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
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
