Hello and Croeso i (welcome to) the Bellvalley Beagles website. The first Puppy Culture breeders of Beagles in the world and also members of the Kennel Club's Assured Breeder Scheme, the Smart Pup Reputable Breeder Scheme, The Beagle Club, The Beagle Association, Beagle Welfare and are on the committee of The Welsh Beagle Club.
Bellvalley Beagles was founded in 2005 by Wendy Evans. The name Bellvalley derived from the Welsh name of our home.
2020 saw Gareth (Wendy's son) and Laura take over the reins full time as Wendy retired, but not completely! Wendy continues to train dogs and their owners for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards, Scent work and more at her local club ClickStart Dog Training. Laura often takes the Beagles along for their Puppy Foundation Training and Ringcraft practice.
We live in the heart of Carmarthenshire countryside on our family run farm where we aim to be as self sufficient as possible with our milking cows, a few sheep, pigs, chickens and our horses (American Quarter Horses and Welsh Cobs).
Like most working family farms, we all have a part to play to ensure the smooth running of things, which includes the most vital members of the team who we could not do without - our working collies!
We all enjoy looking after our extended family (of the four legged variety). Wendy's husband, Viv, also enjoys sheepdog trials and competes at local level with our farm collies - they are never far away and you may well see Spike, Jet, Dale and Mick around when you come and visit. To see more of our beautiful farm click on the 'Our Farm' button at the bottom of the page.
We have been showing dogs for over 20 years and all love the excitement of getting the animals fit and trained for the show ring. Gareth started showing dogs at the age of six and has gone on to have some great times showing Dil (Kaniboo Golden Knight of Bellvalley sh CM), his much loved Cocker Spaniel dog. Together they achieved a very good 5th at Crufts, also going on to get his stud book number. Sadly our old boy Dil passed away, but he will not be forgotten.
Nowadays, Gareth has achieved some of the highest placings and awards in the show ring, including Best Beagle Puppy at Crufts two years in a row! His much loved dog the late Bellvalley Stella, won Best of Breed gaining her Kennel Club Challenge Certificate in 2014 and in 2018 Riley (CH Bellvalley Teen Spirit) became a Champion.
Here at Bellvalley we can offer you quality Tricolour and Tan & White Beagle puppies from our small show kennels where type and temperament are to the fore. Puppies are well bred with many of the top Beagle dogs in their Pedigree.
