Agile Shelties is located in Penticton, BC, Canada. We’re busy Shelties are showing in CKC conformation, obedience, CKC and CARO rally-obedience, and USDAA, NADAC, CKC & AAC agility. This kennel name presents an opportunity to branch into a direction of versatility. Our aim is to continue with lines that amplify the breed standard, possess sturdy construction with balanced movement that gets noticed in the show ring.
