Chilco Kennels was founded in 1967 by my Grandmother (Rose Cortez - then Rose Higbie). Her breed of choice was the Siberian Husky, which she bred, raced, showed, and loved for over 40 years. She was greatly involved in helping the Caralien Bear Dog gain CKC recognition. And owned the first Canadian Champion of the breed. This is where my love of dogs began.

I grew up with three wonderful Siberian Huskies bred by my Grandmother. It was with one of these dogs that I stepped into the ring for the first time, competing in a 4-H obedience show. It was while visiting my Grandmother and helping with the kennel (one of my favorite things to do) that I met a breed of dog that would capture my heart, the German Shepherd Dog.

I received my first GSD when I was 12 years old (what a birthday present that was). Unfortunately she turned out to be dysplastic. But my replacement boy just cemented my love of the breed. And I havenít looked back. I have been involved with GSDs for over 30 years. I got involved in obedience 25 years ago, through my local dog club. At this club I met several mentors that fostered my love of the breed and guided me through the show world. So a year after getting involved in obedience, I branched out to conformation. Since then I have ventured into several avenues in the dog world and I hope to continue broadening my horizons.

Welcome, enjoy your stay. And please feel free to email, I would love to correspond with people who enjoy training and showing dogs as much as I do.
