Belmark Shelties is a small show kennel located in North West Ohio near Bellefontaine, 45 minutes North of Dayton and about an hour from Columbus. I hope you have time to stay and visit and see pictures of our home and kennel. We were established in 1986, striving for AKC standard correct shelties for all rings. We exhibit in AKC (American Kennel Club) and CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) and sometimes UKC (United Kennel Club) just for fun. We have been very successful through the years and have the honor of having All breed, Best In Show Winners, Specialty Best In Show winners and ASSA National winners with a RWB and Best In Futurity in the last couple years. We strive to produce dogs that adhere to our breed Standard, and are yet a joy to live with and train. Our lines are based on Banchory through Tall Timber and Macdega with a splash of Heritage Spirit. This blend stamps our shelties with solid, well moving bodies and stable temperaments as well as a classy, elegant presence, loads of coat and a sweet, loving expression. To see some of our informal sheltie photos check out our Gallery pages, Fun Photos, and Fan Letters to name a few.

We would like to invite you to surf our pages, and look around. We have much excitement as always, and have been honored with our breed's parent club award ASSA's Breeder Of Most Champions for 2012. We have bred and or owned 52 American Champions, 51 Canadian Champions and have many others waiting in the wings to show their stuff! If you would like to reach us please feel free to contact us, we are always happy to talk to someone interested in the breed!

And please don't forget to check all the links at the bottom of each and every page.
