About Us

Who We Are

Ruth, a licensed foster parent, social worker & mental health therapist, started raising Corgis as therapy dogs after witnessing how effective pet therapy is for children & families.  The unconditional love given by the Corgis led the family to branch out and raise their other favorite breeds.  In addition to the Corgis, we are now breeding German Shepherds, St. Bernards, Rough-coated Collies and comming soon Huskies, Shollies (German Shepherd X Collie) and Huskitas (Huskie X Akita).  Both Ruth and Bill are licensed therapy dog handlers through Therapy Dogs International (TDI) and Brenna, is their traveling therapy dog. Buckelsbury Kennel is located in central Iowa on the Buckels' family farm with easy access to Interstate 35.   Buckelsbury Kennel is Federally licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture and state licensed by the Iowa Department of Agriculture & Land Stewardship.  We have both AKC & non-AKC breadlines so we can serve most price points for our buyers.
