SHOWBOAT SHEPHERDS are bred for temperament, health, and correct and balanced structure. They can be seen competing in both the show ring and the performance ring. My goal is to breed dogs that can excel in both conformation and performance. Our dogs have championship titles and performance titles in obedience, tracking, agility and herding. They have appeared in several PETCO advertising flyers, on Avanti greeting cards and on the background set for FOX's weekly "World's " funniest videos television show.
My first shepherd was purchased in 1979 and was a long coat that was shown in obedience and received her CD and CDX. She was a Gaines qualifier and was close to getting her UD when I had to retire her due to hip dysplasia. After that, health and sound structure was a must. In 1983, I purchased my second German Shepherd who was to become my foundation bitch. Champion R.Beth's Showboat OFA, TC, HIC, UD,aka " Banjo" was a once in a life time dog with temperament beyond compare. Her sire was Pacific Coast Victor Ch. Arelee's Woodstock CD and she was out of a Pacific Coast Victor Ch. Judd Von Kristy daughter.
Her daughters and granddaughters are carrying on her tradition of producing healthy, beautiful dogs that are sound in mind and body.
On the following pages you can see some of my dogs, both show dogs and performance dogs.
