|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.

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 and Terri participated in an
all breed fun match on
Saturday, September 11, 2010,
in Hampton, Virginia.
Our special Ozzy
was on his game and went
Best in Show!
What a great class at Pawsitive Attitudes!
Graduation day was a gorgeous Fall day,
so the class was held outdoors. We
looked forward to going each week.
|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
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

Fun class at Pawsitive Attitudes

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.
