All About Shiloh Shepherds

The Shiloh Shepherd is a courageous, self-confident, gentle giant. Which possesses superior intelligence wrapped in a heart of gold. This extremely versatile and easily trained companion loves to swim, carry packs for the mountain climber, endure long trail rides, or pull heavy sleds. Their excellent Air Scenting ability can be utilized in various ways, including Search & Rescue, Tracking, and sent detection work. As a true, loyal Flock Guardian descendant, they are steady and bold, without undue aggression. In 1962 Tina Barber was inspired by her childhood memories of the great Shepherds she had grown up with back in Germany circa the 1940's. Carefully selecting for intelligence, child-safe temperaments, and fluid movement, she built the foundation for this beautiful new breed. Then in 1991 she deliberately began to slowly introduce a small handful of outcross' to genetically diversify her line. This created the distinct "Shiloh" qualities we know and love today, while also improving breed health and longevity at the same time.
