Cermel and Gardengate Planned Litters

Cermel and Gardengate are 2 breeders working together in Waterloo Region Ontario. We take great diligence in how our puppies are raised. All the dogs live in the house with us, we are NOT a Kennel. Home raised in our kitchen and living rooms where someone is at home with the puppies 99% of the time. We believe the key to great temperaments is lots and lots of socialization and if a breeder is seldom home, temperaments will be lacking. We strive to breed litters and raise puppies that have good temperaments that are well suited for a show, working career or just a well-adjusted member of the family. We start off with the pups at 3 days old by using the Super Puppy Early Neurological Stimulation Exercises by the time our puppies are ready for their new homes, they have walked on many different surfaces, eaten from many different containers in many different places.  They will have been exposed to many different sounds, visual stimulations and will have played in several different areas, both inside and out.  The puppies will be handled by, exposed to, and played with by many different people.

Puppy Questionnaire

All puppies go home with a puppy pack that include a 15 pound bag of TLC dog food, a toy, a leash and collar, puppy manual, pedigree and a few other things.

We are always happy to refer you to a reputable breeder if we do not have what you are looking for.

Our puppies are out of health tested parents. Most of our dog health results are on The OFA website (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals)


Our pet puppies are sold on a non breeding contract. Current price is $2800.00  

Show/Breeding puppies are more of course because the purchaser will be breeding them in the future.

Once the deposit is received, the buyer is safely locked in to the price at that time. No increase will happen once the first deposit has been received. 

Once your application is approved a deposit of $500.00 is required to be put on our waiting list.  Please do not send a deposit before approved. Approved families will be contacted for more info.   (refundable if we do not have what you are looking for in the litter)

Puppy Questionnaire


The balance is required in full at time of transfer including a contractual consent to neuter the pet at an appropriate age.

We have worked hard with all our dogs and are proud to see the fantastic temperaments we have produced.

We have been praised by so many of our pet and show dog owners, so we know all our hard work is paying off : )

We pride ourselves on being fair and I will gladly supply you with references upon request, as we expect the same of you.

We also can recommend breeders in which we feel have the same breeding principles. ~

PLEASE do your homework and check references of breeders, there are breeders out there that can talk the talk, some have no experience and may only have 1 sheltie, some no ethics, some think they know it all. Contact the breed association for verification. (sorry if this offends any breeder, but if the shoe fits...) Canadian Shetland Sheepdog Association CSSA

We do reserve the right to refuse a sale. We breed for ourselves first.
