Starstruck Shelties was established in 1994 and Starstruck Agility in 2000. We are located in Spanish Springs, a small community just north of Reno/Sparks, Nevada. Our home sits on a little over an acre, and the back portion of the acre is a grass agility field where I hold classes four days a week. I have shown dogs in conformation and obedience since the sixties. I started training in agility around 1995 and competing in 1997.

Starstruck Shelties is a very small kennel. We have six adult sable and white shelties, 2 males and 4 females. Our dogs have the run of the house and sleep at the foot of our bed. One of our girls (BJ) and one of our boys (Devin) are AKC champions. Our male Devin has achieved his AKC MACH (Master Agility Championship) as well as his NADAC NATCH and Versatility NATCH. Four of our dogs have agility titles as well as three of our dogs who have passed away and two of our dogs we have placed in pet homes. The dogs that are used for breeding are checked for hip dysplasia, eye diseases, and vWD. We raise litters once or twice a year. The puppies are raised in the kitchen/family room area with a lot of hands on love and affection. The puppies are exposed to a lot of different surfaces (grass, dirt, small rocks, cement, carpet, etc) and objects (playing in tunnels, crawling up small stairs, jumping over rocks and in-between boulders, etc.) Also, the neighborhood children come over and play with the puppies. Pet/companion puppies are sold on a spay/neuter contract on an AKC Limited Registration.

I am a member of the American Shetland Sheepdog Association, Treasurer of the Northern Nevada Shetland Sheepdog Club, President of Happy Animals = Harmonious Agility Club, and a member of Quicksilver Agility Club and Truckee Meadows Dog Training Club.
