Belmark Shelties is a 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). We have been very successful through the years and have the honor of having All breed, Best In Show Winners, Reserve Best in Shows, Specialty Best In Show winners and ASSA National winners with a couple RWB, a RWD, Best In Futurity, Runner up to Best in Futurity, and numerous Award of Merit winners. We strive to produce dogs that adhere to our breed Standard, and are 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, tied in 2014, won 2015, 2016 and 2018, 2020 is still in the works. We have bred and or owned 129 American Champions, 71 Canadian Champions and have many others pointed and nearing their Championships. We have owned three of the top 15 Register Of Merit Producers in breed history and I am now an AKC Judge for the Shetland Sheepdog. Our dogs have excelled in many venues and gone one to break many records.
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”


We attend shows just about every weekend, our dogs are well socialized, of the utmost quality, health tested and much loved. Please take the time to get to know us better; don't forget to check all the links at the bottom of each page. Thanks for visiting with us.
