Mac Shilohs is located in Central New York and is currently home to our two Shiloh Shepherds bchptd Hamish MacKota of Shenandoah, CGC, TT; and rbchptd B&T Rising Star Gareth MacKota, HIC, CGC. We are lovers of this magnificient breed and are passionate about our dogs. At this time, however, we are not breeding. We believe in health and temperament testing to help preserve the sound temperaments, health and the wonderful intelligence found in this breed. We have shown our boys in the occasional rare breed dog show recognizing Shiloh Shepherd, and Mac Shilohs supports both our Shiloh registry — the TSSR [The Shiloh Shepherd Registry] — and breed club — the ISSDC [International Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club.

Be sure to roll over the Celtic Seasons above to see Mac Shilohs through the year and then come on in, take a look around and meet us and our Shiloh Shepherd family.










We are pleased to share the news that Gareth earned his Herding Instinct Certificate and passed the first leg of the AHBA HCT title. Gareth will need to earn the second leg, known as the HCT II, under a different judge to earn his full HCT title from the AHBA.

The event, sponsored by the ISSDC and planned through the tireless efforts of Nottingham Shilohs with some help from us at Mac Shilohs, was a fully sanctioned AHBA trial held at Keepstone Farm in Berryville, VA. Keepstone is where many of the Fab Five Shilohs trained in their pursuit of getting AHBA recognition for the Shiloh Shepherd in 2004.





Our mom is a picture-a-holic. She just doesn’t know when to stop snapping shots . . . come on in and see a whole lot more of us in “A Dog’s Life.”
