Learning to Read
Inspired by a Shiloh Shepherd named Cady
and her dedicated owner/trainer Martha,
with our Shilohs - teaching them to read we
are embarking on a learning adventure and
respond to written obedience commands.  
We are very excited to incorporate this fun
activity in our daily training exercises.  
Here are a few photos of our first 2 learned
words "Sit" and "Lay".
Stay tuned for future updates.
Ozzy notices word pattern
for Sit and follows command.
Paws for Cause Festival
Olde Towne Portsmouth was the location of the 2nd Annual
Paws for Cause dog walk and festival,
supporting the Portsmouth Humane Society.
Kelsey was home for the weekend,
so we leashed up Alosia and Ozzy and headed for the fun which
included a 1 mile walking parade through Olde Towne, then
back to North Street Landing for music, games, vendors, and
food.   There must have been close to 200 dogs there reported
that over $26,000 was raised.  It was a great event!
Yes, they really do drink
from a water bottle!

Ozzy Completes Intermediate Obedience

What a great class at Pawsitive Attitudes!

looked forward to going each week.
Alosia Completes Intermediate Obedience
Alosia completed the
Intermediate Obedience class
at Pawsitive Attitudes,
Saturday, December 4.

Our appreciation to Patty Allen for
her guidance and patience.  

Alosia is a giant, young dog with tons
of energy and a love of other dogs
and people.

Malamutes are highly intelligent and  
independent with innate problem
solving abilities.  Those traits
combined with enormous energy
means obedience is challenging.  
Ozzy Completes first Agility Class
Ozzy completed the Agility for
Fun class at Pawsitive Attitudes
in early December.

Congratulations Ozzy!

Ozzy went outside to offer greetings.

The Scottish Festival traces it roots back to the
time of the Vikings.  It is an annual celebration
when the community comes together to celebrate
the past year and bestow blessings on the
merchants, friends and neighbors for the next year.

Alosia participated in the walk where she greeted
existing friends and made many new friends.

Register of Merit
Our Shiloh couple, Breeze and Midas, were recognized by the
National Shiloh Breeders Registry with their Register of Merit (ROM) titles.

The ROM title is awarded to Shiloh Shepherds whose progeny excel in
conformation and working events, and whose cumulative achievements
meet the requirements of their registry.  

The ROM designation is the highest title earned and recognizes
a sire or dam for the success of their progeny.

To have both Breeze and Midas, lifetime mates and best friends,
recognized with this award is an honor and testament
to their contribution to the Shiloh Shepherd breed.
