Champion lines raised under-foot for exceptional health, temperament, and socialization.
First of all, our dogs are full-time in-home family members. With us or our daughter, never in a kennel. All are in crates when we go to town or when we have visitors, this is for their safety. This is so they do not get let out by guests or get into trouble when we leave. They are our kids and family, I do not support kennels and outdoor facilities, as they are unsocial prisons 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 most of our Shiba's are at least 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 Inus have slipped hocks and poor structure. Structure and temperament and health are our top focus. Color is second. 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 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 Himari is such a brilliant fire red and out of one of our cream girls :). Not to mention our cream girls and our Cream Boy have the best temperaments! So very loving. If used in a red program they should only be brought in once and a while so you don't dilute the red brilliant color.
For the most part, I do not support cream-to-cream breedings for many are so poorly bred you end up with even more poor genetic soundness this is unless you have two exceptionally well-bred creams as we do in both our male cream and our females. It is very rare to have exceptionally bred creams that have as good of bloodlines as any red Shiba. It's a hard find due to not many focused good breeders using them with good lines, so this is why I do not support most cream-to-cream breedings you will see out there, Know this it is about good genetics and in creams it is harder to find. We are very fortunate to have very well-bred cream Shiba's. Our creams all have top CH lines and top import lines. So we will do cream-to-cream breedings> Our creams are bred as good as any nicely bred red Shiba.
NOTICE: None of our Shibas have slipped hocks this is a huge structural issue and Issue in the breed so many have this terrible structural fault, far too many breeders including show breeders are allowing it 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 the coat as when they were in a cooler climate. Often with us going to Arizona and Redding Ca where it is very hot our Shiba Inu's will stay with a lighter coat. We try to take pictures of our dogs while they are in the full coat so you can see what they look like. It can make it hard for we are staying in such hot climates for the 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 the 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. A needed C-section is $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. and most do it as a passion for the breed with very little if any profit in the end. For they don't have enough litter produced and are not mass-produced to make a profit. Often donating pups they have produced to a good cause like PTSD and Therapy dogs. Understand this when you are looking for a breeder.

RETIRE SOON FEEL FREE TO INQUIRE ABOUT HER
Our gorgeous Black tan girl! This girl is what they consider a mame Shiba Inu. she is 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 Shiba Inus 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 momma's 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! Export lines on this lovely Black tan beauty her name means Ideal in Japanese
