Our Shilohs are integrated in every aspect of our life. They sleep with us (or I should say we sleep with them), eat with us, and ride in the car with us practically everywhere we go. My son, Kai is 12 years old and he was raised with and absolutely loves the Shilohs. When Kai was brought home from the hospital, they would all circle around him when he was on the floor. As a baby he would topple over and they would gently lick his face. Kody would lay behind his back to support Kai and keep him from toppling.
Kai always loved having puppies around. He used to play with them and cuddle with them. Kai misses having the puppies around.
Kai helps with the daily dog chores as well as teaching them how to respect him, even though he is much smaller than they are (Kai - 82 pounds, dogs - 95 pounds and up). He likes to feed them and has them sit and wait as he places the dish in front of them. My name is Laura Kathryn and I have been working with dogs for over 40 years.
Here is a video we took of a socialization outing we had with three Pica and Zeke pups.
Solace Shilohs inception was in 2002. We raise our dogs in a family environment.
We are a family, who loves the intelligence and beauty and majesty of the Shiloh Shepherd.
