Who Are We?
My name is Barry. My wife Sheila and I own Shepherds on the Hill. I have over a decade of military service; from the 70's to 80's I worked with man-dog team, dog training for police dogs, and home protection training. I started out in Vietnam around sentry and scout dogs, not as a handler, but observing. I got hooked on the German Shepherd breed because of their ability and loyalty.
When I returned to the states, I got the privilege of working with the handlers with their dogs in my free time. In the late 80's, I started working with an Inland K-9 Security group, training police dogs and working man-dog team in West Port Plaza, Kansas City. I started a breeding program with Inland K-9, and some of our impressive puppies went on to serve in Sheriff's departments. Two even went to the Dominican Republic as riot dogs.
When I relocated to St. Louis, I got away from the dog training business. But through the years, Sheila and I have always had a beloved German Shepherd by our side and always will.
