Welcome to Solace ISSR Shilohs. We are no longer breeding, due to personal health reasons, but we are more than happy to answer your questions and refer you to other breeders, who hold the same high standards that we do. We are still passionate about the breed and will continue to mentor others who have Shilohs from our breeding program and we are available to help you find a Solace-like puppy.
Our plan is to chronicle our last 12 years of adventures with ISSR Shiloh Shepherds and share our stories. We have had a good run and have enjoyed breeding ISSR Shiloh Shepherds, but we feel it is time for us to enjoy our dogs. We plan to keep our Shilohs as our pets and take the time to enjoy them as they impact the quality of our life in a very positive way. Keep checking back with us as we will continue our website and share with you what we are doing. We look foward to also sharing our upcoming "Memoirs of a Dog Breeder" through our website, so please check back for updates.
My plan is to support the ISSR Shiloh so that my son Kai's children and his children can have these majestic creatures as a part of their family. Please help to do that by joining the Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club of America.
Our Shilohs are registered exclusively with the ISSR (International Shiloh Shepherd Registry - the registry of the Breed Founder). Since 2002, we have been a small breeding facility and have raised Shiloh Shepherds in our state of the art facility in Washington state. We live in a rural residential neighborhood about 30 minutes north of Seattle. Our dogs are family raised and loved and an integral part of our family. Enjoy our website and learn what we are about and feel free to ask questions.
Have you ever met a Shiloh Shepherd in person before? They are a lot like the German Shepherds of days gone by - like Rin Tin Tin. They have the intelligence of GSDs, but are softer in temperament and are larger in size, in both height and bone. They are gentle giants that can intimidate an intruder that is unwelcome, while being incredibly careful and caring around a newborn.
I have six of these dogs that I raise around my ten year old son and they treat him with the same respect they give me. Shilohs tend to respect that which is important to you and therefore they are very easy to train. They have an intrinsic desire for you to be pleased with them and there is an intuitive quality about them.
Be a strong leader and set your expectations very high for your Shiloh and your Shiloh will meet or exceed your expectations. These dogs love to think and be connected with you and your family and model themselves after their owners. Click on Testimonials to read what people have to say.
At Solace Shilohs, we have always taken raising Shiloh Shepherds very seriously.
Solace Shilohs aim is to provide a healthy, stimulating environment for our Shilohs.
We welcome visitors to our facility, but we ask that you come in clean, fresh from dryer clothes (and spotless shoes) and not be around any other animals or parks prior to visiting, as we run a very sanitary and clean facility.
