The Shiloh Shepherd was bred by a lady (that is unknown at this time), which has been breeding German Shepherd Dogs since the 1960's. The Shiloh Shepherd is rather similar to that of the German Shepherd except it is bigger, has a warmer and sounder temperament, and is said to have better hips. The Shiloh Shepherd is not all that common, however does make a good companion dog for many different homes.
The Shiloh Shepherd has somewhat of a fearless temperament making them a great guard dog, however they are prone to dominance issues so proper training is a must. This breed is a joy to train and learns very quickly. This breed is energetic, friendly, and a joy to be around. The Shiloh Shepherd retains much of the temperament of the German Shepherd, however has a more even temperament and should never be shy nor aggressive in any way.
The Shiloh Shepherd can be very protective of his territory and owner, so proper handling is very important. This breed is not recommended for the average owner, however they do make wonderful companions. An experienced handler is a must for this protective and somewhat dominant breed. Shiloh Shepherds can do well around children if properly socialized or raised around them, but should not be trusted around infants and terribly small children. They can also do well around other animals, providing they have been socialized properly at an early age.
Shiloh Shepherds require regular brushing to prevent matts or tangling, especially for the plush variety. This breed does not require regular bathing, and doesn't require much in the grooming area. Bathing too often will remove the natural oils from their coat, which will reduce the weather resistance. The Shiloh Shepherd has a somewhat fluffy coat which can trap sticks, leaves, and burrs fairly easy so if allowed to roam free in a fenced area, should always be checked afterwards and remove any of these items if they are present.
The Shiloh Shepherd comes in two varieties, smooth coat and plush. The smooth coated variety has a thick double coat, with harsh outer hair protecting the undercoat, while the plush coat has a dense undercoat and somewhat of a mane.
Highly intelligent and eager to please, the Shiloh Shepherd however does require a dominant and firm owner. Dominance issues could arise if not properly handled. This breed does amazingly well in obedience. Very firm handling is a must to avoid any aggression problems or dominance difficulties. The Shiloh Shepherd does very well in obedience trials as well as agility if given the correct handling and training. Obedience classes should be given at an early age.
The Shiloh Shepherd is a large breed that requires a lot of exercise to remain healthy and active. A large yard is recommended, but will do okay with an average sized yard. Shiloh Shepherds love long walks and should be given at least two per day. This breed also loves a nice, brisk jog. The Shiloh Shepherd should have at least an hour and a half of exercise per day if he is to retain his wonderful power and muscles.

How much and what’s the best food for a Shiloh Shepard??



The average cost of a Shiloh Shepherd is between $1200.00 - $1750.00. However, the cost of a puppy will differ greatly in different areas, the breeder and whether or not you are purchasing a pet quality dog or a show / breeding quality dog. A medium to high quality grain free food does very well for this breed.


Do not ever feed "grain free" to your pet~~~~Please do your research, working in the Vet field and seeing what a grain free diet will do to a pet, massive heart issues.

Anonymous asked:
Is the Shiloh Shepherd breed as outstanding as the original German Shepherd plus larger? My male German was with our family for 14 years and since then my wife fell in love with the giant breed, namely Danes. We now have been without a dog for about a year. Our last Dane left us last spring.

In short, yes. The Shiloh Shepherd is a larger, thicker furred version of the German Shepherd. The mannerism and temperaments are very similar. The over-all calmness that the Shiloh has is from the Giant Alaskan Malamute that was used to create the breed. They are a loyal, loving, trustworthy breed that gives off a sense of calm and safety when around them.

Is a Shiloh Shepherd a German Shepherd mixed with an Alaskan Malamute?



I read that this was true. I have a big white Shiloh Shepherd that is a real sweetheart. He gets along with the other dogs and lets the small ones push him around. They are wonderful pets and every place I go people want to pet him and ask what kind of dog he is. He just loves all the attention. He's about 130lbs and very loving and playful, with long thick hair.


There is only a little Malamute blood in the Shiloh Shepherd lines, and, it is Giant Malamute- not just Malamute.


I would like to see a picture of a white Shiloh Shepherd.


Tina Barber in upstate New york created this breed from Oldline big German Shepherds, Giant Alaskan Malamutes, a Big Black old style German Shepherd dog from Europe named Artus. She added new blood from hoofprint White Shepherds kennels in Canada, using a big white shepherd named Orbit. Rumor has it, they might even have some Mackenzie valley wolf in them. She kept a tight breeding program. Shiloh's are known for having beautiful gray sable coats. They can come in white and other colors.
