About Shiloh Kennels & Stables
Thank you for visiting Shiloh Kennels and Stables gundog page. Our family has owned and operated boarding, breeding, and training kennels for over 40 years. We have some of the best dogs and bloodlines in the country and don't just say that, we prove it by competing and consistently placing on the national level in field competition on a regular basis.
When looking for a breeder don't leave it up to chance. We consistently produce some of the best dogs in the country each and every year, and you'll find many kennels and individuals out there that have based their breeding programs on dogs coming from Shiloh Kennels. We take that as a great compliment. We don't breed based on what we see on paper (pedigree), but by a long term breeding program that has been set up. Dogs must meet my strict criteria to be used, and not just bred to produce puppies and make a sale. We believe breeding is a true art form and we will do our best to help match the exact breeding that will fit your needs. Dogs must possess solid temperments, outstanding hunting ability being this is a hunting breed, have superior health and structure and form that follows function. These are but a few of the important characteristics we look for before breeding. We have Futurity Winners, VCA Championship Winners, NVA Champinship Winners, and have had many Top Ten Dogs in the country. We have been blessed with about 500 field trial placements and are very active in the breed on a national level.
I have been a member of many vizsla organizations: Vizsla Club of America, Vizsla Club of IL, Central WI Vizsla Club, Twin Cities Vizsla Club, Four Lakes GSP, and Northwest Field Trial Club. I have been the chair and secretary of numerous events for many years. Most notably I have sat on the board of directors for the National Vizsla Association, was the President for 4 years, and have been the active VP for the past 4 years. Was the editor of the Vizsla Field magazine and was the founder, chair, and secretary of the NVA National Quail Championship for the last 8 years. I say all this not to brag, but only to give you an idea of some of our credentials. I have been an AKC and American Field judge for many years and have had the honor to judge many different pointer breed Championship events. The most important thing is that we have many satisfied customers who's dogs are great companions, hunters, and competition dogs.
We hunt our dogs and have many satisfied hunters around the country. They have been hunted on multiple grouse species, pheasants, quail, woodcock, and chukar. We are blessed to have been featured on Northland Adventures Outdoor show for late season grouse hunting. One of our dogs has been aired regularly on the Pheasants Forever Outdoor Show.
All dogs come with our hip and health guarantee, and our hunting guarantee. They have excellent temperaments and need to be great companions first and foremost. Puppies, stud service, started dogs, field trial prospects. Mentoring program. If we can help you pick a new companion and hunting buddy or field trial competitor, please call us and let us know how we can serve you. Thanks and God Bless.
We currently are taking deposits on two winter litters that will be born in May and July and ready to go home in July and September 2013. These are from dogs that are proven producers of top hunting and field trial dogs. Their disposition and temperaments are exceptional and their pups are first and foremost, outstanding members of the family. If your going to invest money in a dog, go with something proven. We stand behind all our dogs, and our record speaks for itself. These dogs will be a great addition as a companion and hunter to any family. Please call us to see if we can met your needs for your next family addition. We also have a few started young dogs.

Submitted by: Travis Webb on Nov 20, 2012My wife and I bought a female pup from Shiloh Kennels three years ago. Shiloh Kennels was recommended to us by one my fellow hunting partners who also has a female Vizsla from Robert. Having hunted with my friend’s dog and experiencing her disposition around the house I was hoping to get a dog just like his. When our pup arrived, we knew that we had gotten a great dog from Robert. She was already trained to go to the bathroom outside and we never had to deal with any other puppy problems like chewing. I started hunting her when she was 8 months old and she instinctively handled wild pheasants and chukars as well as my dad’s 6 year old pointer. We travel quite frequently for business throughout the summer for long periods of time and our dog Hayden always adapts quickly to wherever it is we call home. As an added bonus, my wife who is an avid runner has gained a great running buddy in Hayden. We would strongly recommend Shiloh Kennels to our closest friends and family. My father who has had Pointers, Setters and Griffons is getting a Vizsla pup in the spring from Robert!
Submitted by: Tom Lochner on Jul 05, 2011I got my first vizsla from Robert in April 2011. In short, she's been a phenomenal pet these first 2.5 months, and is showing all the hunting ability and potential I could have hoped for. Potty training was a breeze(maybe took a week before accidents became rare) and she took to the basic obedience commands amazingly quickly and is very attentive and accepting of training with very soft methods.
5-6 times per week I take her to a local dog 'park' that's more like a nature preserve with about 30 acres of prairie, woods, mowed fields, and swimming beaches along a river. Every single time I take her there I get compliments on how she works the fields like a veteran, how obedient she is, how well she swims and retrieves in water, how well she blind retrieves, how well socialized she is, and how beautiful she is. All I have to say to her is 'HUNT' and she bolts for the grassy cover and starts working for birds or scented dummies. Keep in mind this was entirely instinctual. Since I'm new to training pointers I largely let her learn on her own, rather than assume I know what is best and try to teach her. I just shut up and let her figure it out. She's 4.5 months old now, and she does blind retrieves and follows scent trails better than any either of the 2 retrievers I've previously/currently have. And holy cow did her pointing instincts come out the first time I introduced her to live birds in a field. She locked up on point the very first time she found a live quail in the field.
On the 'house pet' side, she's been great around people from 5 month old and 2 year old babies who don't have a clue what do do with a puppy, and also 91 year old nursing home residents. At 14 weeks old she watched a marathon with me among crowds of thousands. Solid as a rock. She hasn't chewed or destroyed anything in the house other than her toys, which is unbelievable for a puppy in my opinion. She's been introduced to such a wide variety of environments, people, and dogs I couldn't possibly list them all, but the point is she hasn't flinched at anything. Her temperament is phenomenal.
