On 30 acres in Apex, North Carolina near Raleigh, NC, SilverHill Rottweilers is quiet woods, sunny fields, a pond and the home of Cathleen Rubens and her many pure bred, AKC registered Rottweilers. In the past twenty-plus years, Cathy and SilverHill Rottweilers have ethically bred over 50 Champion Rottweilers, many of them winning Specialties and Groups and some went on to Best In Show. We are especially proud of the SilverHill Rottweilers that have gone on to become a part of, or the foundation of, other successful breeding programs.
In addition to these formal achievements, SillverHills is proud of all the many Rottweiler puppies we have placed in homes as pets. We think of each one of them as home bred Rottweiler ambassadors for their good temperaments and conformation.
Cathy is an AKC Rottweiler Breeder Judge and currently she continues her efforts to improve the breed by traveling to judge and being exposed to dogs she might not otherwise see. As Chair of the American Rottweiler Club Judges Education, she gives lectures, mentors other judges, and is active in encouraging other breeders to interpret the Rottweiler Breed Standard correctly.
