Hey, I'm Camilla

A sheltie called Lassie came into my life when I was seven years old and I’ve been in love with the breed ever since. As a child, I desperately wanted to be able to go into a shop and buy everything with a sheltie on it. I rarely found them on products; when I did, it was a limited selection and the same designs over and over. I vowed that one day I would find a way to get shelties onto more products. With my background in graphics, book design, and photography I’ve been able to make those dreams finally become reality.

I started I Love Shelties with the intention of using my skills to create new products featuring shelties–the kind of products I wanted to buy myself but couldn’t find.

From there, the project has grown and in 2020 I launched the I Love Shelties Annual. The book is a yearly publication that celebrates the breed, featuring stories and photos from sheltie lovers worldwide with proceeds donated to a new charity each year.

In 2023, I will launch our first campaign to help build awareness and increase the breed’s representation and introduce our first I Love Shelties Ambassadors.

I have owned shelties for over 25 years. I have had the pleasure of welcoming five wonderful shelties into my family to date and have done obedience, agility and scent work training with them.

Our current pack consists of Mia, Teddy and Talia who you can find on social media as Shelties By The Sea. When I’m not walking the dogs I am a coach, mentor, creativity facilitator and writer.
