Welcome to the home of Kayobi Shiba Inu!  

We invite you to browse our website and discover what we are all about! 

We are a hobby breeder of AKC/UKC Shiba Inu.  We have shown our dogs in AKC conformation and obedience events for over 25 years. This past year we have also shown UKC.  Our Shibas have proven themselves in the show ring and we have several home bred champions. We check our dogs hips, eyes and patellas through OFA and CERF to make sure our breeding dogs are clear from any problems. As of 2013 we will be sending the results into OFA so they can be published on their site as opposed to just having them available to customers who ask. Our dogs all go through several socialization and obedience classes.  We LOVE to talk about our dogs and will be happy to answer any questions you have on the breed.  You are welcome to come out and visit our dogs and puppies!   We highly recommend visiting the property on which you puppy was born and raised.  I do not recommend USDA facilities as the pups must be raised in a sterile environment that can be washed (plastic).  You cannot raise puppies in your home and they cannot be socialized with other pets and animals.  If you are unable to meet your breeder at their home, you may want to get a vet reference, check that they do indeed participate at events or are a member of a National breed club.

Also new for 2013 we have started showing at UKC shows.  The United Kennel Club is an established registry, formed in 1898.  They recognize a lot of rare breeds and have relaxed, family friendly events.  Since there are no longer people breeding and showing Shibas at AKC events here in MN, I will be doing a few more UKC events as I enjoy competing with my dogs.

All of our Shibas are AKC registered. Being registered does not guarantee a good dog as there are many AKC dogs that have poor type and bad health.  If you are buying a puppy make sure the breeder screens their dogs for hereditary health problems.  A list of recommended tests for each breed is listed at www.offa.org
