FIND US ON THE MEMBER'S FORUM & FACEBOOK

Members Forum: The following criteria are a requirement for access to ISSDC Members Only area:

  • Your ISSDC membership must be current
  • You must register here with the same email address you used in your ISSDC application. The software used for our online members forum requires an additional registration that is separate from the application used to join the club.
  • Helpful hint, sign up with the same login/password as you use on the Shilohs eGroup

Although our ISSDC Member Forum does not replace our public informational Shilohs list found on Yahoo, it was set up as a member benefit for our ISSDC members. We encourage all members to take full advantage of the forum. Moderators have been selected more so to answer your inquiries in a timely manner than to moderate posting.

Keeping your ISSDC membership current is required. Membership to this list is archived at the end of each membership year. Reactivation occurs at renewal.

HEALTHY HEARTS! How you can help?
GSD/IVA is an inherited electrical issue within the heart that is found in GSDs and Shilohs. It can cause sudden death in young dogs and has no outward or obvious symptoms. A 24-Hour Holter Monitor test is required to diagnose these conditions. Because the arrhythmia may not occur all the time it is easily missed with typical Ausculation and Echo-cardiograms. <br /><br />

We are hoping that in the future we will be able to test all pups from every litter. In order to make this a reality we need to have an adequate supply of holter monitors in the Shiloh community. The ISSDC is raising funds to purchase additional monitor(s) that will be lent out to breeders. <br /><br />

KODIAK'S WHEELS ~ Walk-in' Wheel Wheelchair Donation & Rental
Kodiak’s Wheels is a program inspired by the struggle Monica Popaduke’s boy, Kodiak, went through as he aged. As a result the ISSDC is offering to it’s members a loan of a Walk-in’ Wheels Wheelchair.
