Dogs of this breed are playful and friendly, emotionally attached to people, therefore they are good companions for adults and children. Sociability is expressed in the willingness to follow the owner, participate in games and walks, express emotions with sounds and body movements. This is a rather “talkative” breed, so if you are very fond of silence, then either get yourself a pet of a different breed or begin to delicately accustom your Sheltie to restraint in barking from a young age.
At the same time, the dog will not impose its society. If they refuse to play and communicate with Sheltie, he will take a position of detachment and will patiently wait for the moment when the owner deigns to pay attention to him.
