Conformation Shows

We began showing our Shiloh Shepherd Breeze when she was 14 weeks old.  
At her first ARBA show, Kelsey and Breeze received a Best in Show Puppy and a Reserve Best in Show Puppy.  

Midas began showing at 4 months old.  He is a NAKC International  and Breed Champion.  
He is a multiple Best of Breed winner and a Best in Show winner.  

Ozzy had his debut at the NAKC Battlefield Classic in April 2008.  At the NAKC Fort Mott Classic in July, 2008,
Ozzy earned his Jr. Championship.   He went on to capture 4 Jr. Puppy Best in Show wins.  
Ozzy received his first adult Best in Show in 2010.

We have shown with NAKC/ Rarities, ARBA, NCA and have enjoyed a few AKC fun matches.  
We continue to show as location and schedules allow.   

First and foremost, our dogs are family members.  
We are often asked if our Shilohs are 'show dogs' due to their majestic beauty.
Our response is that our Shilohs are treasured family members who sometimes show.
Scan down the page for many of our show memories.