The genes and instinct in this dog are incredible. This is the first pointer I've ever raised and trained, so for it to be getting compliments from both serious hunters non-hunter dog owners alike is a compliment to the pup, her genes and Robert's breeding.
Submitted by: L Willgohs on Apr 15, 2011In 2008, we decided to switch from a flushing dog to a pointing breed. We did a lot of research on pointing breeds, but not breeders. We purchased a vizsla – NOT from Shiloh Kennels. That pup started showing lots of aggression nearly immediately. Long story short, after 14 months of spending lots of time and money on training and trying to work thru the dog’s issues, we gave away the dog.
We started looking at other pointing breeds but kept coming back to the vizsla and what kind of dog it should be. Eventually, we were fortunate to find Shiloh Kennels. Rob spent an inordinate amount of time with us, and in early 2010, we brought home a new Shiloh Kennel puppy. Dot is now 16 months old and is a wonderful companion, both in our home and the field. She did a great job hunting this fall with minimal training. The strength of her hunting intuition is amazing. We highly recommend Rob and Shiloh Kennels.
Submitted by: David A. Fini on Mar 02, 2011I purchased Remington from Robert in May of 2010. This is my third Viszla I have owned in the last 16 years and I cannot say enough about the buying experience and the results I am seeing in the field and in the home at 10 months of age.
Robert took his time over a course of a couple of months talking and more importantly listening to what I was looking for in my next Viszla and we are thankful that we had a perfect match. Remington started pointing at an early age and his temperment and disposition have made training much easier than my first two dogs. I am shocked and so are most of my friends who have the opportunity to hunt over him on how well he performs in the field in under a year. It is definitely in the blood!!! We could,however,use a little more room in our beds at night whether he is sleeping with the kids or mom and dad Remy likes to spread out :)
Submitted by: kirk thomson on Feb 03, 2010we couldn't be happier with our pup.. he is one year old and is all Vizsla. Loads of energy, easily trained and a natural hunter. We would recommend the Shilo kennel to anyone. The kennel was recommended by the Pacific NW Vizsla Club and Rob sent us a great pup. He arrive via NW airlines and in great shape. We are having a great time together and family loves him. He has a great disposition and loves other dogs that run! Rob is a good breeder and we have a good pup.
Submitted by: Philip Rohs on Aug 02, 2009I recently purchased a Pup from Shiloh Kennels. I currently own two Vizslas and was looking to add a third. I am an avid hunter and competitor as well as keep my Vizslas in the house. After personally viewing a wide variety of Rob's dogs at Field Trials I was sold on getting my third dog from him. My new pup has been a pleasure around the house and has shown great potential. I would highly recommend Shiloh Kenels.
Submitted by: Mark Tortorelli on Apr 24, 2009I would enthusiastically recommend a Vizsla from Shiloh Kennels to any serious hunter. My family, friends and I have owned and hunted with several breeds including Vizlas over the past 30 years. When it was time to get a new pup two years ago, we did a lot of research and were referred to Robert Tomczak by his peers as well as his competitors. I think the little female that Robert selected and sent us may turn out to be the best of them all.
I hunt as often as possible in 2 or 3 states per year but only have enough room and time for a maximum of 2 dogs so everyone has to contribute as soon as possible. At six months with virtually no training, my Vizsla from Shiloh Kennels was pointing and retrieving wild pheasants in winter conditions. In her second year, after receiving amateur level training from me, she was covering ground at perfect ranges depending on the terrain. We harvested several species of upland birds over her and the little dog even retrieved a couple of mallards out of the river for me.
Our dog looks great, is eager to please and has an outstanding temperament. She gets along great with kids and other dogs. As a bonus, Rob always gets back to me with answers to my questions and training tips. Recently, a friend asked me if I could help him find a good dog. I only gave him one number, Rob’s.
Submitted by: Aaron on Apr 21, 2009I bought a puppy named Nem from Robert in April of 2008. Robert is a outstanding man that breeds wonderful dogs. Mine has been a great addition to the family as well as the field.
I would HIGHLY recomend purchasing a Vizsla from Robert. He has spent alot of time training me as well as Nem, and stands behind his dogs.
I have met people from all over who know of Robert and also speek highly of him and his dogs!
Submitted by: Gwen Dawson on Mar 24, 2008I purchased my first dog (and my first Vizsla) from Robert in November 2005. Checka doesn't do any field or show work, but she is absolutely the best companion dog anyone could hope for. She is extremely intelligent and knows at least as many words as a toddler. Checka is also very affectionate and sensitive to how everyone around her is feeling. If you're looking for great personality, you can't go wrong with a Shiloh Vizsla. I take Checka running with me, and she regularly runs 9-13 miles without slowing her pace--great endurance and attitude! Oh, and she's georgeous and gets compliments whereever she goes.
Submitted by: Jay Maher on Jan 18, 2008Tanners first season.
I purchased a pup we named Tanner from Rob in July 2007. Rob took the time to match his pup with our needs and factored in other dogs already living in the home. I took Tanner to a trainer in Glencoe Mn., he trained my other Viszla. He was impressed with how well Tanner was socialized; it didn't take 2-3 days for the Tanner to warm up to him. He stated Tanner was loved and handled by the breeder not just bred for sale. I took Tanner to South Dakota twice in December 2007 at 9 months of age. This pup adjusted to the different forms of cover, working as a pointer in the grass and a flusher in the cattails. His retriever drive is outstanding for a pointer, not just limited to birds like my other one. Tanner knew that birds were down in a cut cornfield, he worked the field on his own and did a 200 yard blind retrieve. All at 9 months! I have a 7 year old, she took 30 months to get to this stage in the game, and only retrieves birds. Had I bought Toms dog first I would have returned her the first season.
