    "Your Dog's Behavior is OUR Business"  


         Shadowbar Shepherds is set in the picturesque Porcupine Hills of Southern Alberta at the junction of Highways 3 & 22. It is the home of Darryl and Judi Snowdon.  Since 1984, we have been quietly raising, training, and exhibiting some of the top performance German shepherds in Canada.

         Our dogs are proof that the German shepherd is a versatile breed. Most of our dogs are titled in both the conformation and performance rings. We have CKC Champions, High in Trial Obedience and Best in Show dogs and we boast the first and only German shepherds to gain  Draft Dog and Draft Dog Excellent titles.  Our dogs have Herding titles , Agility titles, and  Scent Hurdle and Flyball dog championships. They have numerous Perfect Scores in the all classes of Rally Obedience. As well, our dogs track and are active in Therapy work.   

         We offer workshops, classes, private lessons and coaching programs in obedience (all levels, all breeds), Rally O, tracking, draft dog work, and scent hurdle racing as well as in beginner agility and recreational search techniques.  Our instructor is active in competition, is a member of the CAPPDT, is a CKC judge in performance events,  a CGN evaluator, and holds a BEd. degree, the Prime Minister's award for excellence in teaching,  and the coveted AB SPCA's Teacher of the Year award.  

         We also offer boarding/training programs for those who wish to send their dogs to Shadowbar.   Whether it is basic obedience or a desire to improve competition performance, we can help. We train and exhibit client dogs in performance events. If you wish to add a performance title to your champion, we can do that too.

                                            We invite you to view our website and enjoy.
