KC (Kennel Club)

ESSA (English Shetland Sheepdog Association)

Crufts - The Kennel Club

Note: The Kennel Club has the copyrite on the standard, but is nearly identical to FCI #88 of which the KC conforms to the FCI, save formatting. American & Canadian standards, both, do not conform.

There are nine breed clubs in the United Kingdom:

  1. Eastern Counties Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS, CZ;
  2. English Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS, TC, RC, CZ, AG;
  3. Mid Western Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS, RC;
  4. Northern Counties Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS, CZ;
  5. Scottish Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS;
  6. Shetland Sheepdog Club of Northern Ireland, BS;
  7. Shetland Sheepdog Club of North Wales, BS;
  8. Shetland Sheepdog Club of Wales, BS;
  9. Yorkshire Shetland Sheepdog Club, BS, CZ.

Information above obtained from: Collie.net

On a global level, by majority, the standard for the Shetland Sheepdog is that of the FCI #88. The Fédération Cynologique Internationale was created on May 22nd, 1911 with the aim to promote and protect cynology and purebred dogs by any means it considers necessary.

The Federation disappeared due to the first World War and in 1921 , the Société Centrale Canine de France and the Société Royale Saint-Hubert re-created it. The new articles of association were adopted on April 10th, 1921 and on March 5th, 1968 , the FCI got the legal personality by decree.
