Who we are

The International Shiloh Shepherd Alliance (ISSA) is a large group of breeders united under the core concepts of education, research, and the promotion of our unique breed, the Shiloh Shepherd.

We believe that education is all-important. Not only for you, who might consider adding a Shiloh to your home, but for our breeders, who enjoy a training program and mentoring from the senior members of our community. We believe in pursuing research into health and behavior, and in utilizing the latest breakthroughs in genetic science to bring you the healthiest dogs possible.

To support our vision, we mandate a wide panel of health testing on all breeding animals in our organization. Our minimum standard is very high. We promote tight breed regulation. We believe in breeders working together, to make cohesive decisions for the good of the breed. We understand that we as breeders have a responsibility to our puppy people, and we (and our community) are here for you if you have any questions, concerns, or if you need help.
