Maplecove Shelties is situated in the beautiful Brandywine Valley of Delaware on an acre just minutes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland. We have been active in showing dogs for the past nineteen years and are a member of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association, Shetland Sheepdog Club of Greater Baltimore, and secretary and member of the Interstate Shetland Sheepdog Club. Our dogs are specialty winners and have proven themselves in the show ring, performance ring, as therapy dogs, and lovable family companions.

We keep our numbers very small in order to give them the attention they deserve. All of our dogs live in our home, and can be found hogging the couch or bed on a regular basis. They are rarely alone since I work out of my house and spend their days running the fenced in acre, playing hide-and-go-seek with our playground equipment, or lounging in the office chewing their favorite toy.

Each litter of Sheltie puppies is carefully planned and we perform all the proper health tests such as hips, eyes and thyroid on the parents before breeding. We thoroughly research temperaments on both sides of the pedigree to ensure loving and stable dogs that can excel at whatever is asked of them. As a responsible breeder with the highest standards, we abide by the standard set forth by the American Shetland Sheepdog Association in hopes of producing beautiful dogs of sound structure and stable temperaments.

We encourage you to browse our site to learn more about us. Enjoy your stay!

Mazey takes another specialty major reserve at the Tri-State Shetland Sheepdog Club under Judge Brenda Miramon.

Also our new puppy, "Alexa" co-owned with breeder Carol Howell, receives a BOS to Best Puppy at the Granite State Shetland Sheepdog Club, and made it down to the last 4 out of 16 puppies at the Central VA Shetland Sheepdog Club the weekend before.


Mazey has picked up 7 points in very limited showing this summer. She also has received a specialty major reserve under Glenda Henson at the Colonial Shetland Sheepdog Club show, and a specialty reserve under Joan Liebes at the Harrisburg Shetland Sheepdog Specialty.

Mattix has had a few litters on the ground, and one of his daughters is already pointed from the puppy class. He passes on his wonderful zest for life, and quite a few of his kids are training in all venues. We look forward to seeing what they will accomplish in the future!


Our dogs did us proud at the 2018 ASSA National Specialty this year:

Jake won his 9-12 Veteran Dog Class under judge Hector Hector and made the cut in Best of Breed under judge Brian Cleveland

Mazey placed 3rd in the Open Blue class under judge Kathy Ryan


We are VERY excited to announce that Jen has started her own Sheltie magazine, and created it from start to finish all herself. We hope to publish it once a year, with a special feature in the Fall. If you are interested, check out the SHELTIE ANNUAL.
