prepared when time comes to go to their new homes.

Our focus is to produce happy, healthy puppies that are conformationally correct with loving temperaments. Our puppies are available for conformation, obedience, and companionship. We provide written health guarantees and lifetime support.


We purchased our first sheltie at 8 weeks of age in 1993 from Linda and James Schrader of Sunnyseas Reg'd. Her name was Sunnyseas Sasha In Satin CDX, CGC, 'Sasha'. In 1994, she obtained her CD with 6 HIC's and a HIT. Her CDX title came quickly for her in 1995 with more HIC's to her credit. Sasha was a once in a lifetime girl and was perfect in every way to us. She will always be known as "the dearest" or "the princess".

In 1995, we aquired our first show girl Ch Sunnyseas Interlude Shelhaven CD "Josie".
We are members in good standing with the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), the Canadian Shetland Sheepdog Association (CSSA), the American Shetland Sheepdog Association (ASSA), and the Halifax Kennel Club (HKC).
