The Shetland Sheepdog was a combination of all what I was looking for in a dog.
Finally and after months of waiting, my life as a “Shetland sheepdog owner” began. I went to pick up Arky, my first puppy.
Initially I did not have much time to spend with him. I played volleyball at a competitive level and the high school took a lot of time. Arky followed me to the gym and he enjoyed watching the game from the platforms. After a few years, I had to make a difficult choice. I could dedicate myself to volleyball at high levels and make a career. I had the chance for an easily great sporting future, but my heart was fixated on dogs.
So I decided to follow the passion, that I always ha and. I gave up volleyball. As ambitious as I am I could not continue in a lower level team, because my character is very competitive, I always give my best and cannot do things halfhearted.
I still was so young and had no car licence. Thanks to my mother, which did drove around. I started a series of practical experiences with Arky: puppy course, basic education course, agility dog and pet therapy operators.
I shared everything with him. He was everywhere with me such as traveling all over Italy and even abroad.
Arky was the beginning of my biggest dream to come true: my life, my work and my passion for dogs, with a boundless love for these little sheepdogs.
Today I am a student of Breeding and Healthy of animals at Veterinary Medicine in Lodi. I am a dog trainer of 3rd level FISC for agility dog, I am also working as a dog sitter and wedding dog site since lot of years.
In August 2017 Olly gave birth to my first litter.
In spring 2019 I received the confirmation of my shetland sheepdog kennel name FILLORY.
I will always be grateful to my family, my mother in particular. I thank my boyfriend Jacopo for the support and patience with me.
