First of all our dogs are full-time in-home family members. With us our Daughter Never in a kennel. Crated when we go to town our have visitors when needed but they are our kids and family I do not support kennels and outdoor facilities this is an unsocial prison for man's best friend who is on this earth to be family. We produce Black Tan Shiba Inu's, Red Shiba Inu's, sesame Shiba Inu's, and Cream Shiba Inu's. Our Shiba Inu's have health and structure. Several of our dogs go back to Chic OFA tested dogs. and fabulous imported lines one who is a direct import and another who is from two imported parents many Nippod dogs behind several of our Shibas. Our dogs have very sound health behind them as well as a great structure for the breed. Many Shiba's have slipped hocks and poor structure. Structure and temperament and health are our top focus. We are not concerned with color: Structure, health, and temperaments are the most important factor in a breeding program. You will find several AKC show breeders that will not include creams. This is a shame. The beautiful variety and it is ridiculous not to include stunning creams with fabulous healthy linage and type as well as adding them helps the fire red color and cleans up the surface color of the coat on the reds. Structure and health are the longevity of your Shiba Inu remember that not color or variety. Creams are a faulted as for show due to you can't see the white Urajiro definition for it is not desirable as the other varieties display with their contrasting color as for Reds and Black tans. Once again just a color issue as per breed standard. They are lovely in their own right and we support them fully and we here at Dakine make quality Cream Shiba Inu's. It has also been discussed that the Creams in the line also help to keep reds brilliant and not as much smutty black on the coat. So many breeders just don't understand how they can really help keep the reds clean. Our Kenji is such a brilliant fire red and out of one of our cream girls :). Not to mention our cream girls have the best temperaments! So very loving! The key with creams is a breeder should never breed cream to cream this is not wise. Should always be bred to a black tan or a red to keep the color good and to keep good linage in our creams. I do not support cream-to-cream breedings sorry personal belief with knowledge of genetics This is my opinion.
NOTICE: None of our Shibas have Slipped hocks this is a huge structural issue and Isusue in the breed so many have this terrible structural fault, far to many breeders including show breeders are allowing in their breeding program this can eventually cause Patella and Hip issues we will never have a dog in our program with this structural fault.
NOTE: When a Shiba blows coat sometimes when they are in a warmer climate they may not get as full of coat as when they were in a cooler climate. Often with us going to Arizona and Redding Ca where it is very hot our shibas will stay with a lighter coat. We try to take pictures of our dogs while they are in full coat so you can see what they look like. It can make it hard with us staying in such hot climates for a better part of the year. We spend Summers in Oregon and WA. Winters in CA and AZ.
NOTE: When a female Shiba Inu has a litter they have a hormonal blowing of coat. They will lose all coats while nursing. This makes them look a bit funny, but is all part of helping a litter and turning overcoat due to the hormones.
NOTE: You get what you pay for in this breed. Good Shiba's are very costly. A cheap-priced Shiba is either a scam or a very poorly bred dog. They are costly to import and purchase for a good breeding program and costly to raise. With a needed C section being $5000-$10,000 depending on the needs /complications of surgery. Not all Shiba's require a C section but It can and does happen. Brucellosis testing is $200-$300 a dog every time they are tested. I could list many expenses but I am sure you get the point. Good breeders have costs in their dogs they acquired, healthy, maintain, Vaccines, worming, food, supplements, heartworm prevention, flea, and tic, equipment list goes on, etc. Most do it as a passion for the breed with very little if any profit at the end.
"Dakine's Sanchi Senchi" top Japanese Import lines. Very sweet boy Shiba Inu
red Shibas are born with darker fur and some black on their surface coat they lose this and are a brilliant red like Sachi when they get their adult coat. Sachi goes to this fabulous dog :

Our Gorgeous Black tan girl! This girl is what they consider a mame Shiba Inu. Standing at 12 inches. A Mame Shiba Inu stays very small. Though as far as genetics there is no way to predict a Mame size, Shiba. Ahmya is very tiny for the breed. Personally, I don't believe in the whole Mame they are just smaller shibas that is all there is a variation in size for the Shiba Inu breed and the smaller ones are called Mame Shiba Inus. This girl is one of the Shiba's who prefers her family and doesn't want to be around strangers she is not mean just shy. such a mommas girl.
Akari is a lovely little black tan nice mover very lovely disposition. This girl is just lovely. Very intelligent and loves people. A perfect representation of the black tan variety and the breed so so lovely. Very blessed with her!
