I have had dogs all my life. The story is that I learned how to walk holding onto our golden retriever. I started showing in AKC with Rottweilers around 2000 (I think), competing in herding trials and obedience. When I met my first Shiloh, I was impressed with the breed temperament, the intelligence and the connection they made with their people. Soon after that, I got my first Shiloh and started showing them. They are a joy.
I put my experience doing litter evaluations and researching pedigrees into my first Shiloh litter. I must say, it is not for the faint of heart but it is something I will never regret. As I have gotten more involved with the breed, I have also gotten more involved with the club. My hope is that we can pull together and improve the health of the breed and diversity of the genetic pool. I am hopeful, through the breeder of merit program being developed, that we can also do a better job promoting good care and breeding for all our dogs. I’m looking forward to the ongoing challenge.
