Meet The Owner

Founder & OWner

Kelli Shuttleworth

My family and I moved to Babcock Ranch in October 2018. As a child, I memorized the dog encyclopedia and loved impressing owners by correctly identifying their dog’s breed. After college, my husband Todd and I raised sheep and the best part of the farming experience was my interaction with the farm’s many working dogs. Training border collies and raising livestock guardian dogs was incredibly fulfilling. As a foster home for rescue dogs, our family has cared for more than thirty dogs! A passion and dedication for dogs has led me to enroll in multiple dog obedience, trick training and agility classes. My life experience gives me the skills to confidently care for your special furry friends, and I am thrilled to spend my days doing what I love!
