DO NOT Consider a Shiba If…

  • you don’t have much experience and knowledge of dog psychology
  • you do not understand what an “alpha” role is.
  • you think being an alpha owner simply means being aggressive and rough
  • you want a dog that is very affectionate and cuddly
  • you want a dog that is very eager to please it’s owner
  • you want a very playful, rambunctious type of dog
  • you cannot spend enormous amounts of time with the pup during its first 6 months of life
  • you don’t have an extremely secure outdoor perimeter (especially if the Shiba will be an outdoor Shiba)

” Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished “

Dean Koontz

Consider a Shiba If..

  • You fully understand the breed and respect the importance of preserving breed standards
  • You are interested in the betterment of the breed and will not breed Shiba Inu’s unless you have the knowledge and capacity to make contributions to the breed lineage.
  • You are fully prepared and capable of managing all aspects of the rearing of a Shiba Inu
  • You prefer calm, serious and independent dogs
