The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Southern California was founded in 1945 by local sheltie fanciers. SSCSC was the second sheltie club formed in the western United States. Very few people knew what a delightful companion the sheltie was as the breed was relatively rare in those days. The club's goal in those days was to educate the public about the breed and to hold dog show for the Shetland sheepdog. For many years SSCSC held only conformation shows. Obedience was added in the 60's and then Rally a few years ago. We have also held one of the first AKC herding trials in the western United States.
The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Southern CA welcomes anyone who is interested in shelties. We hold puppy picnics, matches, conformation shows and obedience and agility trials yearly.
