Yes, shelties are very playful and many love to play frisbee. I would suggest a soft frisbee though, because the hard plastic types tend to cut their gums after a while. Shelties do make good watch dogs, for example, they will bark if someone is at the door or if they hear a noise. However, they are not the greatest guard dogs because it is not in their nature to attack an intruder.

If you're looking for frisbees, I agree with using soft. Along with being better for the dog, they last much longer and can be machine washed. I buy 'Flippy Floppers'. They are much cheaper online than from somewhere like petco. Around $55 for 10. My sheltie is nuts over them.
