I was going to suggest a mini poodle (someone beat me to it).... they can be kept in a short clip that doesnt require too much work.

Also, you said sheltie size or smaller, but is their a minimum size they are thinking as well? I was thinking a pap might be a good choice for them as well... because they are portable enough for them to take camping and traveling in the summer but active enough that they would enjoy the space to run and play.

From the list you got, a Brittany would probably be a good choice as well.

If they dont really care about breed too much and want something slightly older then a puppy they could try looking around on petfinder and see if anyone jumps out at them!

Good Luck

These are bigger than a Sheltie, though...

My thought was a Beagle, too, but Beagles are major scent dogs, so it might be hard to train a reliable recall if they do alot of off leash stuff.

Yah I was thinking on suggesting a Pap to them or poodle. I think what they should probaly do is either look on petfinder or Kijiji and find an older dog that needs a new home for whatever reason.

sounds like a great idea.
definatly dont rule out the other spaniels too (paps are after all spaneil based )

Pap was my first thought. They're in many ways similar to shelties in that if you like one, you will likely like the other (high energy, sensitive, smart, etc). Only I find paps to be less barky, less grooming intensive and less prone to shyness and timidity problems. They're a great breed.

A lot of the other smaller spaniel breeds could work too.

I know they loved their Sheltie. But I dont think they like how shy she was. I knew that dog for over 5 years and I was over at their house almost everyday and still that dog would never come up to me and would run away from me like I was trying to catch her. I believe they need a dog that is more "fun". Lady really did not do much of anything!

I had a sheltie very much like this and can understand why it would put them off the breed but most shelties aren't this way. My others were very fun little dogs and were fine with strange people.

The barking and shedding though are just sheltie things, lol.

I think a pap, especially a bigger one, would be a good option.

What about a Husky? With that much land the dog is sure to get the exercise it needs.

They want a smaller dog that doesn't shed as much as a Sheltie ... two strikes with a Husky!
