Resolute is the CKC Registered Kennel Name belonging to me – Shannon Low.  I live in the beautiful Columbia Valley near Cultus Lake BC,  on Canada’s West coast. I am an AFA Certified Farrier and have recently retired from a career of shoeing horses for over 20 years.  I have studied structure and movement in horses and dogs for virtually all my life, and have a continually expanding library.  I am always available to mentor anyone who is intent on learning about Mastiffs and canine or equine conformation.  Please go to the BREED INFORMATION page for a list of suggested reading on: anatomy, movement, breeding, genetics, and our chosen breed.


I qualified for breeder of the year with my first litter, and with very limited showing, have bred and owner handled to the top 5 in Mastiffs for several years running. I am breeder/owner/ handler of over 25 Championship titles to date in the USA and Canada, in addition to over a dozen other titles and awards, and countless Group and Specialty wins.   Best Bred By Exhibitor wins at National Specialties include: MCOA BBE Dog 2002; MCOA BBE in Show 2004; MCOA BBE Bitch 2006; CMC BBE in Show 2006; CMC BBE in Show 2008.  My dogs have been used as educational examples for several judges seminars and many public education displays.  



I am a member in good standing with the CKC, PNMF, CMC and MCOA, and am involved in education, conformation, obedience, carting & sledding, and occasional breeding. I am an active member and participate in Club activities and select moderated Mastiff email lists; however I do not participate in chat rooms as they are often a place for people to be defamatory and verbose without knowledge or accountability.



Committed - Dedicated - Involved
