Sunway Presentation – Shetland Sheepdogs and Collies
Specializing in Shetland Sheepdogs and rough and smooth Collies, travelling throughout the eastern US attending both specialties and all-breeds.
Nick Joines and Joel McCarty have been breeding and showing collies and shelties for over 30 years. We are located in central North Carolina. At Sunway Presentation, we take great pride in our handling of quality AKC show dogs for discriminating breeders and owners. Our presentation focuses on both the highlighting of an individual’s virtues as well as the appropriate selection of knowledgeable judges.
Although we show other breeds, we specialize in Shetland Sheepdogs and rough and smooth Collies – exhibiting every year at the Collie Club of America National Specialty (CCA) and the American Shetland Sheepdog Association National Specialty (ASSA).
We breed and exhibit our dogs for the conformation ring but many of our dogs have gone on to be excellent in therapy, herding, fast cat and agility just to name a few of the activities that the American Kennel Club has to offer.
Regarding companion animals, collies and shelties may look the same but they are actually two separate breeds with their own breed standards and qualities. (Links) Both breeds are loyal and are great with families or one on one. As a rule they get along well with both other dogs and cats.
We have put many years into our program and health and temperament are of the utmost importance to us. We begin the socialization process early as it makes a difference in these two breeds. As dog breeds go, Collie and Shelties are healthy dogs. Our puppies will have all appropriate health checks, shots and worming before going to a companion home. In the case of collies, they will also have an eye check done by a certified ophthalmologist at 8 weeks. rare, we guarantee our puppies for any congenital defects.
We are active members of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association, Collie Club of America and the Piedmont Collie Club and the Triangle Shetland Sheepdog Club.
