My Parents, Dick and Beverly Baird, founded Apple Acres Shelties in 1959. They retired from raising shelties ten years later. When I decided to raise shelties I wanted to carry on the Apple Acres kennel name as a tribute to them and they were delighted!

Located in Central Washington, Cashmere is about a 20 minute drive from Wenatchee.  Our small town is famous for not only it's wonderful apples but is home to the Applets and Cotlets candy factory.  Our family resides on 5 acres surrounded by orchards of peaches, pears and just about every type of apple there is.

Apple Acres is a family tradition. As of the year 2010 we have owned/bred 105 champions. Our dogs are known for their sound bodies, minds and movement. I would like to invite you in to see the past, present and future of our growing family.
