We are so proud of our daughter Jenna

At Lakeside Shelties we proudly offer only the best quality Shetland Sheepdogs
bred for temperament and companionship.


All of our dogs are home raised and live with us. We have approximately 1/2 acre fenced as a play yard, and two - 10 X 12 runs for dogs when in season or separate play yard for puppies when old enough to go outside.
All of these areas are accessible to our home through doggie doors. While raising five children we were fortunate enough to be introduced to the Shetland Sheepdog breed by a friend. She later offered us one of her Shelties that we named Callie.

Callie quickly became our most beloved family pet. That was 17 years ago and we still love shelties as much today as when Callie first joined our family.

After Callie passed away, I spent a lot of time researching and looking for a Sheltie, I realized that there was a need for a breeder who produced good quality, well rounded, socialized puppies.

Before having our family, I had experience in breeding, conformation and working dog trials with another breed.


It wasn’t until after our children were grown and gone that I realized how much I missed it and couldn’t imagine ever having any other than a sheltie.

I have been blessed with good friends and mentors who have helped me achieve that goal and have helped on the path to improving the sheltie breed.
We only breed for puppies once or twice a year, but if you are looking for an outgoing, healthy and beautiful Sheltie look no further.

This is the Bridge/Rock garden I made in memory of my shelties that have passed.

This has been a long time dream of mine to have a special place of remembrance for all our shelties who will always have a special place in our life. and heart.  My version of the Rainbow Bridge

Hunter and Bree earn Canine Good Citizen certification

The Kenai Kennel Club held a Canine Good Citizens certification test in Early December 2010 - Hunter and Bree passed with flying colors!

Bree has been doing really well in agility training and progressing fast, although she has taken time out of training to become a first time mom. We’ll be back in training in few more weeks and we’re looking forward to having a great time together.

Hunter has moved into training and competition Rally and is doing extremely well. He excels at Rally and we love doing it together.
